did Shaked choose United Right over Zehut or before Zehut?

Otzma Yehudit and Zehut, especially Zehut (Moshe Feiglin) are upset that Shaked and Bennett came to a final agreement for a merger with the United Right and left them out int he cold. Otzma Yehudit is saying "forget it, we will go with NOAM now", and Zehut is saying they will run alone. And they are laying the blame on Ayelet Shaked for their running alone, and for any eventual right-wing votes that will be wasted as a result.

Personally I see no problem with her first working on the deal with the main party, United Right, and only going to the smaller parties after. A deal with Feiglin in advance could have complicated negotiations with the United Right and that deal was far more important, to Shaked, to Bennett, to Smotritch, to Peretz and to the Right, than a deal with Feiglin or Ben Gvir.

And Shaked has said that now that this deal has been finalized, she will spend the coming days working on bringing in Zehut and Otzma. So another deal may, or may not, work out anyway, but she did the right thing by moving first to work out a deal with Peretz and Smotritch..

  1. Otzma and Zehut have been over estimating their political value. They will have plenty of time to reconsider their positions from the sidelines until the next election.
