Officials in the “Change bloc” seeking to replace Netanyahu are holding out hope that Yamina chairman Naftali Bennett has not completely closed the door on a government with the “Change bloc,” pointing to “brave” comments made by Ra’am chair Mansour Abbas in recent days, condemning Arab mob-violence on Jews. The Islamist party also visited a synagogue in Lod that was torched by a mob and lambasted the act.
