Jewish Home Knesset Faction Adopts Bennett's Stance


The Knesset faction of the Jewish Home party decided, Friday, to adopt the position of party chairman Naftali Bennett to leave the ruling coalition if the government accepts a deal that calls for the release of Israeli security prisoners.

Following an emergency meeting of the faction, the party issued a statement saying the decision came "after a comprehensive discussion of the political deterioration that has occurred in recent days". The statement added, "It is time to return perserverance to the State of Israel."
