Recordings of MK Orly Levy-Abecasis mocking Caroline Glick, a former Jerusalem Post columnist who recently joined the New Right (Hayemin Hehadash) political party, were released on KAN News Monday.
"I am telling you, most people won't work for you. Because what will you give them? Someone like Glick? Someone who will give you publicity and write you articles on the traitorous left," slandering Glick for her work in journalism.
"Orly, Orly, Orly. First of all have some respect for Caroline Glick. The ideology she has in a fingernail, you don’t have in your whole body," Hayemin Hahadash tweeted in response to Levy-Abecasis. "She has 50 years of experience compared to your two days of work."

Levy-Abecasis was not the first to critique Glick, Yediot Aharonot columnist and Blazer magazine editor Ra’anan Shaked, insulted her along with all American Jews have come to Israel, claiming they make aliya because they cannot obtain a job elsewhere.
“Caroline Glick? Really Naftali [Bennett] and Ayelet [Shaked]?” Ra’anan Shaked asked in a tweet directed to New Right’s leaders. “You really think that there is some electoral force to the always-amusing sub-stream of scattered Isramericans that came here from their homeland – where there is a doubt if they would have gotten a job that doesn’t includes the question ‘Do you want fries with that?’ – in order to be Daniella Weiss with an accent? Nu, good luck to you.”
Party co-chairman Naftali Bennett called “Caroline is a relentless Zionist fighter,” after Glick joined the party. “With her, we are building today the dream team of the Israeli Right in order to expand the right-wing block – so that Israel can be triumphant again.”
Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, the party’s other leader, called Glick “a courageous fighter symbolizing the real, pure, conservative Right. She will be a great addition to the Knesset from our side.”
Glick wrote in an Op-Ed in the post about her decision to launch her political career.
"I am convinced that restoring Israel’s democratic institutions is the most urgent task we face today," Glick wrote.
