The anti-LGBT party Noam recommends that Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu head the next government.

Noam ran on a joint list with the far-right Religious Zionism and Otzma Yehudit parties and will have one MK, Avi Maoz, in the next Knesset.

Herzog takes the opportunity to chide Noam for its anti-LGBT platform.

“Love of Israel, to my mind, belongs to everyone who lives in this land. There has been concern about things you have said about the LGBT community,” Herzog says, according to a statement from his office.

“All human beings were created in God’s image and we must respect everyone. We have only one State of Israel. That pertains also to your party,” he says.
