Israel's Secular Suckers Rise Again

Yesh Atid should be the more powerful party in its alliance with Habayit Hayehudi, but as usual, religious Zionists are bending their secular counterparts to their will.

A new party was recently born in Israel – "the Future Home." The unofficial alliance of Yesh Atid ("There is a Future") headed by MK Yair Lapid (19 Knesset seats) and Habayit Hayehudi ("the Jewish Home") headed by MK Naftali Bennett (12 Knesset seats) is a significant political force, which would have seemed absurd in the run-up to the election.
