Jewish Home faction chairman MK Uri Orbach held a news conference
with Naftali Bennett at the Knesset Tuesday and announced he is
endorsing Bennett to head the Jewish Home / National Religious Party.
Bennett and Orbach will be running on the same ticket in the Jewish
Home / NRP´s primaries.
An officer in the elite Sayeret Matkal unit and a very successful hi-
tech entrepreneur, Bennett announced he would form his own party but
changed his mind when the early elections were called off and said he
would run within the Jewish Home.
"Zionism needs to be placed back where it rightfully belongs by
turning into a medium-sized party," Orbach said. "We need Naftali and
people like him in politics. Naftali is the right person to head the
Jewish Home / New NRP. Naftali knows where to go. It is time to lead
in all the issues that are on the State of Israel´s agenda."
"Together with other people, we can put the party back in its natural
place. I call upon people to join the party," he said.
Bennett said: "We are headed toward a revolution. The alternative is
to go for a revolution, and turn for a home for the religious [only]
to a party for all Israelis, religious, secular and women."
"We need to turn to all of Israel. There is only one place in which
we are sectorial – in politics. The public is no longer there and it
is going toward the Likud."
"We will unite with the National Union and be one party, non-
sectorial, that will influence society and the agenda in Israel."
