Likud acted Tuesday to ban Rabbi Meir Kahane’s extremist Kach party from running in the Knesset elections next November.
Deputy Minister Ronni Milo disclosed that Likud will ask the Central Eletions Committee to reject Kahane’s list, because of Kach’s racist views. He said Likud would never cooperate with “a racist party” or take it as a coalition partner.
At the same time, Milo said he hoped the Labor Party would take similar action to outlaw anti-Zionist parties, such as the Communist Party, and state unequivocally that it will never consider them as coalition partners.
