Why Bennett Left the Yesha Council

Apparently it was due to criticism of Netanyahu after the Migron evacuation.

According to Dani Dayan, at his Facebook account, the reason Naftali Bennet left (or was forced to leave) his position at the Yesha Council was his words just after the Migron evacuation, and repeated a few days afterwards.

In his pro-Likud ad, Dani had said

“No Naftali, Tzipi is really not to be preferred over Bibi”

What was the context?

First, in the Hebrew:

בנוסף מזכיר דיין את נפתלי בנט תוך שהוא שולח עקיצה לעברו, “…לא נפתלי, ציפי ממש לא עדיפה על ביבי…” – בדבריו מכוון דיין לדבריו של בנט בתקופה של פינוי מגרון והקפאת הבניה ביו”ש אז אמר בנט כי לבני עדיפה על בנימין נתניהו לראשות ממשלה.

And in translation,

“at the time of the Migron dismantlement, and during the construction freeze, Bennett had said that Livni is better than Benjamin Netanyahu for the premiership”

Dani was responding to Elyahsiv Reicher’s comment that his reference to Naftali was “inconsequential”.  The Likud spox mentioned an interview with Shalom Yerushalmi as the source.*

Dani didn’t think it was that minor, even after the nightime expulsion of three families and the destruction of their homes, and wrote that because of that, Bennett had to leave his position.

If you read Hebrew, go there as the comments and Dani’s input are piling up.

*UPDATE: For the original comment, Maariv Sept. 10, 2011:

“הממשלה של נתניהו היא הגרועה ביותר שהייתה עד היום להתיישבות,” ממשיך בנט במתקפת הזעם שלו. “הכל שם תחפושת. פעם ראשונה הקפיאו, פעם שנייה הרסו, פעם שלישית נותנים לערבים לבנות בכל מקום. עכשיו הם חכמים על שלוש המשפחות הללו. הכל נובע מהראש. נתניהו חלש, רופס, הוא ת”פ )תחת פיקוד. ש”י( של שר הביטחון. מי אומר שהוא ראש הממשלה של הימין? אהוד אולמרט מעולם לא הקפיא את כל הבנייה ביהודה ושומרון. גם ציפי לבני לא הייתה מקפיאה.” 

“Netanyahu’s government is the worst that there has been for settlements until this day,” Bennett continued with his angry attack. “Everything there is dress up. First they freeze, a second time they destroy, a third time they allow the Arabs to build everywhere. Now they are smart about these three families. It all flows from the head. Netanyahu is weak, feeble, under the command of the defense minister. Who says he is a Prime Minister of the Right? Ehud Olmert would never freeze all of construction in Judea and Samaria. Even Tzipi Livni would not freeze.” [English Translation by Jewish Press]

  1. Michal Dar-El says:

    Bennet was kicked out from Yesha council when he wanted to join the far-left putsch aka "the social protest". He was also kicked out from the Netanyahu's office and all doors of other Likud MKs were shut in his face.
    Not an impressive record for a right-winger.
