Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett called upon Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday to negotiate with his party on joining the coalition, despite a deal made a day earlier with the Tzipi Livni Party.

Bennett came under pressure from within his party to shun Netanyahu after the prime minister broke a campaign promise to not allow Livni to negotiate with the Palestinians. But in a speech at a Bayit Yehudi convention in Jerusalem, Bennett instead sent an olive branch to the man he once served as chief of staff.

"The negotiations are on the prime minister's shoulder and we want to give him a hand," Bennett said. "For decades we were natural partners. In the campaign, we were blatantly smeared. Something in our partnership unraveled, but it is not too late to fix it."
