Yoel Hasson: Campaign Against Bennett Hypocritical


Member of Knesset Yoel Hasson, who heads the reaction team of Tzipi Livni's Hatenu'ah party, criticized, Monday morning, a Likud party campaign against recent comments by Chairman Naftali Bennett of Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) that he would not carry out military orders to evict Jews. Referring to Prime Minister and Likud Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu, Hasson said, "Netanyahu has been caught again trying to fool the people of Israel. Likud is hiding the fact that a minister is sitting in the government who is clinging to refusing orders and to hide it, he is publishing advertisements in newspapers against refusal."

Hasson continued, "Senior Likud members have sold their souls to get into the deal of [Jewish Leadership faction leader Moshe] Feiglin, who waves a real flag of refusal. Likud-Beyteinu is the nest where the ideology of refusal grew and therefore an awareness campaign against Bennett is hypocrisy and no more than political spin."
