Yair Shamir, son of former prime minister Yitzhak Shamir, announced on Friday that he is joining Yisrael Beytenu and entering politics.

"For my father, the path was more important than the party, and his path was freedom of the individual, wholeness of the nation and the land, and aliya," Shamir said in an interview with Yediot Aharonot. "He would join whoever had that merchandise, and I am sure that he would have considered Yisrael Beytenu."
