MK Carmel Shama-Hacohen (Likud) called Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz "retarded," due to his financial policies.

In response to the rise in prices of gas and other necessities, Shamah said in an interview with Army Radio: "Retards, open your eyes and ears! We are complaining for the past month about the rising prices. It's like a semi-trailer going down a hill, while pressing on the gas."
