Bennett: Greater Israel is Not Our Main Issue


Chairman Naftali Bennett and members of Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) want to be members of a government led by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, according to a Monday report by the Ha'aretz daily. The newspaper quoted Bennet as saying, "We'll be responsible partners." He made it clear, "We're not coming to explode the government two months after we join it. We're not coming to bring the government for any reason."

Bennett said, "As long as there's o decision to give away land, we have no reason to leave the government. On the contrary, we are coming with a broad, mature and national view; not another right-sectoral view. Our passion - what drives us - is the good of all the people of Israel, and that's what will guide us in the government. We came to work.
