There is a nice profile piece on Danny Danon (not to be confused with Danny Dayan) in the Times of Israel website. Danon is a secular right wing candidate on the Likud Beitenu list. For those of you who are hesitant about whether to vote for Likud Beitenu or Bayit Yehudi, this article is worth a look. Danon is typical of the character of the Likud list.
The Likud has an excellent list of right wing candidates this time around, and it would be a real shame not to vote for them because of the desire to support a sectoral party. All of the members in the first twenty spots on the Likud slate, except for Moshe Feiglin, have been Knesset Members before. They have experience and know how to pass legislation.
The Bayit Yehudi list does not come close. The head, Naftali Bennet, is a newcomer to the Knesset, as is the rest of his list except for three members (Uri Ariel, Nissim Smoliansky and Uri Orbach). This means that if Bayit Yehudi gets 14 seats, 11 of them will be filled with complete newcomers. I don’t doubt their sincerity, but I do doubt their political savvy and their ability to get things done.
