Secular Nationalist Team Strengthens National Union


Secular youth gathered, Thursday evening, at theTel Aviv offices of the Tikva party and met with Member of Knesset Aryeh Eldad (National Union. The meeting's objectives were to outline a way to expose the party to the secular public and provide an official home for young people with a common ideology, who identify with the National Union.

"One of the goals," said Yitzchak Wasserlauf, Vice Chairman of the young leadership, "is to expose the secular public to the party. Our party must break through the stigma that the National Union belongs only the religious sector." Other objectives are the establishment of a Zionist propaganda network through the Internet, a staff to make contact with the general public and the building of an infrastructure for the establishment of universities cells, as well as recruitment of staffing for operating activities in the party's young leadership institutions. Wasserlauf added, "This place is the home of the real right and people are starting to understand it. Today I saw frustrated young men who were active and energetic in Israel Beiteinu and Likud, and joined us. There are so many political refugees, fed up with seeing those parties that are not true to their promises. The potential is enormous and it's time to put it to work."
