A week after the Supreme Court overturned a Central Election Committee decision and clearing the way for Baruch Marzel to run on the Yachad party ticket, Marzel has launched his campaign.
He is already being criticized by the media for his ‘radical’ views as he tells the media during his election campaign he does plan to “create a commotion among the Arabs”.
For Marzel and the Yachad party, the polls are optimistic and Baruch Marzel, who was a Knesset aide in the past, will likely serve as a Member of Knesset in the 20th Knesset.
Walla News reports that in a conversation with him, he explains his main goal is to compromise his ideological rivalry, the left-wing. He explains that Meretz leader Zahava Gal-On wants to hang over areas of Eretz Yisrael to the enemy and he feels under law her intentions are tantamount to treason.
“When Hanin Zoabi seems me her smile goes down” he proudly adds, promising to continue activities that will make Zoabi frown.
He is also critical of the right-wing, explaining Bayit Yehudi party leader Naftali Bennett is also willing to give away portions of Eretz Yisrael. “For me, it’s all of Eretz Yisrael. Jenin is no less holy than Tel Aviv and Shechem not less than Tiveria” he explains.

Eretz Yisrael ought to be important but secondary to Torah of Yisrael and nation of Yisrael
But potential yachad voters will see that ( being an anti-Arab provacateur) as a compliment. The accusers get credit with their base, and the “victim” of the accusation is enhanced with his base.
In America, the Democrats are trying to get Republican votes, and vice versa. In Israel one appeals solely to your base and to people close to you in ideology.
#1 who said its not to Baruch and his party? Rather they are accenting “Eretz YISROEL” while other frum parties minimize or delete it from the Agenda!!
One real compliment to Marzel is he “walks the walk & talks the talk”. No surprises, no post election change of mind. You know where he stands, agree or disagree, he is true to his values & words. Not readily found in all parties!
