Knesset holds stormy session ahead of Kadima chairman's induction as Coalition member. Opposition blames party for being a 'rotten apple that undermines the public's faith in the House'
Kadima Knesset members affiliated with the party's leftist bloc leveled harsh criticism at Chairman Shaul Mofaz over his controversial decision to join the Likud-led coalition.
"I am part of a Bolshevik coalition," MK Nino Abesadze said during a conference held at the ZOA House in Tel Aviv on Friday.
"This crazy Bolshevik camp, which includes Zeev Elkin and Tzipi Hotovely, must be stopped," said the MK, who immigrated to Israel from Georgia.
Fellow Kadima member Shlomo Molla, who initially considered voting against Mofaz's appointment as minister-without-portfolio and deputy PM, said "we will not be able to promote anything when all the funds go to the settlements.
"When we ask to pass legislation for children at risk, they tell us there is no money, but they always find money to build another access road to some illegal outpost in Nablus," he told the hundreds of leftists who attended the conference, which was planned prior to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's decision to call off the September elections and sign a unity deal with Kadima.
Molla also referred to a meeting held earlier in the day, in which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's top cabinet ministers – including new Vice Prime Minister and Kadima chief Shaul Mofaz – discussed the fate of the Ulpana Hill outpost in the West Bank.
"If Mofaz didn't draw a red line in today's meeting, saying that a discussion to legitimize West Bank outposts shouldn't even take place, then we're just the Likud and we were introduced to make the Likud look better," Moll said.
The Knesset plenum held a heated session Wednesday, ahead of Kadima Chairman Shaul Mofaz's induction as a new minister in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government.
"You've sold your soul to the devil," MK Binyamin Ben-Eliezer (Labor) blasted Mofaz. "The devil is the only one that profits from the deal," he said.
