Bennett defends partnership with Ra’am; says Likud hid ties with Islamist party

Bennett continues to rail against the opposition, in a fiery speech in the plenum.

He accuses Likud of approaching the Islamist Ra’am “like thieves in the night” when Benjamin Netanyahu was holding coalition negotiations. Ra’am eventually joined the Bennett-led government.

“They went like thieves in the night to meet Mansour,” he says, referring to Ra’am’s leader Mansour Abbas, “or in colloquial terms: You didn’t do it like a man.”

His comments come after Netanyahu criticizes him for acceding to Ra’am’s demands in exchange for parliamentary cooperation.
