Former Peace Now Activist to Run with Jewish Home

T. Belman. This is very important. While the left paints Naftali Bennett and Bayit Yehudi as extreme, Roth shows otherwise. Anyone can feel comfortable in this party or when voting for it, if they accept reality and like to build a bridge between religious and secular Jews. Anet Haskia, the Arab woman who is also competing to be on the list, is confirmation that Arabs can also embrace the vision of Israel as a Jewish state.

Dr. Anat Roth, formerly an activist with Peace Now and an advisor to Barak and Mitzna, will run with Jewish Home, says “reality has set in”.

RothDr. Anat Roth used to be an activist with the leftist Peace Now organization and an advisor to former Labor leaders Ehud Barak and Amram Mitzna, but now has had a “change of heart”.

Roth announced on Saturday night that she would be running for the Knesset with the Jewish Home party.

She will be taking part in the Jewish Home’s primaries and will be competing for the spot that is reserved for a woman on the party’s Knesset’s list.

According to Dr. Roth, “The Labor movement and the Israeli left have stocks in the creation of Israel and the Zionist enterprise, but the facts have changed and reality has set in, and the Labor party cannot handle them. The last decade shows us that the desire for peace was and remains a thing of the Israeli side only, and that the processes in the Palestinian Authority and around us show that an Israeli withdrawal from land will lead to the establishment of a terrorist state.”

“Jewish Home is the only party that is correctly reading the map and the processes that take place around us, and is not selling illusions to the public. It connects between secular and religious, and not just talks about unity, but works to strengthen our common ground, our connection to Israel and the Israeli and Jewish and Zionist identity among the people,” said Dr. Roth.

“These are the issues with which I’ve dealt with in the last decade, and I hope I can continue to work for them in the Knesset, with the excellent Knesset members of the Jewish Home,” she added.

Jewish Home chairman, Minister Naftali Bennett, welcomed Dr. Roth to his party on Saturday night.

“Dr. Anat Roth, who came to us from Peace Now, represents the awakening of the left from the dreams of land for peace – and to a powerful Jewish identity and values of religious Zionism. Her joining us, along with many other talented women, makes the Jewish Home the party with the most female candidates. I wish her luck along with the rest of the candidates,” he said.

  1. Its nice to see a young leftist waking up, reminds of the civil rights Jews of the USA who had to wake up to black anti semitism. Her reasons for change were right on:

    “Jewish Home is the only party that is correctly reading the map and the processes that take place around us, and is not selling illusions to the public. It connects between secular and religious, and not just talks about unity, but works to strengthen our common ground, our connection to Israel and the Israeli and Jewish and Zionist identity among the people,”

    worth repeating and should make BH leadership think.

    The “resisters of occupation in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem” are spreading on Arab social media a frightening video demonstrating tactics on how to stab a Jew to death quickly and efficiently. The 1-minute and 13-second video shows the “teacher” calmly walking up to a “victim,” stabbing him, and walking away. One of the tactics appears to imitate the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) method of beheading. The guide to killing Jews teaches that after stabbing the victim, the knife should be twisted to maximize wounds and cause death. The Palestinian Authority and anti-Israel Arabs in Jerusalem do not need terrorist cells when “resisters” use social media to reach hundreds of thousands of Arabs in Jerusalem as well as in Judea, Gaza and Samaria, with a single simple post.

    Great example of one many former leftists who digested what is going on and came to the logical rational conclusions. The same is true of may kibutzniks and former kibutznicks.

  4. Welcome to a person that realized in time the truth and corrected course.
    Gradually Mr. Bennett is forming a formidable party.
    Meanwhile the renegade disgraces are settling into their real role. Burg just delivered their plan that has been in place since Oslo but now it is in the open as they are paid to do from overseas. That is what I defined long ago as unJews, But turning now to be run of the mill capos and Judenrat.
