Bennett to Netanyahu: Yes or No, will You Order More Expulsions?

Bayit Yehudi Chairman Naftali Bennett denied Saturday evening that he had called on soldiers to refuse orders to evict Jews from their homes in a television interview last week. He accused Likud of playing a dangerous game in turning the interview into a major election issue. "This evening, I turn to ten s of thousands of youths and IDF soldiers who see me as a role model," he said. "Because of political games and media spin, the IDF's unity could be seriously damaged."
