Bayit Yehudi released a scathing response on Monday to a statement by the Likud that accused the party’s leaders of cooperating with the Left.

The Likud statement said that Bayit Yehudi leaders Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked were quote, “The dear ones of the Left and [Yediot Ahronot publisher] Noni Mozes, who are supporting the never-ending attempts by Bennett and Shaked to harm Netanyahu and the rule of Likud.”Bayit Yehudi responded by accusing Netanyahu of firing inside the armored personnel carrier that is the Israeli Right.

“He is firing again at the Right, just like when he voted for the disengagement and destruction of Gush Katif, when he released more terrorists than anyone in the history of the State, when he froze construction in Judea and Samaria, when he surrendered to Hamas, and when he declared a Palestinian state at Bar Ilan University,” the Bayit Yehudi statement said. “Most ridiculously, he is firing at the right when he wants to bring [Zionist Union leaders] Isaac Herzog, Stav Shafir and Merav Michaeli after saying before the election that he would not. He always kisses up to the Right and religious before elections and a minute after them throws them away and mocks them.”
