Talks on a new government coalition have turned into spin after spin and bluff after bluff, with “everyone on first” and no one at home. Everyone is wearing masks to the point that some people, like Livni, already have lost their identities.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s deal with Tzipi Livni to appoint her in charge of the Justice ministry and the peace process have thrown the Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home) into a frenzy to the point that it supposedly is preparing for new elections.
Party chairman Naftali Bennett said he wants the Prime Minister to cancel the deal, which is tantamount to asking Netanyahu to quit politics.
Meanwhile, if all the rumors can be believed, Shas will sign up with Netanyahu on Friday and Likud Beyteinu will somehow bring Jewish Home into the future government “soon.”
Another spin is that Netanyahu will go with Labor and the Haredi parties if Yair Lapid, chairman of the Future (Yesh Lapid) party and the Jewish Home don’t compromise on their campaign promises.
Knesset Member Shelly Yechimovich vowed during the electing campaign she would be Prime Minister or sit in the Opposition, and so far she has been a rarity as a politician and has kept her word. If she were to follow Livni’s act of giving up on ideals to gain a Cabinet position, she would be signing out as head of Labor.
