Why in the world needs publication be held over until after the elections in Israel? And why does none of the Israeli political parties demand that we see it before?
There are two possibilities.
- If it asks too many concessions of Israel again (which we can assume because Kusher talked about “reasonableness” which is code for: both give up which in practice means for decades already that Israel is forced to give in and the Arab-Palestinian leadership not) which would be dangerous and we saw it before the elections, the Right would get many more votes.
- If it seems to give a realistic base for peace (which will be false because you can’t build peace here unless the local centuries-old hatred against Jews is dealt with) and we saw it before the elections, the Left would win dramatically because Israelis have proven to be so gullible and naive.
In other words, we don’t get to see the Peace Plan because either it asks fatal concessions of Israel or it gives false hope. In both cases, the Right should be able to show its true colors and profit from it in the elections.
Before the elections, the AG should not give his legal opinion on cases against Bibi because that is meddling in the elections and we should vote on what we want from our politicians, not about our legal beliefs.
But the Peace plan we must see because not showing it is dishonest. We can vote but not know what the situation will be after the elections that our representatives must deal with? Unacceptable.
The Right must stop being a coward and demand that the Plan is made public now.
If Bibi will not demand the publication, any Israeli with some historic sense should take no chances and vote right of the Likud. Safety first.
