American-Israeli political pundit Caroline Glick will be joining Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked’s new party ahead of elections this April, the Breitbart contributor announced on Wednesday.

“Together we will work to protect Israel, to increase its security and to enact truly right-wing policies,” said Glick. “This is an emotional day for me. I call on all those whose hearts beat with a Zionist spirit, secular and religious, to join us. This is your home.”

“Caroline is a relentless Zionist fighter,” said Bennett. “With her, we are building today the dream team of the Israeli Right in order to expand the right-wing block — and so that Israel can be triumphant again.”

Shaked labeled Glick “a courageous fighter symbolizing the real, pure, conservative Right. She will be a great addition to the Knesset from our side.”

Bennett and Shaked left the religious, right-wing Jewish Home Party late last month, hoping to unite religious and secular Israelis.
