Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid combine forces

They have a pretty good coalition negotiation strategy, to make clear to Netanyahu that both their political parties are to be in the government together or not at all:
Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid have created a pact between their two parties, agreeing that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will have either both of their parties in his coalition or neither, political sources have told Arutz Sheva.

Together, the two have 31 seats. Netanyahu’s chances of putting together a coalition without either party are not considered good.

Bennett and Lapid banded together due to a shared interest in preventing Netanyahu from creating a coalition that excluded one of them in favor of hareidi-religious or left-wing parties.
I'd say that's an excellent idea. This way, they can maintain some influence for a good cause. I'm sure there'll be some things about Yesh Atid that I won't enjoy hearing, but for now, any teaming with Bayit Yehudi is good for the sake of many pressing issues.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I do not know if I'll ever be as good as him, but I do my best.
