"Likud voters have been hit very hard by the economic plan and they are furious," said Ashkelon city councilman Haim Barda, who heads the Likud branch in the city. "I intend to fight against Netanyahu and everyone in the party who harmed the people who have supported us for so long.
"The Likud depends on the people in the poor neighborhoods who have been targeted by the plan. I think they will think twice about voting Likud in the future."
Hmmmm. Not too good for Bibi. It seems clear now that his attempt to liberalize Israel's economy is going to fail. The Socialist establishment is simply too entrenched.
