Netanyahu Starts Stacking the Deck

PM Netanyahu appointed Minister of Science and Technology Yaakov Peri (Yesh Atid) to the inner cabinet committee involved in the freeing of Palestinian Authority terrorists, in order to ensure he will have a majority if any questions or problems arise in the committee regarding freeing these terrorists, according to a report in Times of Israel.

One is immediately reminded of how Rabin and Sharon took similar actions to stack the deck, to push through legislation and decisions that didn’t have a majority.

Besides Netanyahu, also in this committee are Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch. Netanyahu is concerned that Ya’alon and Aharonovitch might block parts of the deal.

Last week, Yesh Atid leader Finance Minister Yair Lapid had PM Netanyahu kick out Minister Yuval Steinitz from an inner cabinet meeting he was invited too, when Steinitz began to raise security related issues.

  1. Cody Flecker says:

    An uprising must take place before the formal"talks" begin in Washington DC. This uprising must overthrow the Government of Netanyahu either peacefully or by force. Netanyahu is a traitor to every Jew who has died in defense of Eretz Yisroel. Likewise to every Jew who has been wounded in the numerous wars of self defense. This latest action by Netanyahu is truly shameful.

  2. Alan Kardon says:

    What deal? Free terrorists for nothing in return. How many times did this fail in the past?

  3. Alan Kardon says:

    You can also thank Barack Hussein and Kerry for helping make this decision. Should we also have an "uprising" for the people assisting in this brilliant decision?

  4. Moshe Brody says:

    This a absolute disgraceful act of capitulation that will end in disaster. A country without self respect is likewise considered so in the eyes of the world.

  5. Moshe Brody says:

    It is very sad that a true , strong person of conviction is not leading. Are there any?

  6. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. How many times do we have to be "Fooled" by the Palis to get the point? I don't know what Netanyahu is thinking, maybe Kerry hypnotized him. We must make him hear it from the 90% of us who say resoundingly: NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  7. Marshall Ramsey II says:

    As mush as I don't want to admit it, it sounds like Netanyahu is an Illuminist and an elitist. Which of course means he is an enemy to the nation of Israel.

  8. Veronica Varallo says:

    Marshall Ramsey II Oh stop it Marshall, you know better then to say something like that. Have any of you thought that maybe this idiot in the White House has threatened Israel and Bibi is doing what he can to protect us. STOP bad mouthing the leader G-d Himself has placed over His Land from the Tribe of Judah. You, my friend are placing yourself and your family in a very dangerous situation in the Eyes of Ha'Shem. Watch your tongue! L'Shalom

  9. Veronica Varallo says:

    Maybe it is best it fail so Israel can turn around and destroy all the terrorist and drive the Palestinians back to Jordan where they came from. If I am not mistaken…. did Bibi not say that all those who did these things are no longer with us…. speaking of the Palestinian terrorist released for Gilad Shelit's transfer? No matter how many released prisoners, if they go back to terrorist activity they are killed. Leave Bibi alone, let him do what G-d speaks to his heart to do….. that is why G-d has placed him in the position he is in…. He has does an excellent job so far…. Am Yisrael Chai! L'Shalom

  10. Veronica Varallo says:

    Alan Kardon now you are getting close. At least you are considering the fact that Obama and Kerry have a lot to do with this transaction of freeing these terrorist. I would say their is a whole lot going on behind the scenes. It happens everyday in America with that idiot Obama. Just look at all the Sandals and how he intimidates those who oppose him. I would say Bibi is under a lot of intimidation from Obama and his puppet Kerry. Pray… instead of cutting Bibi down… all of you should be praying that G-d has the last say over Obama and these terrorist. I assure you, none of these terrorist will get away with anything… but Bibi must do what G-d speaks to his heart to do. L'Shalom

  11. I am with you Veronica, I am not Jewish but I also believe that the Lord G-d has put prime Minister Netanyahu in this place of position to deal with Obama and the Palestinians. pray for your leader that the Lord will strengthen him during this troubled times. G-d bless Israel and its people.

  12. Too many US citizens here knocking the Israeli PM, very easy to do so back in the US and the safety and comfort of the US, however many times you have made the visit to Israel. Obama Abbas and Kerry are the worms in the cheese if you want to knock any one knock them. US needs to stop guzzling so much damn gaz and weaning herself off Arabic Oil, therein lies your problem. The petro dollar has gone to the heads of the Arabs who are now holding you to ransom and using Israel as a scapegoat. Watch the Israeli press, all the press not just one paper. You all make me furious, I'm a European and frankly the EU and Ashton are completely out of touch with reality – like it or not EUROPE must purchase large amounts of her oil and gas from Russia, and it is precisely this factor which totaly astounds me at the EU's idiotic boycotting of Israel.

  13. Netanyahu has promised before elections will not release from the jails any arab terrorist, he is a liaar like Obama, Kerry, Abbas.
    It is forbiden by international law to release any terrorist, so in this case any one can sue damages to the Israeli goverment.
