Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Katz, YaakovUsing his Facebook page to get his message out, former MK Yaakov Katz (Ketzaleh) calls on Bayit Yehudi faction members to convene immediately and vote to oust Naftali Bennett as the party’s leader. Katz cites Bennett’s role in the destruction of yeshivos and the about-to-occur destruction of yishuvim.

Katz refers to the advancing pace of talks between Israel and the PA (Palestinian Authority) as Justice Minister Livni is working to give the PA a deal it cannot refuse in the name of reaching an agreement. Katz warns that in eight months yishuvim will chas v’sholom will be destroyed and the time to act is now.

“Just like Bennett knew about the cut in yeshivos funding and silenced his faction members and heads of his mosdos so nothing would occur, Bennett is now hiding this reality from his colleagues. Bennett is using the same tactics to hide the danger facing the yishuvim”.

Katz details that the Torah World has lost 66% of its funding and Bennett is silent. He urges Bayit Yehudi to act to remove Bennett as party leader while there is time to act. “It is time for Bayit Yehudi to act to correct the injustice, to turn to its natural partner, the chareidi parties in Knesset, those he should have entered the coalition with instead of Lapid.”

  1. Katzela should have been voted as head of BY, except there is an admiration for the unknown (Bennet), assuming that he will garnish more votes & excitement (which he did).

  2. Wow, even some of the Daati are waking up and smelling the coffee and realizing what a rotten apple they have in the house with Bennett.

  3. Note the word “former” prceeding MK.

    Bayit Yehudi has itgs priorities, and found an ally in their leading priority, which is preventing the Hareidi “takeover” of Israeli society (or at least, of the Shomer Shabbos world). For this they are giving up much funding for Dati Leumi institutions, restrictions or abolition of religious zionist army units, and will give up many if not most of the “settlement enterprise.” The modern Orthodox have become very comfortable with their compromises, and are fighting for legitimacy against the Hareidi onslaught.

    Ketzaleh offered a different view, and the Dati Leumi tsibbur rejected himl.

  4. I don’t disagree with Katzeleh on Bennett except for one issue, The Yishuvim are in even more danger with the Chareidi parties. Remember Oslo?
