Otzma LeYisrael Thank Voters "Who Didn't Follow Trends"


The Otzma LeYisrael party headed by outgoing Members of Knesset Aryeh Eldad and Michael Ben Ari just narrowly missed the threshold for the Knesset, according to the Central Election Committee's latest statistics. They were the largest party of all those who did not make the threshold, garnering 61,825 votes.

The party released a statement on Facebook which read as follows: "We thank you all for your love the land of Israel. You are the people who do not follow trends... but are honest and have faith. Our way is not easy. The Jewish people had to fight for their lives and for righteousness throughout generations and we, who hold a strict and clear vision of Israel, must fight for our ways. Faith and love will forever remain. It will grow and flourish with time and our obligation is to always maintain this homeland."
