Following harsh criticism from both the Likud and the Left, Naftali Bennett, head of the Bayit Hayehudi party, went on offensive against the attacks on his statements regarding his personal inability to expel Jews from their homes in the case of another “Disengagement”.

Bennett said that he is not calling on soldiers to refuse orders, which he also clearly said in his original remarks.

He said that, as a soldier, he personally would be incapable of fulfilling an order to uproot a Jewish settlement or an Arab village.

On Channel 10, Bennett then went on the offensive against the Likud and Netanyahu.

Bennett said that the fact that the question even arises on election eve as to whether or not the Likud would have soldiers, once again, expel Jews from their homes, says it all. And the Likud would do it, he claims.

In response to Netanyahu’s statement, “Whoever refuses orders to remove settlements will not be in my government,” Bennett responded, “Mr. Prime Minister, is the reason you said that because you are planning on removing settlements in your next administration?”

A number of Likud ministers and MKs have attacked Bennett, but with the exception of Moshe Feiglin, none have yet said they would not expel Jews if given the order to do so.

The Likud sees HaBayit HaYehudi as their biggest threat in the upcoming elections.

It’s easy to see why.

  1. It's OPPAH BIBI STYLE!

    Oh yes he will! And with the help of the Jewish home, just like in Yamit 1982 with Hammer working with Sharon for the "peaceful clearing of Yamit", and just like 2005 with Orlev, who sat in the government until the last moment and, WITH BIBI, made it possible to deport the Jews from the Gaza Strip.

    EVERY Likud leader has deported Jews from their homes and betrayed the electorate of the Land of Israel Faithful and the National Camp.

    Whoever thinks that Bibi will hesitate in deporting Jews is deluded.

    The Likud has ALWAYS betrayed its electorate:
    in 1977 they voted Begin and they got Dayan's line at Camp David 1979.
    in 1981 they voted Begin and got Peres' line at Yamit 1982.
    in 1996 they voted Bibi and got Peres line in Hebron 1997.
    in 2000 they voted Sharon and got Barak's line in 2002.
    in 2003 they voted Sharon and got Mitzna's line in 2005.
    in 2009 they voted Bibi and IMMEDIATELY got Barak.

    As Einstein said: "Mental illness is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results".

  2. Hadar, you have to accept the fact that since 1967 when America came into Israeli politics, the American Administration has always supported the leftists. No matter who is PM of Israel, the American Administration is calling the shots and these "shots" also pertain to when/if/how the IDF shoots them. Sorry to break your bubble, but Israel is not a sovereign country but very much controlled by the USA (United States of Arabs).

  3. You break no one's bubble, brother… I know more than you think, and among the things I know there's also the FACT that the Oslo disaster (whic was also ILLEGAL as per Israeli law) was started by Peres and his henchmen in the Foreign Ministry BEFORE the US (and the Israeli Government) knew anything…and Monica's trick was VERY upset about it… BTW: the US came into Israeli politics WAY BEFORE 1967…

  4. More power to you Mr, Bennett as you stand for Israel citizens and they shouldn't be called settlers they R Israeli citizens I love Bibi and I hope and pray that no such order to be given once again to our soldiers to remove Israeli citizens from their home The PA. do not want peace or state of their own and that old story should be dead and buried for all the Jews I Israel.
    Go-d be with you all!
