Shas responded to Yisrael Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Lieberman.

"Unfortunately, Mr. Lieberman is not telling the truth about the draft law, and he uses it as an excuse to topple the right-wing government," he said, adding that Shas had never agreed to pass the law without a change of a "comma or word."

Pull your hands away from the wild incitement against the public and fulfill your commitment to establish a right-wing government. "
