Ben Gvir: Coalition based on Ra’am backing would be ‘the end of the right’

The far-right leader of the Otzma Yehudit party says a right-wing coalition that bases itself on support from Arab party Ra’am “will be the end of the right.”

Itamar Ben Gvir tells Ynet Ra’am leader Mansour Abbas “is a supporter of Hamas and terrorism.”

Abbas has said he could back a government led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the election. Some polls have shown Netanyahu will not be able to form a coalition after the election without him.
