Naftali Bennett - Education Minister and Leader of Jewish Home, Israel

Stephen Sackur talks to Israeli education minister, Naftali Bennett, and asks him what lies behind the recent chaos in Israeli politics.

Israel's seemingly indestructible prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has dodged another political bullet. After the flare-up of violence in Gaza, his defence minister quit and another key cabinet member, Naftali Bennett, threatened to leave as well if he was not given the defence portfolio. But the prime minister called Bennett's bluff and he decided to stay put after all. Stephen Sackur asks him what is behind the chaos in Israeli politics. Are the right-wing factions putting their own interests before those of the nation?
