Battle in Bayit Yehudi heats up

Two days after Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman became defense minister, the Bayit Yehudi party, which did not obtain a top portfolio, erupted in internal chaos Wednesday.

Tensions have risen in the party after its leader, Naftali Bennett, was not appointed foreign minister despite having eight seats, compared to Yisrael Beytenu’s six.

Bennett and his number two, Construction Minister Uri Ariel, have fought behind the scenes for years, but their fight became public Wednesday.
