Shas MK Michael Malkieli slammed Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) for the series of economic changes which have a significant impact on the haredi community.

Speaking to 103 FM Radio, Maklieli said, "When Liberman talks about this, apparently he also realized that we are in an election period. For decades already, Liberman's method when it comes to elections is to incite and blame another sector. For years this was the Arabs, now it somehow became the haredim."

"When he talks about cuts, decrees, incitement towards the haredi community - Liberman's head is on the one on the street signs, on stickers, on the interviews with his friends during the election period - and this is what he does."

According to Malkieli, "We all know that what is behind these statements are not professional statements and not real concerns. Liberman's decrees - on the daycare issue, he spoke about 6,000 women who will leave their workplaces. Where is the economic logic in that? Is that called an economic consideration or simply revenge against the haredi community?
