Religious Zionism party spiritual leader Rabbi Chaim Druckman appears to stop short of a flat rejection of a right-wing, Netanyahu-led government reliant on the outside support of the Islamist party Ra’am.

“There is no need for a government reliant on Ra’am. This is a hypothetical thing,” he tells Army Radio. “It is necessary for there to be a stable government. This is what the people want and the will of the people must be respected and we certainly should not return back to the polls.”
