Porush accuses Peretz of incitement


Knesset Member Meir Porush (United Torah Judaism) has charged Labor party chairman Amir Peretz with slandering the ultra orthodox Haredi community. Peretz recently told a conference of businessmen that Haredim should be integrated into the work force.
Porush called the remarks "incitement" and charged Peretz with copying the anti-secular polices of Shinui party chairman Yosef (Tomy) Lapid. The UTJ MK said that portraying Haredi Jews as unemployed is libelous. "The tax department can provide exact figures how much taxes Haredi Jews pay," he explained.
