More than 1,000 religious Zionist youths have signed a petition
calling on all religious Zionist MKs to join in a unified list for
the next Knesset.
The petition was initiated by the young leadership of the National
Union and has been circulating in high school yeshivas and ulpanas
over the last two weeks.
"The religious Zionist public has been a partner in the state of
Israel since its inception," the petition reads. "It serves in the
army en masse, makes up a meaningful part of the IDF´s command
backbone, is active in all professions and fields, has established a
high quality educational system and has had many achievements in all
fields of life in the country."
"In order to bring Zionism back into the center of the political
ring, in order to once again be influential and meaningful in Israeli
society, in order to show the Israeli public that there is a Jewish
alternative, we call on the parties – unite!"

controversies, we call on everyone to unite under one list – ´The
National Union / Jewish Home.´" (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 05/06/12)
