      Bennett: We Changed the Political Map With Yesh Atid Pact

      Responding to supporters and opponents of his policy of coordinating entry into the government with Yesh Atid, Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party head Naftali Bennett said Sunday that had the decision to enter into a “pact” with Yesh Atid not been made, Jewish Home would have been left out of the government, as this was Binyamin Netanyahu's plan all along. Last week, both Bennett and Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid declared that neither would join the coalition Netanyahu was trying to cobble together unless the other was included.
