A joint campaign by Likud and the Union of Right-Wing Parties (URP) against the New Right is "threatening to destroy us," Caroline Glick, a member of the party, warned Tuesday afternoon.

The URP has attacked both the New Right - led by Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked - as well as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyanu for trying to "drink up votes" of religious Zionists. 

"Netanyahu will form the next government," Glick wrote on Twitter. "The URP will stroll over the election threshold."

"Vote 'נ' (The letter on the voting slip for the New Right). We need you," Glick wrote in the tweet. The party has pushed a hard right-wing agenda, calling to annex Israeli settlements in the West Bank and to change the way justices are appointed to the Supreme Court. 

Glick is number six on the party's list, meaning that the party would have to get at least six seats for her to enter the 21st Knesset.

Before entering politics, Glick served as a senior columnist for The Jerusalem Post. In an interview in February, she said: “The ideas I’ve been communicating for 16 years in The Jerusalem Post are the same ideas and convictions that will be informing everything I do in the Knesset, and will play a major role in determining policies in this party going forward."
