Bennett on Beit Shemesh: This is the 'Last Chance'


Economy Minister Naftali Bennett, chairman of the Jewish Home party, spoke on Thursday with Eli Cohen, who ran for the position of mayor of Beit Shemesh and was supported by the Jewish Home.

"I welcome the decision of the court regarding Beit Shemesh, which clearly determined that elections cannot be decided through fraud," said Bennett. "Beit Shemesh is a microcosm of Israeli society. It’s a place where there should be sensitivity between the religious, the secular and the hareidim. This is our last chance to return Beit Shemesh to its residents.”
