Moving toward the January elections, Energy and Water Minister Uzi Landau (Yisrael Beytenu) has found himself united once again with the Likud party – the party of his past and a partnership that the minister calls a “strategic move” battling the country’s splintered political state.
“I have been always a member of Herut and Likud which derives its inspiration from [Ze’ev] Jabotinsky, [Menachem] Begin and [Yitzhak] Shamir,” Landau told The Jerusalem Post
during an interview last week in Tel Aviv. “When I talk about the National Camp, I like to use the analogy of a single apartment building – moving from Likud to Yisrael Beytenu I merely moved within the same camp, or just a different apartment within the same building. With this joint list we are strengthening the building and strengthening the National Camp.”
