Former Kadima head Tzipi Livni on Tuesday took aim at Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for failing to make difficult decisions regarding the integration of the ultra-orthodox (haredi) community into the broader Israeli society.

Asked in a CNN interview with Christiane Amanpour if Israel was being "sold to the ultra-orthodox," Livni responded quite bluntly: "Unfortunately yes, politically." She continued: "Unfortunate they now have more power than they should. And in a way, the Likud party and other parties gave them a monopoly on the state of Israel.”
