"Our way is not one of hype, nor of maneuvering," Likud Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu said of his party at a Likud assembly at the home of MK Yisrael Katz in Kfar Ahim, relating to comments made earlier by sources close to Labor Chairman Amir Peretz regarding Israel Beiteinu's negotiations to join the coalition.
In his speech at the annual holiday gathering, Netanyahu also called on former Likud members to return to the party.
"This is the moment to bring back those who left. The task before all of us is to rebuild the Likud and return it to leading the country."
Addressing the post-war security situation in the country, Netanyahu said, "There was dispute over whether the Likud was the right way. They did an experiment - and the results are before us."
