Ever since Israelis were naive enough to believe Arafat, which cost us 1,000 dead during the 2nd Intifada, the peace process with the Arab Palestinian leaders is dead and Israel has a solid right-wing majority at the polls.
Yet, would-be PMs, from ultra-left-wing to right-wing, got so frustrated with Bibi’s 25-year tight government hold that they banded together to form a unity government to effectuate change. So, Netanyahu finally lost?
No, he only lost this battle. But this broad coalition is going to blow up eventually. Give it a week, a couple of months, a couple of years, or even four years. And what will happen then?
Right, elections. And the right-wing voters who’d voted for Netanyahu’s right-wing rivals will walk away from them and angrily rejoin Netanyahu’s Likud. The parties of Lieberman, Bennett, and Sa’ar will dwindle and the Likud will emerge larger than ever. He won’t need the religious block (or anyone) anymore, make secular changes (Gay marriage), and more peace treaties, broadening the appeal of the Likud. Netanyahu then can lead his last coalition before his retirement safely and then appoints his successor.
No need to believe me, as if I had perfect vision. Look at the facts. Look at what the left-wing voters did with Gantz after he did the responsible thing by joining Bibi because of corona. They dropped him like a hot potato.
One could blame Netanyahu for being so stubborn that he enabled these opposing parties to join against him, but I think the voters will forget this.
Bibi’ll have an easy time as opposition leader, allowing him to write a new book and win his court cases. And then he’ll return, more vital than ever.
