Bennett says there is a relentless “machine” working to delegitimize the coalition, particularly through its inclusion of the Arab party Ra’am.
He rages at what he sees as Likud’s hypocrisy, as it too courted Ra’am after the election to try to get it to support its own proposed coalition.
“I was there in the closed rooms” where a Netanyahu government-backed by Ra’am was discussed, he says. “That was the only deal [on the table].”
Bennett says “chaos is [Netanyahu’s] business model… without the people being divided, Bibi doesn’t exist. When there’s unity, there’s no Bibi.”
