Top religious Zionist rabbi assures Bennett 'we're behind you'

Rabbi Chaim Druckman, one of the leaders of the religious Zionism movement, expressed support for Habayit Hayehudi Chairman Naftali Bennett in the confrontation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over settlements being given to a potential Palestinian state.

 

"Do not be afraid and do not be discouraged," he said quoting a verse from Deuteronomy. "All of those who are faithful to the Land of Israel are standing behind you."

 

Druckman said the movement "was blessed with a central minister in the government that stands guards and fights in all his power in order to prevent ridiculous plans such as these." (Kobi Nahshoni)
