Right-wing MK Bezalel Smotrich on Wednesday attacked Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and other coalition members and said they should be banned from entering a synagogue. “Whoever is a partner in this government should not be allowed to enter a synagogue. That’s the most legitimate thing in the world to do,” the Religious Zionist Party lawmaker said during an interview with Kan Bet radio. Smotrich added that “whoever lied, cheated, stole votes, joined the far-Left that harms anything holy, whoever sold our country to the Islamic Movement and is now going to do the same with the terrorists in the Joint List Party – and is definitely not worthy. I think people who turned their backs on the public should feel unwanted in public.”

In response, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett slammed Smotrich and pondered: “will a Jew boycott another Jew in a synagogue? That is what destroyed our nation 2,000 years ago,” in mentioning the destruction of the Second Temple. “We have forgotten that we have a nation, a good nation, a positive nation, a nation that volunteers and assists,” Bennett said.
