Israel Hayom: Religious Zionist Party leader Betzalel Smotrich on Wednesday said he would not support a coalition that includes the Arab Ra’am party.

“Will I not in that day,” says the Lord,
“Even destroy the wise men from Edom,
And understanding from the mountains of Esau?” Obadiah 1:9

“I will not allow for a right-wing government to form based on the support of Ra’am leader Mansour Abbas … regardless of whether he endorses it from the outside, the inside or by abstaining. Not happening. Not on my watch,” Smotrich wrote on Facebook.

… regardless of whether he endorses it from the outside, the inside or by abstaining. Not happening. Not on my watch,” Smotrich wrote on Facebook.

“Proponents of terrorism who deny Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state are not legitimate partners in any government.”

He urged Yamina leader Naftali Bennett and New Hope chief Gideon Sa’ar to enter coalition talks with Likud “so that we can form a solid right-wing government.”
