      Hanegbi: If Bennett Can't Back the PM, He Should Resign


      Chairman of the Knesset Committe MK Tzahi Hanegbi (Likud Beytenu) told Chairman of the Knesset's Jewish Home faction and Minister of Economy, MK Naftali Bennett, that he should resign his position if he couldn't back the Prime Minister as was fitting.

      "If Minister Naftali Bennett is not equipped to lie to himself, and he is not ready to back the Prime Minister, then he needs to resign from his position," Hanegbi said in an interview this morning (Wednesday) with Reshet Bet (Channel 2).

      Hanegbi said that eventually Netanyahu's patience with Bennett would run out.
