Israel’s “Young Turks” have created a new political party, and this week received an important new ally.
Caroline Glick, a long-time writer for the Jerusalem Post (and, of late, Breitbart), is running for a Knesset seat for the new Hayemin Hehadash (The New Right) Party. The party was founded by rising stars Naftali Bennett, Education Minister, and Ayelet Shaked, Israel’s Justice Minister. For what it’s worth, they are the new breed; both look like they could carry lead roles in a James Bond movie.
The pair have left Bayit Yehudi, in order to gain more seats in the Knesset.
For her part, Glick is a media savvy Zionist firebrand.
“’Caroline is a relentless Zionist fighter,’ party co-chairman Naftali Bennett said. ‘With her, we are building today the dream team of the Israeli Right in order to expand the right-wing block – so that Israel can be triumphant again.’
