Israel’s Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has responded to an inflammatory graphic about him that was distributed on social media recently.


It condemns him personally for the deaths of 11 Israelis over the past few weeks in Arab terrorist attacks carried out in various cities around Israel.

The image (shown above), described by some as defamatory, is a composite of the pictures of the 11 murdered Israelis shown over a Jewish memorial candle used by people in mourning. The caption reads: “They will never vote.”

In a Twitter post alluding to the religious Zionist people he blames for creating the image, Bennet said of its author, “Whoever posted this thing, whoever dances like this on blood, does not represent either Zionism or religious [people].”

Bennett explained that he had not yet responded to the “shocking post” because he was too busy over the past few days dealing with Israel’s security matters to do so.

“I was involved in security matters,” he said, “in the dozens of actions we are taking to stop the wave of terrorism, the thwarting of the terrorist attack by the terrorist cell in Jenin and other burning issues.”

The Prime Minister referred to what he called the “silent majority” of the Israeli public who he said knows, “very well the values of religious Zionism on which I grew up which are statehood and love of state, significant military service and contribution to the state… unity of the people at all costs and stubborn resistance to terrorism and not burning hatred during a campaign.”

Bennett cited his experience as an IDF combat Veteran who fought in combat in the Second Lebanon War in 2006 saying, “Whoever spent years in night ambushes with people from all parts of the nation, whoever saw friends wounded in battle, anyone who remembers the heartbeat on the way to action, the smell of the tank or diesel in weapon cleaning, could not publish such a post.”

Bennett concluded by declaring that, “The people of Israel will defeat their enemies – together.”
