Labor leader Yacimovich slams Likud, Beytenu merger

Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich on Thursday denounced the merger between Likud and Yisrael Beytenu, saying "the union between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman has created a new extremist and racist party."
Yacimovich called on voters "who lost their political homes as a result of the unification to join Labor and not allow Netanyahu and Liberman to govern."
