The heads of the Otzma LeYisrael (Power to Israel) party, MKs Aryeh Eldad and Michael Ben-Ari, welcomed on Friday the announcement by Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett that he would refuse orders to evacuate Jews from their homes.
"Otzma LeYisrael hopes that Bennett will not panic and take back his words because of the wave of condemnations from the so-called right wing benches of the Likud," they said.
Eldad and Ben-Ari added, "The true face of the Likud, which is preparing for the establishment of a Palestinian state and the next expulsion of Jews, has been exposed. The Likud did not learn anything but we have not forgotten nor forgiven."
