Broiges of the week: Yakov Litzman v Meir Porush

November 20, 2008

Strictly orthodox MK Yakov Litzman is in trouble with the supporters of defeated strictly Orthodox mayoral candidate Meir Porush.

Litzman angered Porush and his supporters by backing a secular candidate, Nir Barkat, for mayor of Jerusalem - an election in which Barkat subsequently triumphed.

Porush's suporters were so angered by this betrayal that they physically assaulted Litzman at a family celebration last Saturday.
