I still maintain that Netanyahu’s most central value is a nuclear Iran, which will require a friendly relationship with the White House. And if the cost of such a friendship will have to be the pursuit of a Palestinian state in some or all of Judea and Samaria – Netanyahu will not turn it down out of hand. To be able to at least appear as if he is vigorously pursuing the 2-state solution, Netanyahu must include Labor in his government, bolstered by Torah Judaism and, possibly, Shas.
I don’t see Jewish Home fitting inside that kind of government.
