Emotions running high as Israeli elections approach
The electoral campaign goes into overdrive next week when the parties launch their TV commercials. Meanwhile, Habayit Hayehudi's Naftali Bennett is laughing all the way to the ballot box, but his rivals are suffering.
In the election campaign for the 19th Knesset, the Habayit Hayehudi-National Union ticket is growing at a rate of 1.5 seats a week. It has already doubled its strength compared to the outgoing Knesset. Naftali Bennett, a 40-year-old lad who seems to be hiding most of his party's candidates from the public - and he knows why - has become the hot story of this campaign.
