Understanding Israel’s Upcoming Election

Netanyahu’s impending victory is due to the fact that the prime minister has done a reasonably good job, the economy is okay, terrorism is low, he’s kept out of trouble.

The big question, of course, is whether Netanyahu would ever attack Iran’s nuclear installations. I think the answer to that question is “no” for many reasons, only one of them being that this would lead to a confrontation with the Obama Administration.

After decades of hearing American writers and alleged experts misunderstand Israeli politics and thinking I can say that nothing has changed in this regard.

  1. Charlie Hall says:

    "People are waiting to be told that their living standards can be improved without threatening their security".

    Bennett has said that he can cut the IDF budget enormously and stimulate the economy. Maybe that is why he is doing so well in the polls.

    "True, the economy has done very well but the price of relatively high employment, rapid growth, and low inflation has been high prices."

    Most of the free world would love to have Israel's recent rates of unemployment and economic growth.
