Bayit Yehudi will not remain in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s government if it officially adopts proposals that US Secretary of State John Kerry has presented, party leader Naftali Bennett said in closed conversations Wednesday.

Ahead of Kerry’s visit, Bennett spoke multiple times this week with Netanyahu and Israel’s negotiators in peace talks with the Palestinians. He insisted on receiving as much information as possible about America’s proposal immediately after Kerry meets with Netanyahu.

“Bennett is up to speed and has done his homework,” a source close to him said. “He will not present red lines publicly, but those who need to know, know.”

An MK who spoke to Bennett said he would not accept the adoption of Kerry’s proposal, even if Israel were allowed to submit reservations about the plan.
