Livni takes aim at Netanyahu over haredim

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.”
