Ahdut Among All Religious Parties in Israel?
With National Union and Jewish Home agreeing to run together in the next elections, this sparked a new interest in unity among other religious parties. Kikar reported the other day that UTJ is weighing joining forces with Shas. This generated a lot of comments on that post - some were nasty toward one party or the other while some thinking that Mashiah is on his way.
The kicker quote came in a recent Kikar article:
"בסוף, כשכולם מאוחדים יחד נקבל יותר מנדטים".
[Interior Minister Eli] Yishai also related to the initiative that was exposed on Kikar HaShabbat, according to which UTJ and Shas will join together for the next elections. "If they will try to go toward all types of ideologies that will try to harm Haredim and the religious and to sideline the small parties - perhaps something good will happen that all the religious parties will be united: Shas, UTJ, Jewish Home and National Union.
"In the end, when all are united together, we will get more mandates."
Halevai such a day will come! Then we know Mashiah is on his way. I don't know why we need to wait for them to try to harm us - let's do it right now!
