Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman calls on the “entire secular public” to vote in the upcoming elections.

He repeats his call for a government without the Haredi Shas and United Torah Judaism parties and refuses to walk back his recent comment saying he’ll put Netanyahu and the ultra-Orthodox factions “in a landfill.” Liberman says he only made the remark after a UTJ lawmaker said women who convert to Judaism through the military are “shiksas.”

He also says he supports “full rights” for the LGBT community and denies businesswoman Nicol Raidman’s recent claim that he refused to sit in the same room as her gay friends.

“There is no word of truth in what Nikole Raidman said,” Liberman says.
