Likud Minister Urges Not to Vote for 'Homophobic and Dark' Bayit Yehudi List

"In 2013 there are still 'Homophobic' Knesset candidates who hold dark views, such as preventing gays and lesbians to join the IDF," Minister Limor Livnat (Likud) wrote in a Facebook Statues today. 

"I think there is a duty to 'take out of the closet' those candidates with these dark views opinions, so voters can really decide whether they want to select them," referring to some of the Bayit Yehudi's party list candidates who have waged comments against same gender equality and equal representation for women.

"Like the Prime Minister and other senior Likud members, I fought all my public life for gender equality and against discrimination of sexual orientation. Don't make the mistake - voting for and strengthening the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) may drag us tens and hundreds of years back," she stressed.
