Bennett: We’ll Defend the Land of Israel – at Any Price
The Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party must stay in the government even when that means facing unpleasant compromises, party head Minister Naftali Bennett said Monday night, speaking to supporters in the city of Haifa.
However, he assured activists, “We will protect the land of Israel at any price.”
As the Bayit Yehudi party grows, it loses the “privileges” granted to smaller parties, Bennett explained. For one thing, he said, the party must now care for the entire nation with its many and varied ethnic and religious sects, and not only for the religious-Zionist community.
