The National Union (HaIchud HaLeumi) released the following short statement following President Barack Obama’s reelection: “Obama’s re-election gives a tailwind boost to the Israeli left-wing. The upcoming Israeli elections will be about building a national coalition that will help Netanyahu withstand the pressures put upon him. A Jewish coalition that is strengthened by the new knitted-kipa merger of the National Union and the Bayit HaYehudi parties, versus a weak, left-wing coalition with Lapid and Deri.”
