Quotes

Shas chairman Aryeh Deri called the cut, "A scandal and insolence on the part of the government." He added, "Instead of cutting tax benefits for rich people and huge budgets for the upper class, the rich people's government has elected to take from the other Israel -- from those whose voices are not heard. I call on the members of the government to vote against the cut, and not to lend a hand to the continued trampling of the disadvantaged."
According to Gal-On, cutting the education budget is "giving the bill for OPE to all of our children and grandchildren. Using OPE to squeeze out more and more funds while not giving a response to tough questions like what the money is meant for and whether it was used appropriately, is a years-old tradition for the Defense Ministry. The public should know that ever shekel that is not cut from the defense budget is instead of giving our children a quality education" she said
"Every tunnel is a message to the world - the destruction in Gaza is not for nothing."
