Smotrich begs PM, Sa’ar to join hands, not ‘give keys to our future to enemies’

The head of the far-right Religious Zionism party Bezalel Smotrich publicly urges Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and New Hope party leader Gideon Sa’ar to settle their differences and form a government together.

“Let’s keep our future in our hands, let’s learn us Jews to get along, so that we don’t give the keys to our future to our enemies who rise up on us with sweet words,” he says, in an apparent reference to the Islamist Ra’am party, whose members he has accused of being terror supporters.

“I promise in advance to support any arrangement you reach between you. It’s in your hands. Save Israel and don’t miss this moment.”

Sa’ar has repeatedly vowed, both before and after the election, not to cooperate with Netanyahu.
