That same evening, Bennett gave a talk in an event sponsored by Beer Sheba University, to a packed house. They ran out of tickets well before the event started – and the vast majority of the audience were secular young adults.

  1. Did you see the headline article at JPost claiming that Livni & Netanyahu were discussing Livni's becoming FM in the next gov't. Do you think that's credible?
    I wasn't going to vote for Likud anyway, my choice is Bennett, but the prospect of Livni in gov't. is nauseating.

  2. Excellent article…I agree that Bennett has to speak to the people directly, going over the heads of the media. Politicians give far to much power to an overwhelmingly leftist media corp by allowing the media to filter, color, and twist their message. Also the young people you describe as secular – are they be better described as traditional? As Israel generally (an the young especially) begin to see more and more the failures and emptiness of leftist ideology are the secular becoming more traditional (if not fully observant) and more Zionism-minded?

  3. Yori Yanover says:

    I think Netanyahu is focusing on Iran, and he doesn't want to be stuck without US support there. So a coalition with the right is out. He also wants to retrieve Housing from Shas, which takes them out of consideration as well. That's why the "near" left is a viable option, and Livni would pose fewer economic problems than Labor — assuming she could manage Amir Peretz.

  4. Yori Yanover says:

    The Technion and Beer Sheva U. are not the bastion of "traditional" Israelis. I mean, I don't think they hate their tradition, but Bennett is offering them agenda items — like cutting the defense budget by lowering the retirement age of career officers and NCOs — that appeal to them, regardless of their faith.

  5. Thanks for the reply. You confirm what I thought (and feared) & only last night, argued with friends who are Likud but not happy at my analysis which they could not refute. Your articles, by the way, are much much better than the dreck in the JPost.

    Movin' on up….to the East Side…
