2 candidates for Jewish Home party made chauvinist statements
Likud strategist Arthur Finkelstein arrived in Israel Tuesday and met Wednesday with Netanyahu and the heads of the Likud campaign. He advised them to stop attacking Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett but to reveal extremist and chauvinist statements made by candidates on the Bayit Yehudi list.Good grief, these kind of people are being allowed to run with their party? In a day and age when the last thing we need in Jewish society is for sex segregation beliefs to be advocated, these kind of jerks were chosen to run on their listing? The Elitzur sport movement, I believe, is part of Bnei Akiva, and what Yogev did to them has only ended up harming the reputation of a once well regarded movement.
The chairman of the Likud campaign, Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar immediately took Finkelstein's advice. At a meeting with students at Bar-Ilan University Wednesday, he criticized Bayit Yehudi's number four candidate, Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan, for calling for the cancellation of the Knesset Committee for the Advancement of Women and its number nine candidate Moti Yogev for leading the separation between sexes when he headed the religious Zionist youth group Bnai Akiva.
So I think there's as good a reason as any why not to cast your vote for Jewish Home, and not for Shas either. I'll definitely be voting for the Likud.
