Netanyahu Tries to Slam Bayit Yehudi on Women's Status


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu attacked Bayit Yehudi in televised interviews Saturday night, and mentioned the "exclusion of women" as a point of contention with the religious Zionist party. Netanyahu told Channels 2 and 10 that he is not ruling out adding any party to the coalition. "Our principles are very clear," he stated. Regarding Bennett, he said, "I was happy to hear that he corrected his statement [about refusing orders to evict Jews from their homes]. I refuse to accept refusal of orders and the exclusion of women." However, Bayit Yehudi has 3 women in its first 12 spots, while Likud has only one.
