Naftali Bennett received repeated applause from the Israeli audience at the Herzlia Conference when he spoke about releasing terrorists. He also said that the new Fatah-Hamas alliance is the end of the Oslo Accord. Anyone who runs away from terror is pursued by terror. His sovereignty program will create a new reality. Can anyone say that Gush Etzion is occupied. How can a people be an occupier in his own land? The world won't like it? The world will get used to it as they did when Menachem Begin annexed the Golan Heights.

The same self-hating Israeli establishment which so strongly condemns the Jewish youth of Tag Mechir (Price Tag) for defending themselves, almost never bothers to condemn the Nazi anti-Semitism of Arab Muslims who spray paint swastikas on the graves of leading Jewish rabbis. The anti-Semitic Israeli news media hysterically attacks Tag Mechir Jewish youth for retaliating against Arab terrorist mass murder. Israeli political opportunists like Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Jewish Home party leader Naftali Bennett call Tag Mechir youth "Jewish terrorists" for spray painting slogans and slashing car tires of Israel's sworn enemies. But the voices of these evil "journalists" and politicians are strangely silent when Arab Muslims carry out acts of Nazi hatred.

Check out the latest episode of my CBN News show "The Watchman," featuring my interview with Caroline Glick about her new book, "The Israeli Solution," plus my sitdown with Israel's Minister of the Economy, Naftali Bennett (much more to come from the Bennett interview on the 700 Club show very soon):
Israel Hayom is Pravda, mouthpiece of the prime minister,”-- Naftali Bennett. Proportional representation
Interesting to see Naftali Bennett challenge Adelson and Bibi's mouthpiece Israel Hayom, who he compared to Pravda.
Naftali Bennett says Israel Hayom is "the mouthpiece of one man – the prime minister." Occasionally, he stumbles upon the truth.
that include two people who are non-Jews. One person who is a left wing Zionist... Yes I may be closer to Naftali Bennett but
Naftali Bennett is a deluded individual. Watching Fareed Zakaria interview him is giving me anxiety.
CNN interview with Israel’s economics minister Naftali Bennett:
The Twentieth Century thesis is anti-Semitism on an industrial scale, along with scapegoating Jews for both capitalism and Soviet-style communism. But, thank God, the 20th C. is over. The two competing contemporary antitheses are the territorial nationalism of Naftali Bennett and the settler movement that swears to never give back even a bit of Judea and Shomron, versus the more secular minded insistence of Yair Lapid - יאיר לפיד that the Haredim do their fair share of the heavy lifting by submitting to either military service or at the very least national service of some sort. This Sunday there will be a demonstration/protest by the Haredi in the heart of capitalism, Wall St./the Financial District, of all places. There will also be a counter-demonstration/protest by religious Jews who recognize there is much wrong with haredi leadership, decision making and prioritization. It seems to me that the physical expression of this cultural battle in the ongoing metaphysical war ought be represented ...
Israel’s Huge Bubble of Denial By Jonathan Cook February 27, 2014 The 24-hour visit by German chancellor Angela Merkel to Israel this week came as relations between the two countries hit rock bottom. According to a report in Der Spiegel magazine last week, Merkel and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have been drawn into shouting matches when discussing by phone the faltering peace process. Despite their smiles to the cameras during the visit, tension behind the scenes has been heightened by an diplomatic bust-up earlier this month when Martin Schulz, the president of the European parliament and himself German, gave a speech to the Israeli parliament. In unprecedented scenes, a group of Israeli legislators heckled Schulz, calling him a “liar”, and then staged a walk-out, led by the economics minister Naftali Bennett. Rather than apologising, Netanyahu intervened to lambast the European leader for being misinformed. Schulz, who, like Merkel, is considered a close friend of Israel, used his sp ...

Check out the profile on Minister Bennett below:.
Israeli foreign minister shifts to center A European ambassador in Israel last week told a senior Israeli politician that his country is following with wonder the recent moderate declarations of Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman. The ambassador wished to hear from the politician, who knows Liberman well, how to interpret the change that came over the foreign minister since he was acquitted of charges of fraud and breach of trust and returned to the government. This conversation took place prior to Liberman's speech before the members of the Commercial & Industrial Business Club on Feb. 7 in Tel Aviv, in which he defended US Secretary of State John Kerry from attacks by politicians of the Israeli right. The warm embrace he sent to Kerry, and the declaration that "When there's conflict between the unity of the people and the unity of the land, the unity of the people is more important," surprised the Americans and earned Liberman, at least temporarily, the designation of responsible adult. The barb he direc ...

In The News / Source / Haaretz When squeezed, both Netanyahu and Abbas will accept Kerry’s plan Netanyahu and Abbas have not even met once during John Kerry’s marathon peace planning – yet the forces pushing both leaders to accept will be stronger than those holding them back. The moment of truth has almost arrived. After endless visits, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will soon present the interim American framework to both sides. Although Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas have repeatedly criticized each other for their domestic audiences, they will both reluctantly support the American initiative because their political fortunes and legacies demand such action. Netanyahu is a seasoned politician who has mastered the ability to remain in power. He is Israel’s second longest-serving prime minister and has won three elections. Ministers Yair Lapid and Tzipi Livni, chairpersons of parties together accounting for 25 seats in Netanyahu’s coalition, have vow ...

ORTHODOX LEADERS IN NORTH AMERICA AND ISRAEL SUPPORT WOMEN'S PRAYER IN THE EZRAT NASHIM AT KOTEL Leading Orthodox men and women, including rabbis and communal leaders, have signed a letter in support of preserving women’s customary group prayer in the Ezrat Nashim (women’s section) of the Kotel. The letter, sent to both Economy Minister Naftali Bennett and Cabinet Secretary Avichal Mandelblit, endorses the Original Women of the Wall’s (O-WOW) right and commitment to continuing women’s group prayer which has been customary at the Kotel for 25 of the 46 years of renewed Jewish presence at the Kotel. There are 23 signatures and more are arriving daily. O-WOW calls upon the Israeli government to uphold the rule of law and enforce the court rulings that have validated women's religious rights in the Ezrat Nashim of the Kotel.

Economy Minister Naftali Bennett has accused the United States of making mistakes in regional diplomatic efforts that have lead to threats on Israeli security. The Bayit Yehudi leader told Israel Radio on Thursday that "wrong decisions" made by Washington during the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian peace process have partially lead to the deluge of recent missile attacks from Gaza on southern Israel.
Hareidim Protest Yeshiva Funding Freeze: 'We're Ready for War' Thousands of hareidim protested Thursday at the entrance to Jerusalem and in Bnei Brak over the sudden freezing of funding for all yeshivas, which was ordered retroactively by Finance Minister Yair Lapid on Wednesday. Lapid's decision to cut funding came following a Supreme Court ruling Tuesday, stating that the government should stop funding yeshivas with 18-20 year-old students who received draft calls and did not enlist. The ruling came despite Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon's orders to defer such steps until new laws on the issue are passed in the coming weeks. The protests Thursday turned violent in the clashes between hareidim and police, as one officer's weapon was stolen, and mounted police were called in to break up demonstrators. Four protesters were arrested in the course of events. Rabbi David Zicherman, a source close to Lithuanian-hareidi leader Rabbi Shmuel Auerbach, was among the organizers of the protest. During the confrontat ...

Israel: A State Divided? 12:30PM EST 2/3/2014 Joel C. Rosenberg The very fact that Israeli leaders on the center-right of the political spectrum are getting so anxious, even angry, strongly suggests two rumors are true: The Obama administration and the Europeans are putting enormous pressure on the Netanyahu government behind the scenes to say yes to an American-crafted peace plan; and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is seriously contemplating agreeing to deeply painful and enormously controversial concessions, possibly even dividing Jerusalem and rolling Israel back to her pre-1967 borders. Many analysts have felt for the past year that Secretary Kerry’s frenetic efforts to jump-start the Israeli-Palestinian peace process were going nowhere and doomed to failure. Now there is rapidly growing evidence that Kerry has driven the two parties into the corner and that he appears to be putting the most pressure on the Israeli side to make the deepest concessions. Here’s what we know so far: In his address ...

Brief cabinet crisis averted by pro-settlement minister’s apology for criticizing Netanyahu [As we watch escatological events unfold, we watch Israel, God's Timepiece.] DEBKAfile Special Report January 29, 2014, 9:03 PM (IST) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Wednesday, Jan. 29, demanded Naftali Bennett, the pro-settlement Jewish Home party leader and Minister of Industry and Trade apologize or be sacked, for brusquely criticizing his proposal to leave Jewish settlements in a future Palestinian state. The minister apologized without delay, regretting that “his concern for Israel’s future and security” was taken as a personal attack on the prime minister, whose leadership in difficult circumstances he respected. But he didn’t climb down. It was his duty, the minister stressed, to voice his belief that abandoning Israel citizens to Palestinian sovereignty was a dangerous notion that must be dropped. debkafile: A cabinet crisis has been averted for now over the concessions urged on the prime minist ...

Dear Benjamin Netanyahu - בנימין נתניהו, just because the truth hurts, does not mean you have any right to censor Naftali Bennett. It's funny how you can go out and demonize Iran at the UN without a single solid piece of evidence and yet you will attack one of the only MKs who is actually serving the needs of the people who voted him in to begin with. As a person who supported you and voted for you in the past, I am absolutely outraged at your behavior. This is a country and you are the PM, not the Godfather of some Knesset mafia! Why don't you go off and enjoy your 20,000 shekel ice cream with your corrupt tax-haven money and let people who were actually voted in take control take over from here.

Economics Minister and Bayit Yehudi party head Naftali Bennett told the Washington Post Friday that Israel “will not allow itself to be threatened by a maniacal regime that holds nuclear weapons,” in response to a question about the Iranian threat. “I think what matters are not the words but the centrifuges. We have to be very cognizant of whether Iran continues to accelerate the pace of uranium enrichment. Over the past year, they’ve tripled the pace,” he noted. Bennett told the Post's Lally Weymouth that while he highly respects Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, the two also have “profound disagreements.” “Netanyahu supports — and he truly does support — building a Palestinian state within Israel,” Bennett said. He explained his opposition to the idea: “What we’ve learned over the past 20 years is that each time we gave up land of ours, within a very short time frame, terrorists initiated severe attacks from that land and killed thousands of Israelis. “People don’t realize ...
Injecting a 'terror state' into the heart of Israel is 'national suicide,' Habayit Hayehudi chairman Naftali Bennett tells The Washington Post.
19/06/2013 John Lyons from the Australian GET REAL ON PALESTINE, CLINTON TELLS ISRAEL FORMER U.S. president Bill Clinton says Israel has no alternative for its longer-term welfare than agreeing to a Palestinian state because of sheer demographics”. “The question (to) confront is: is it really OK with you if Israel has people in its territory that will never be allowed to vote?” he told Israelis yesterday at a function to celebrate the 90th birthday of President Shimon Peres. “If so, can you say with a straight face that this is a democracy? If you let them vote, can you live with not being a Jewish state? The comments came as an influential Israeli politician said any two-state solution was dead. Naftali Bennett, the Minister for the economy, said Israel should annex the majority of the West Bank and not allow a Palestinian state. “The idea a Palestinian state will be formed in the state of Israel has come to a dead end,”he said. “Never was so much time invested in something so pointless.

by Gil Ronen A Knesset Channel poll indicates that if elections were held today, Labor would receive 6 more seats than it currently holds, rising from 15 seats to 21. Likud / Yisrael Beytenu would shrink from its current 31 seats to an abysmal 26 seats. Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid would sink, too, from 19 to 17 seats, while Naftali Bennett's Bayit Yehudi would rise slightly, from 12 to 13 seats. Shas dips from 11 to 10 seats, and UTJ loses one seat as well, going from 7 to 6. Meretz grows two seats stronger, from 6 to 8 seats, whereas Tzipi Livni's Hatnua shrinks from 6 to 4. These results, if they reflect public opinion, should come as a shock to nationalists, since they show Likud and Yisrael Beytenu down to a total of 26 seats from a total of 42 until the last elections (Likud had 27 seats and Yisrael Beytenu 15, in the 19th Knesset). This means that the "right wing and religious bloc," as it was known until the latest elections – which includes Likud, Yisrael Beytenu, Bayit Yehudi, UTJ and Shas – has o ...
The aim of ramped up settlement building in East Jerusalem is clear: as with all settlements on Palestinian land, it changes the facts on the ground (in the words of settler politician Naftali Bennett), and makes the prospect of any clear division or Palestinian ownership very difficult to envisage.
Ashdod union chief: Naftali Bennett is a populist cabinet minister who's feeding the public nonsense. By Avi Bar-Eli and Ora Coren | May.19, 2013 | 11:26 AM |  1   The government is putting together competing plans for how to keep the country’s port operating in the event dockworkers walk off their jobs to protest reforms in the sector. The Transportation Ministry has begun exploring the possibility of bringing to Israel foreign labor to stand in for striking workers and has discussed the idea with various overseas companies. Meanwhile, Economics and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett has raised the idea of bringing in Israel Defense Forces troops to operate the ports. Both ministries are also examining the possibility of opening augmented loading and unloading facilities for container ships at the privatized ports of Eilat and Israel Shipyards. The talk about employing troops is very preliminary, but it signals how big a confrontation may be ahead as the government moves ahead with plans to permit . ...

Israel Adopts Sundays-Off The first vote on new legislation in the 19th Knesset was initiated as a joint effort between Yesh Atid’s Rabbi Dov Lipman, Jewish Home’s Naftali Bennett, and surprisingly, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Easily passing the vote, the Knesset decided that Sundays would now be an official day off from work. MK Rabbi Lipman said, “I missed having a day off like in America, so I’m proud to have introduced this legislation. Now I’ll be able to go to baseball games like I used to.” Lipman was surprised to learn that MKs don’t actually work on Thursdays, Fridays and of course, Shabbat, thus with Sundays off, his work week dropped down to a mere three days. Also, he discovered that baseball isn’t as popular in Israel as it is in America, so he won’t be going to as many Sunday games as he planned. In order to make up for the lost Sunday hours, two additional hours of work have been added on to the regular Monday through Thursday workday schedule, which means Israelis ...

The Stone Age few weeks ago a military judge, Major Amir Dahan, acquitted four Palestinians of the charge of “attempted murder by throwing stones at vehicles”. He stated that "throwing stones can, under some circumstances, have the character of a lethal offence, carrying the near certainty of a danger to human life - but under other circumstances it might be no more than a prank without the potential of serious damage, by a young person who had barely crossed into the age of criminal responsibility". This verdict angered Housing Minister Uri Ariel of the Jewish Home party, who said in the beginning of last week: "This is no way to render judgment in Israel. It is about such things that we daily utter the prayer “O restore our judges, as of old”. We should not tolerate even one stone. We must not forgive even one stone . A stone kills". Later this week, the head of the party joined Ariel. The well known Naftali Bennett, Minister of Economy, made a public call to change the rules of engagement so a ...

As usual, cogent analysis from Bernard Avishai.com Lapid: Doubt The Benefit Of The Doubt Posted: 08 Mar 2013 12:16 AM PST From Open Zion, a feature of The Daily Beast, where I have a regular column. Yair Lapid, the darling-du-jour of Global Israel, is negotiating to enter the government in an ever-tighter alliance with Naftali Bennett, the rightist captain of Greater Israel. Lapid wants, he says, to deal with "equality of burden,"the conscription of Haredim into the army, and keep Haredi parties out of government. Bennett--not one to reject any effort to make the IDF central to Israeli life--is happy to go along. He may well get the Finance Ministry for his troubles. On its face, this alliance is a betrayal of Lapid's voters--Tel Avivans with cosmopolitan attitudes, and fearing international isolation--who hardly expected the settlers' leadership to be Lapid's soul-mates. But let's give Lapid the benefit of the doubt, at least before we yank it back. The problem of "equality of burden" is not simply a mat ...

Heated Emotions as Bennett Tours Mir Yeshiva Bayit Yehudi head visits Israel's largest yeshiva, in a sign he means business regarding hareidi enlistment. Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett visited Mir Yeshiva in Jerusalem Monday morning and was scheduled to visit Hevron Yeshiva later in the day. With over 7,500 single and married students, Mir is the largest yeshiva in Israel and is also believed to be the largest yeshiva in the world. Many of the students are from the United States and Canada, however, and are not eligible for IDF service as they are in Israel temporarily. Some yeshiva students gathered when Bennett approached the yeshiva and hurled abusive language at him. However, most of the people who greeted him were polite, and Bennett appeared steadfast in his message that a reform in laws regarding hareidi enlistment is necessary. After meeting the heads of the yeshiva, Bennett said that "the first thing that everyone must do" is to get to know the hareidim better. "The principles that we see ...

The Myth of the "Start-Up Nation" Those critiquing Naftali Bennett's expansionary political views have been too silent on his economic views. The shrill voice of the deficit-hawks makes it difficult enough to formulate a critique of extreme free-market economics in America let alone a few thousand miles away in Israel, but I think greater attention should be paid nonetheless to those Israeli's pointing out the entanglement of American-exported economic ideas and the territorial injustices. Shlomo Swirsky of the Adva Center has a helpful report on this, "Israel in a Nutshell: A Different Introduction to Israeli Economy and Society." "Hi tech has given Israel the shining image of A Start-Up Nation, to use the title of Dan Senor and Saul Singer's book. Yet hi tech industries and services hardly represent the nation as a whole, as they employ not more than 10% of the Israeli civilian work force. Furthermore, most of them are located in the center of the country, in and around Tel Aviv... For Israelis lucky en ...

My letter in today's Jerusalem Post: Bravo to Yair Lapid for pulling off the biggest coup in Israeli political history. Ditto Naftali Bennett. Clearly, the two of them are drawing the younger generation of thinking voters who have the smarts to show the old guard that their days are numbered. A clean and logical coalition of Binyamin Netanyahu, Lapid and Bennett would allow us to bid good riddance to Kadima, as well as to the utterly unlamentable Tzipi Livni, while making sure the burglars of Shas and UTJ are left out in the cold. Bibi took a trouncing because of his hubris, as well as his stupidity in letting himself be henpecked into destroying his working relationships with quality people. Woe betide us if Mrs. Netanyahu continues to control her husband and we end up with an even nastier version of the status quo ante. J.J. GROSS Jerusalem
I did not vote for BY. This is no secret! However it is clear that the coalition that everyone is waiting for is Bibi/Yair/Naftali! Anyone who has any connection to Bibi please ask why BY has not yet been included in the round of calls in the pre-coalition talks!! If this is because of Sara - it is insane!! It is clear to EVERYONE (except perhaps Shelly Y and Sara N) that the country wants and needs a coalition lead by Bibi, with YA and BY at his side. It is VERY worrying that he is talking to YH and Shas before BY!! The country will not forgive Bibi if personal differences with Bennett get in the way of doing the right thing for the country!!

They are waiting for people who say what they mean and mean what they say. Netanyahu released the last spin into the air a moment before the polling stations opened. Kahlon, Bibi promised, will lower the cost of housing. The plan was obvious. The public believes Kahlon, so maybe it will not think this is a trick but a real revolution in housing prices. But most of the public does not believe anymore. The vast majority of Israelis despise these tricks. Turbulent Mideast Apocalypse tomorrow / Eitan .. ...

Lost in the love fest for former TV celeb Yair Lapid, aka Mr. Change; the fact that one of his closest advisers is veteran sleaze politico Ehud Olmert. On Jan. 13 Haaretz wrote: "Lapid's choice of Olmert as an adviser is puzzling. Why Lapid, who wants to be perceived as a fresh new hope, is seeking the advice of the insider Olmert, especially with the new cloud hanging over his head, is not self-evident."

So Israeli PM Netanyahu retains power , albeit with a narrow margin. After winning an even split of seats in parliament PM is working to form a new ruling coalition. a task made more difficult by the unexpected success of centrist parties. No major policy changes should be expected as they will likely retain its hardline stance on Iran's controversial nuclear program and debate will continue over dormant talks with the Palestinians over the Mideast peace process. Israeli-Arab conflict polarized the voters. Palestinian officials see little hope that a new government will change the Israeli stance... So in this case things don't change they just stay the same!
And current event # 3: Exit polls indicate that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was successful in his reelection bid despite significant parliamentary losses for his conservative Likud party. JERUSALEM – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu emerged the bruised winner of Israel's election on Tuesday, with his hawkish bloc unexpectedly losing ground to resurgent center-left challengers, exit polls showed. Israel media reported Wednesday that with nearly all votes counted, each bloc had 60 of parliament's 120 seats. Commentators said Netanyahu, who called early elections three months ago expecting easy victory, would be tapped to form the next government because the rival camp drew 12 of its 60 seats from Arab parties that traditionally are excluded from coalition building. But his weakened showing in an election he himself called earlier than necessary could complicate the struggle to forge an alliance with a stable majority in parliament. The 63-year-old Israeli leader promised during his election ...
