Otzma Yehudit warns Haredi parties against thwarting death sentence bill

The far-right Otzma Yehudit party is warning that it could thwart coalition legislation if Haredi parties do not continue to support its bill for a death sentence for terrorists.

Sources in the party tell the Srugim website: “If their fingers are free, our fingers can be free on various bills.”

The bill passed its preliminary reading in the Knesset plenum yesterday, but Haredi parties have warned they are unlikely to support it in further votes due to their religious beliefs.
