Former MK who stopped Shimon Peres's "stinky trick" passes away

One of the better members of the UTJ party has died at 92:
Former UTJ and Agudath Yisrael Workers’ Party MK Avraham Verdiger was laid to rest in Jerusalem Wednesday night, after his death at age 92.

Verdiger famously blocked the 1990 “Stinky Deal” to topple then-premier Yitzhak Shamir and make Shimon Peres prime minister with a left-wing and haredi coalition, due to opposition by the Lubavitcher Rebbe (Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson) who was against territorial concessions, as he believed they were a security risk and would not bring peace.

The deal, which was given the moniker “stinky” by Yitzhak Rabin, ultimately failed because Verdiger and MK Eliezer Mizrahi, also of Agudath Yisrael, would not back Peres.
For which they deserve thanks, a lot more than can be said for the idiots running that party today. Shas had tried to help Peres pull this off, but ultimately failed on their part.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
