Bennett Rejects Ma'ariv Report

Executive Director Naftali Bennett of the Yesha Council of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, rejected, on Friday, a report this week in the Ma'ariv daily that the end of his tenure, at the end of the year, is connected to his visit to a social protest tent on Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv and his support for the social-justice campaign. In a conversation with Arutz Sheva, Bennett said he told a reporter from the newspaper that the item was a lie but it was published anyway.

Bennett said he is exploring creation or support of a leading, influential group on the right side of Israel's political spectrum, adding that he was not returning to the business world but continuing to work for the state and people of Israel.
