Lapid, Livni and Bennett: Anarchy in Netanyahu Government

Recent policy statements of Government Ministers Yair Lapid and Tsipi Livni make the thinking person wonder what they are doing in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s government. They sound more like the American Government than coalition partners with Naftali Bennett.

Two centrist* parties in the coalition – Yesh Atid and Hatnua – threatened to quit the government if it annexed West Bank settlements in response to the vacuum in the peace process.

“If even one settlement is unilaterally annexed, Yesh Atid won’t just quit the government, it will topple it,” said its party head, Finance Minister Yair Lapid, on Sunday. (Jerusalem Post)

The ideological differences between the various members of Bibi’s coalition are more opposite than a well made Chinese sweet and sour dish. Those sorts of culinary contrasts may taste great, but they can make for anarchistic governing, which is what seems to be going on right now in Israel.

At the same time Minister Naftali Bennett has promoted his program to annex many of the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

Under the plan, Israel will gradually annex Area C of Judea and Samaria, where 400,000 Israelis reside…”

Yes, those are the same places that Lapid and Livni want to make judenrein, cleansed of Jews.

Nu, I ask you:

Which of these plans represents the ideology of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu?

Is anyone in the driver’s seat?

*I would not call Yesh Atid or Hatnuah “centrist.” They are both extreme Left, even though Lapid made a point of inviting a variety of people to run on his list. When it comes to official ideology, they are just window-dressing.
