MK Pines: Netanyahu struck nasty deal with Eitam, sold Likud out for cash

MK Ophir Paz-Pines (Labor) on Wednesday criticized the decision reached by Likud chair and opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu and MK Effi Eitam, according to which Eitam's Ahi party will merge with Likud, and said that Netanyahu had "sold out" his party for NIS 12 million. "Netanyahu was feeling stressed out again over the Likud's financial troubles, and the solution he found was to sell the Likud to the far-Right in exchange for cash," Pines said in a press release. "This behavior is only a preview of what would happen if Netanyahu becomes prime minister, in which case he won't hesitate to break his promises in order to satisfy the far-right and the haredis."
