Jewish homophobe says he is not opposed to Arab homophobes backing coalition

Otzma Yehudit’s Itamar Ben Gvir may have beef with relying on the support of the Islamist Ra’am party, but Eldad Rabinovitch, No. 2 on the Noam faction that is also part of Religious Zionism, says he is fine with the ultra-conservative Muslim Brotherhood-linked party having the back of a government that includes his right-wing colleagues.

Kan quotes Rabinovitch saying that “the coalition we will be in will be a coalition of Zionist Jews, including Haredim. If there is support from the outside, we of course won’t oppose it. We will not depend on them.”

At number 11 on the Religious Zionism slate, Rabinovitch has little chance of actually getting into the Knesset.

Both Noam and Ra’am are openly anti-LGBT.
