Breaking: Dani Dayan to join Bayit Yehudi

Naftali Bennett gathered a press conference today to announce that Dani Dayan, the former head of the Yesha council (the umbrella group that represents all the municipalities in the territories) will be joining the Bayit Yehudi list.

Some consider this announcement somewhat surprising since Dayan has been associated with Likud in the past and has personally clashed multiple times with Bennett about various issues.

Bennett announced “The Bayit Yehudi is undergoing a period of growth and we are pleased that multiple candidates have recently decided to join our party. The party will be a home to all: religious, traditional and secular Israelis, all who love the land of Israel and accept the values of Religious Zionism.”
