The man with the knitted kippa – and many hats
By GIL HOFFMAN, LAHAV HARKOV
Naftali Bennett is determined to lower the cost of living, encourage haredi employment and fight assimilation around the world.
There have been reports of fights between you and Lapid on key issues. Has your bond disappointed you in any way?
Yair and I disagree on a lot: The Land of Israel, negotiations with the Palestinians, religion and state, etc. But there is trust between us. Our word is our bond. There will be disappointment. Neither of us will get all of what we want, but meanwhile we are changing Israeli society. We are making people realize we have to compromise to get along here. The country is not all about fighting anymore.
