Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on social media on Sunday claiming that, less than a week after a massive NIS 1.2 billion cut “Netanyahu sees fit to give NIS 2 million bonus to haredi education.”


Liberman further said that the overall sum the Netanyahu administration means to give haredi needs is NIS 450 million. He released a photo of beaming Interior Minister Arye Deri with the caption: "A financial crises? Doesn’t bother us."

“You won’t believe your eyes,” Liberman said, “When NIS 120 million are being given to the Ministry of Religious Services…NIS 100 million are being cut from the salaries of police officers, prison wardens and fire-fighters.”

Liberman said that “only a national unity government, made of ‘Yisraeli Beiteinu,’ ‘Likud’ and ‘Blue and White’ can…save the State of Israel from a government based on religious law.”
