An Israeli political party is splitting in two for Israel’s next election. The National Union bloc will split into two parties for the next elections, Yisrael Beiteinu and Moledet-Tekuma, its leaders announced Tuesday. National Union is composed of several right-wing factions, representing both secular and religious Zionist voters. Avigdor Lieberman, a secular immigrant from the former Soviet Union, will lead Yisrael Beiteinu, which will target secular rightists and Russian-speaking immigrants.
