Someone Tried to Keep Danny Dayan Away from Bennett


Unpleasantness was caused last week, when the staff of the office of Economics Minister and Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) chairman Naftali Bennett told representatives of the Yesha Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) that former Council Chairman Danny Dayan would be forcibly removed if he tried to take part in a meeting between Bennett and council representatives, according to a Friday report by the Ma'ariv daily.

The Yesha Council representatives told the Bennett staff that nobody, not even the prime minister, determines who the council's representatives will be. When Bennett found out, he sent a text message to Dayan that the warnings were made without his knowledge and that he would be happy if Dayan came. In the meanwhile, Dayan had made other plans but, he told Arutz Sheva', he believed Bennett.
