Click here for the finalized list of the Jewish Home Party candidates for Knesseth while I sit here, and experience an "I told you so" moment. I shouldn't say finalized, though, as I am still hoping for a split back into NRP and National Union.
MK Uri Ariel, chair of the Tequmah Party was placed in the 3rd slot on the list. The second member of Tequmah, MK Tzvi Hendel was placed way down in slot no. 12.
Rabbi MK Benny Elon, chair of the Moledet Party was placed in the 17th slot. I mean, c'mon. How do you get away with putting the first and only member of a supposedly equal faction down in the 17th slot?
You don't. Moledet has joined up with HaTikvah, and Rabbi Elon is retiring from politics.
How long will it take for Tequmah to pick up and leave as well? We could find out as early as this Saturday night, when Tequmah rabbis meet to decide the faction's future with, or without, the Jewish Home Party.
The Israel National News Hebrew weekly b'Sheva described the "Jewish Home" Party list best with this week's headline.
