Dani Dayan, Israel’s former consul-general to New York and former chairman of the Yesha Council settlement umbrella group, said Wednesday he was joining Gideon Sa’ar’s new right-wing party, New Hope.

Dayan said he joined the party out of a “sense of commitment to the need for a change of government and the formation of a new government headed by Gideon Sa’ar, the only one who can lead the change that Israel and its citizens need.”

Sa’ar said in a statement: “Dayan is an asset to the Israeli public. Dayan clearly and distinctly expresses the national-liberal idea and understands deeply the importance of unity in Israel and the unity of the Jewish people as a value and an essential part of the power of Israel.”
