Bayit Yehudi will not remain in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's government if it officially adopts peace proposals presented by US Secretary of State John Kerry, even if reservations are presented, party leader Naftali Bennett said in closed conversations Wednesday.
Ahead of Kerry's visit, Bennett spoke multiple times this week with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Israel's negotiators in diplomatic talks with the Palestinians. He insisted on receiving as much information as possible about America's proposal immediately after Kerry meets with Netanyahu.
"Bennett is up to speed and has done his homework," a source close to him said. "He will not present red lines publicly but those who need to know know."
One of Bennett's main goals has been to coordinate strategy with the Likud. Bayit Yehudi MK Orit Struck, who heads the Knesset's Land of Israel lobby, received commitments from most of the Likud faction to help prevent diplomatic proposals from being advanced.
Bennett and Struck intend to make sure that Netanyahu will not be able to replace Bayit Yehudi in the coalition with Labor, due to opposition from Likud ministers and MKs.

Good! I hope he means it. That is the only reasonable response to Kerry’s proposal.
Amen to that Brother.
Anybody who deals with John Kerry is a fool.
If the U.S. can't do better than that then it shouldn't expect any nation to trust us or take us seriously.
