Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman comes under fire after pledging he’ll take the “ultra-Orthodox together with Bibi [Netanyahu] on a wheelbarrow to a landfill. “

Yamina leader Naftali Bennett says, in a tweet: “As usual, a few days before elections, Liberman is coming out with disgusting cries of hatred to garner votes.”

Likud’s Intelligence Minister Eli Cohen calls his statement “borderline anti-Semitism.”
