Netanyahu, Bennett aim to 'wake up' the Right

March 7, 2015 22:36

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett expressed concern over the weekend that the Left could win the March 17 election if voters on the Right do not "wake up."

Netanyahu wrote on Facebook Saturday night that "the danger of the election is the formation of a left-wing government led by Tzipi [Livni] and Buji [Isaac Herzog] with the support of the Arab party [Joint (Arab) List]." He wrote that only a government led by him could "stand up to international pressure, prevent the evacuation of Judea and Samaria, and keep Jerusalem undivided and united forever."

The Likud released a video Saturday night that showed Netanyahu unwilling to give up Jerusalem in a game of monopoly.

Bennett warned in a letter on Facebook that was shared by more than 2000 people that if the Right does not form the next government, the Left would make concessions that would lead to rockets on Netanya and terror tunnels to Shoham from former settlements that would become part of a Palestinian state.
