Former MK Oren Hazan on Saturday night emphasized that in his opinion, what's important is not who gets into the Knesset, but that there is a sizable right-wing party in addition to the Likud.

In a conversation with Dr. Joseph Frager at the Ateret Cohanim gala event in New York, Hazan said, "I knew this was going to happen, I knew that [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu [would] eat the cake that he made."

"I'm going to run for this election, I just don't know how I'm going to do it," he promised. "I believe that all the people from the right-wing of the map will sit together and find a way to make another big party like the Likud party, and I hope we will succeed."

"It can be more simple than everybody thinks. Everybody just needs to lower their ego, that's all. I don't want to be in the first place, I don't even care to be at the end. It doesn't matter. The idea is to find a way to build a strong country, because now we have good friends in America.

"The time is ticking, we cannot wait.... I'm calling all my friends from the right-wing, let's sit together at the table, and let's find the right key to run together in the elections, to build a strong a strong right government for Israel, to fix the things that's broken, and to build a better future for all of us."
