New faces vie for their place in the Likud and the Knesset. Tamar
speaks with contender Orly Benny Davis
. She vied for the 24th women place on the Likud platform. Orly represents the global Jewish Diaspora and her goals as a political activist are to foster stronger ties between Israel and world Jewry. Orly is an Israeli patriot and proud Zionist. She would like to see the Holy Temple rebuilt, as she says, the Christians have a place to worship, the Muslims have a place to worship, and so too do the Jews need a place to worship. Orly believes that Israeli citizens residing overseas should also have a right to vote in the national elections. Her ideas are not the 'usual' aspirations of most politicians, but she'd like to make them mainstream.
After this show played, the results of the primaries indicated that Orly Benny Davis did not make it onto the official Likud list for the next Knesset, In spite of this, the Likud did get more of a 'right' face, as new right-wing faces entered the arena!
Plus, Tamar's weekly guest, 'Dan, the Guy Who Works With Leftists' talks about the cease-fire and the upcoming elections.
