The pro-Netanyahu daily Israel Hayom and the anti-Netanyahu Haaretz have finally found something to agree on: Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett is destroying himself and his party by refusing to crawl into Binyamin Netanyahu’s government on any terms. Doesn’t he understand, the papers’ pundits ask, that his voters’ only interests are the settlements and religious Zionist institutions, interests whose furtherance requires being in the coalition? Many Likud politicians echo this view. How, they demand, can Bayit Yehudi be the one to “prevent the formation of a Likud government?”
