Why Bibi Wants a Referendum

He who gets to write the questions, wins the referendum.

So I don’t think Netanyahu needs a referendum to ‘silence hard-liners’. Rather, I think he wants it as more ammunition to prevent the US from railroading Israel into an agreement that would prove disastrous.

About the Author: Vic Rosenthal created FresnoZionism.org to provide a forum for publishing and discussing issues about Israel and the Mideast conflict, especially where there is a local connection. Rosenthal believes that America’s interests are best served by supporting the democratic state of Israel, the front line in the struggle between Western civilization and radical Islam. The viewpoint is not intended to be liberal or conservative — just pro-Israel.

    It must be a referendum, is no other way, not only that is the Israelis say no, the PA has to go out from the West Bank to Jordan, this was stollen from Jordan with the help of the British Imperium, now the British they don't have any excuse, they are responsible of the situation, they should pay for it.

    let the most violent of the prisoners be traded for Jonathan Pollard. Let the future(to be freed)Palis be shot if falling back into jihadi crimes, let Israel retake Gaza, Jude, Samaria, east Jerusalem, the Sinai, medina and mecca.Let there be peace in Iran so it does not need to be nuked(this week).How about finally relieving peres and netanyahoo into retirement. They have harmed enough (times).

  3. Yossi Klavan says:

    Ariel Sharon held a referendum in the Likud about the Disengagement. He wrote the questions, lost miserably, and then went ahead and did it anyway. Yitzchak Rabin didn't have a majority for the Olso deal, so he bought off 2 MKs — by making them ministers with cars. If Netanyahu wants the deal to happen, it will happen, regardless of what the majority wants.

  4. Bibi's looking at his retirement income situation now. He wants the $100,000 speaker's fees and a share of the $1,000,000 Nobel Prize. And for that, he's willing to sell his country.

  5. If any PM of Israel can do whatever he pleases (more or less), then other than the mitzvah-based obligation of living in EY (which can – theoretically – be fulfilled by living in Amman, Jordan), what's the reason for making Aliyah? Can't stop the gov-t politically, anyway…

  6. and mitzvah-based obligation is a huge one, I'm not trying to minimize that, in the slightest.

  7. Yossi Klavan says:

    Gregory: The more people who move to Israel and love the land — the harder it will be for a PM to get away with such behaviour. Had religious Jewry moved here in the early 1900s instead of staying in Europe, the country would be a very diffierent place.
