Netanyahu: Bennet’s New Party Is A Mortal Blow To Israel’s Right


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is concerned that the launch of a new party by former Jewish Home ministers Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked could cause a number of smaller right-wing factions to fail to reach the minimum threshold, crippling the right and leading to the election of a left-wing government, Israel Hayom reported Monday.

On Saturday night, Bennett and Shaked announced plans to break away from the Jewish Home and form a new party, called the New Right (Hayamin Hahadash).

According to a report by Israel Hayom, Netanyahu warned Likud leaders that the formation of the New Right constituted a “mortal blow to the national camp, and is liable to lead to the establishment of a left-wing government.”
