Liberman condemns Shas’ exclusion of women, says Deri heading to opposition

Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman condemns the Shas party, after leader Aryeh Deri says there are no women on his ultra-Orthodox slate because it isn’t their “natural place.”

Branding Deri the “minister of the exclusion of women,” Liberman adds: “On Tuesday, we’ll show him his natural place and fling him and his [United Torah Judaism] allies Litzman and Gafni to the opposition.”
