Great news: 'Discreet' negotiations will allow Jewish Home to stay in coalition while Livni makes serious concessions

I think I am going to make up bumper stickers saying "Don't blame me - I didn't vote for Jewish Home" and sell them to Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria as they are expelled from their homes (God forbid). This story shows that Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett is either a neophyte or mendacious - take your pick.
Netanyahu kept Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett satisfied by receiving a commitment from the Americans that they would not say the talks would be based on pre-1967 borders. That enabled Bennett to claim victory, despite Netanyahu agreeing to release dozens of terrorists from prison.
Receiving a commitment that the talks will be held discretely could keep Bayit Yehudi in the coalition for an extended period of time, even as Israel's chief negotiator, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, makes serious concessions at Netanyahu's behest.

"As long as we are not giving up our territorial assets, we are staying in the coalition," said Bayit Yehudi faction head Ayelet Shaked.
Who are the bigger fools? The 'Jewish Home' party's leadership or the people who voted for them?
