Bennett’s Unholy Alliance with Lapid

Not exactly what Jewish Home voters thought they would get on election day.

So instead of having a right-of-center coalition which can pass a moderate universal draft plan and will not focus on reviving negotiations with the Palestinians (which will bring negative pressure on Israel and result in concessions and a weakened position vis-a-vis Iran), the government will be something like this: Likud-Beitenu-Jewish Home-Lapid-Livni-Kadima. That government will be more likely to make make negotiations a priority, make concessions to Obama/the Palestinian Authority and have an unrealistic draft plan. Not exactly what Jewish Home voters thought they would get on election day – another example of the brilliance of Israel’s electoral system.
