Feiglin: Likud Attacks on Jewish Home Sent Voters to Lapid


The Likud’s campaign against the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) hurt the party and caused voters to vote for Yesh Atid, Likud candidate Moshe Feiglin said on Wednesday.

“We must learn the lessons from this campaign, it did not help the Likud but rather Yair Lapid,” Feiglin told Arutz Sheva, as results from the election indicated that the Likud Beytenu would only win 31 Knesset seats, keeping it in power but significantly weakening it. “According to Mina Tzemach’s poll, 50 percent of Lapid’s votes were right-wing non-religious people who the Likud scared away and they voted for Lapid. The campaign against religious Zionism was stupid.”
