Nu, I'm not exaggerating at all. Naftali Bennett said it, not me. I'm just trying to warn you:
Habayit Hayehudi chairman: "I worked for Netanyahu, and his heart is in the right place ... He wants to do good, and he needs strong, ethical people by his side to guarantee that he remains steadfast."
More on what Bennett said:
Think about it."These last few days, many people have spoken about extremism in Habayit Hayehudi, and Likud MKs are the instigators of such discourse. I believe that we are a real centrist party. Likud has deviated to the left," Bennett said.Despite Bennett's criticism of Netanyahu, the Habayit Hayehudi chairman said his party would back the incumbent prime minister's ongoing premiership following the elections.
Bennett — who opposes the creation of a Palestinian state — refused to comment on whether he would agree to future peace negotiations between Jerusalem and the Palestinian government.
"I intend to be one of Netanyahu's reliable partners, but I don't want to cross any red lines right now," he said.
In the Israeli political system, when you have a large party with a variety of opinions among the MK's then the party leader is more apt to ignore his/her internal opposition. The Bayit Yehudi/NRP has become such a party. They even have non-religious candidates who have a very different agenda from the old stalwarts.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has the talents to be a great poker player, or chess player. Those are games you play without a team. You can't trust anyone else. You can't consult. If anyone, and that includes Bennett, thinks that Bibi will ask his advice about the important issues, he's wrong. He should know better than that.
These past four years Netanyahu allowed Ehud Barak, whose policies are the opposite of most Likud members and voters, rule Jewish life in Judea and Samaria. It was/is Barak's signature that is missing on documents that would make all sorts of homes and neighborhoods and communities 100% legal and approved. It was Ehud Barak, as Bibi's Defense Minister, who had Jewish homes and Jewish communities destroyed. Bibi gave him full leeway. And Bayit Yehudi aka NRP was in that very same government coalition. Could they stop it? NO! And could the pro-Jewish life in Judea/Samaria Likud MK's stop it? NO!
Don't be delusional, please.
Politics isn't simple democracy.
That's why I'm voting נץ Otzma LeYisrael! We need Knesset Member who are willing to fight for what's right/Right and aren't planning their cabinet portfolio.
