The head of the Jewish Home party, Israel’s Education Minister Naftali Bennett, has ranked the highest of any government minister in terms of his satisfaction rating in an annual poll on the Knesset Channel in Israel. The poll, which rates the performance of all current Knesset members and government ministers, ranked his deputy, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, in third place.
While American liberal Jews continue to overwhelmingly support the Democratic Party, Israelis stand with the right-wing Jewish home party – and support the nationalistic government of Benjamin Netanyahu. Bennett has reduced the number of students in a classroom, and Shaked has vowed to stop foreign funding to the radical left who boycott Israel. Both are strong proponents of the Jewish right to live throughout the land of Israel and that Israel has rightful possession of Judea and Samaria.
Bennett is a proud Jew – one who stands up and tells the truth in an unapologetic manner and in good English. As he told The Washington Post, “We will never give away land to the Palestinians.” Naftali Bennett is clear-headed, well-spoken, and determined to better the place of Israel in the world.
Bennett is part of the new Israeli leadership which understands and cares about the Public Relations image of Israel. He founded “Israel Sheli” (My Israel), a network of pro-Israel activists committed to spreading Zionism online.
This is Israeli democracy – the people of Israel supporting a strong, sane leadership.
Forty-three-year-old Naftali Bennett served in the elite Sayeret Matkal commando unit of the Israel Defense Forces, and at the age of 27 founded a company which he sold 6 years later for $145 million. He lived in New York City for a few years building the company, until he returned to Israel where he fought in the Second Lebanon War and then served as Netanyahu’s Chief of Staff. This man is independently wealthy, self-made and driven by Zionism.
Naftali Bennett has wisely asked: “What does the world want from us; what do the Arab nations want from this small Jewish State?” He opposes the creation of a Palestinian state, noting, "I will do everything in my power to make sure they never get a state." He supports free enterprise, and in so many ways is the future of Israel.
While America is capitulating to terror with a deal with Iran, Israelis stand strong and support a strong Israel. As Zionist leader Ze’ev Jabotinsky said in 1937 Jewish values are “not an archaic object of our history, but an active pulsating power which exists today and will continue for all eternity.”
