Naftali Bennett gets a big boost after his quarrel with Netanyahu

Following the whole "Jews in palestine" controversy, the Jewish Home party got a big boost from it in polls:
A new poll, conducted by "Panels Politics" for the Knesset TV Channel, reveals that the crisis between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Economics Minister Naftali Bennett that began this Sunday and threatened to break up the coalition has apparently ended in Bennett's favor. [...]

The new poll reveals that following the political clashes, were a general election to be held Netanyahu's Likud Beytenu would drop one seat to 30 mandates, while Bennett's Jewish Home would jump to 17 seats - five more than its current showing.
And that's because Bennett was trying to be altruistic, far more than Netanyahu was.

However, there's an eyebrow raising discovery in all this catastrophe:
Reports by a senior coalition member who spoke on condition of anonymity revealed that the entire crisis was engineered by a senior member of Netanyahu's office to develop a rift between the two parties.

According to the source, the member of Netanyahu's office managed to "turn the whole thing into an unnecessary conflagration between the two men," as opposed to a debate over policy, adding that the issue had gone "beyond a joke and an embarrassment."

Apparently the voting public agreed, as the political tactic to sow tension has turned against Netanyahu according to the recent poll.
I'm not sure if this revelation was why Bennett apologized, but Netanyahu didn't handle it well. Still, the office drone they speak of should be punished severely for doing something extraordinarily offensive, suggesting he/she's a leftist plant. Some Likud MKs have given Bennett backing, and rightly so. This case was an embarrassment, but not a joke. Bennett made a point that Jews living under PLO rule would be murdered, and as any expert could tell you, we cannot take taqqiya statements they'd make at face value. Again, whoever that awful government office employee was, he/she should be fired and ostracized for making such offensive remarks.
