Participating in the launch event – held on zoom – were Members of Knesset on behalf of the party, and more than 50 team heads and local campaign coordinators from Eilat in the south, to Metula in the north.

Campaign coordinators included mayors and council members, including the Mayor of Ramat Gan and the party’s election chief, Carmel Shama HaCohen; the Mayor of Eilat and party candidate, Meir Yitzhak Halevi; the Mayor of Rishon Lezion, Raz Kinstlich; the Mayor of Metula, David Azulai; and Mayor of Hadera, Zvika Gendelman.

Party chairman, Gideon Saar told the participants: “The future of the country is dependent on our success. Just as in the past, the future of Israel has hung in the balance over one fight or another, today, the future of the country is dependent upon our success in the upcoming elections, because if we don’t succeed, the State of Israel will continue to sink into the unravelling of its social fabric, out of the hatred between the different groups in the population, and this is something more dangerous than each of the external threats – which I know all too well.

Throughout my life, I have served in the Security Cabinet, on the Defence and Foreign Affairs Committee, and in the Institute for National Security Studies, and I say to you today, the greatest challenge before us, is to rehabilitate the country and to reunite Israeli society before the destructive processes that have taken hold over the last few years, accelerate to speeds which can no longer be stopped. We all saw what happened in the greatest democracy in the world a few days ago, something we could not have imagined in our nightmares, and it stands as an example of where extremism leads, where polarization leads within society, and where the preparedness to break the democratic rules leads.”
