Maariv journalist Ben Caspit attacked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s behavior towards Yamina chair MK Naftali Bennett and New Hope chair MK Gideon Sa’ar throughout the years.
“Try to remember for a moment what Bennett has been put through by the trolls who live in the Prime Minister’s Residence: They spread stories about him, they demanded Walla!’s editors slander his deceased father, his chef wife, and write negatively about him,” Caspit wrote in his column in Maariv.
He noted that in one recording published by Nir Hefetz, Netanyahu can be heard calling Bennett a “little dog.”
“Now the government and political life is dependent on a hair,” Caspit wrote.
“That’s the reason that Netanyahu is suddenly trying to be national peacemaker, the one who is volunteering to ‘put all our resentments behind us.’ He has no other option.”
“In my opinion, he is too late….it’s already accumulated. All of those who he has stepped on, shamed, embarrassed, and used on his way up are waiting for him now on his way down.”

Recordings, taken during interrogation of state witness Nir Hefetz from personal mobile device, reveal conversation about Yamina Chairman.
Recordings of Nir Hefetz, who was one of the people closest to the Prime Minister, included choice words against Yamina Chairman MK Naftali Bennett, Raviv Drucker revealed in Channel 13 News. [Nov 14 , 2020]
The recordings of Hefetz, who has since become a state witness against Netanyahu, were seized on his mobile phone.
Thus, a recording was produced of Netanyahu responding in February 2018 to Bennett who criticized him for his conduct in Case 1,000.
And this is how the conversation sounded:
Nir Hefetz: By the way, Bennett came out really zero.
Netanyahu: Yes, he’s a little dog.
Nir Hefetz: Yes.
Netanyahu: Are there any comments about him?
Nir Hefetz: No, no, it’s just … he (Bennett) sent a message back after me, I did not call to not annoy you, he told me “listen, we made you a big discount, don’t start with us, we also know how to fight”.
Netanyahu: Well then?
Nir Hefetz: (laughs). OK. It’s stupid. You know what, stupid.
Nir Hefetz: His right political consideration is to remain silent, to do what Kahlon did.
