Jewish Home Candidate: Likud Attacks 'Flattering'


The Likud Beytenu party's recent criticism of Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home) is "flattering," Jewish Home candidate Yoni Shetbon told Arutz Sheva. "It's very flattering that the leading party is bothering with us... Apparently our message is making an impact."
 
The Jewish Home party, which has united with the Tekuma faction from Ichud Leumi (National Union) is expected to grow to 12-15 seats in the next Knesset, according to polls published in recent days. 
 
Shetbon said the party is increasingly getting support from secular Israelis. "The Israeli public is looking for a party with Israeli Zionist ideology," he said.
