Israeli Minister of Education Naftali Bennett stated this morning on an Army Radio interview that he would demand the Minister of Defense position in a new coalition: “I don’t plan on pushing Netanyahu out, but if he is Prime Minister again, I will demand the Ministry of Defense. I think it’s essential.”
