Twenty-four years after Kach was banned from the Knesset, Rabbi Meir Kahane's disciples are running for the 19th Knesset as their own party.
MK Michael Ben-Ari (National Union) announced on Sunday night that he would be running with right-wing activists Baruch Marzel and Itamar Ben Gvir to fill "the void left on the right by [Foreign Minister] Avigdor Liberman when he decided to run with the Likud."
The new party does not yet have a name, but Ben Gvir said it will not be Kach or splinter group Kahane Chai. It adapted Yisrael Beytenu's old slogan – "Only Liberman understands Arabic" – to fit their needs: "The only ones who understand Arabic."
