Ariel claims Bennett, Shaked lied to rabbis to gain approval for new party
Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel attacked Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, claiming they lied to leading rabbis in order to receive their blessing before founding the new Hayemin Hehadash party, in an interview on Army Radio Sunday.

"They did something that should not be done," Ariel said. "The promised that they are going to bring new voters, and on those grounds the rabbis approved. But when Rabbi [Haim] Druckman heard that they are looking to recruit the heads of local Bayit Yehudi branches, he became angry."

"There is only one party to vote for," the rabbi said, according to Ariel.
