New Jerusalem Construction ‘Thanks to Bennet’

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s decision to allow construction east of Jerusalem was motivated by “fear of Naftali Bennet,” Channel 10 reported Tuesday, based on statements from an unidentified senior minister. Netanyahu is trying not to lose right-wing votes to Bennet, the minister explained.

“When there is a new government, and new American pressure, this plan will be buried as it was before,” he predicted.
