Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett went back on a comment he made a week ago in Nissim Mishal's Channel 2 show, saying he would ask to be exempted from orders to remove settlers from their homes were he in such a position, and flirted with the possibility of order refusal.

"I am a major in reserve duty and I was bothered by the damaging impact of my words to young people who see me as a role model. I reached the conclusion that I don't have the right to say even that private comment about myself, because of its repercussions," Bennett said during an event at IDC Herzliya.

"Every combat soldier that gets an order, and it is not a lawful order, has to obey it, and this includes Naftali Bennett," he added.
