Naftali Bennett Disconnected from Religious-Zionist Electorate

Naftali Bennett earned a whopping 12 mandates in the last Knesset elections. This didn’t surprise anyone. He led a populist campaign based on the Israeli version of “You’re my bro.” He talked about unity, unity and more unity as if unity was everything and I gotta hand it to him: unity isn’t the “most important” think for Israel–it’s the only thing that really matters. But Bennett and his Jewish Home party have proven far from equal to the task of bringing unity to Israel.
