Netanyahu Stuns Israel With Historic Coalition Government

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (left) and Kadima chairman Shaul Mofaz hold a joint press conference at the Knesset Tuesday after announcing a surprise agreement to form a coalition government.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (left) and Kadima chairman Shaul Mofaz hold a joint press conference at the Knesset Tuesday after announcing a surprise agreement to form a coalition government.

Settlement policy might be another point of disagreement between Kadima and Likud. Israel’s Supreme Court ruled Monday that the government had to go ahead with the demolition of 30 homes that were built on Palestinian-owned land in the Beit El settlement’s Ulpana neighborhood.

Although Netanyahu has been noncommittal, right-wing politicians in his coalition, including several Likud MKs, want to legalize retroactively neighborhoods and outposts like Ulpana.

Netanyahu could be torn between his obligation to Kadima MKs who oppose such legislative initiatives and his more right-wing coalition partners.

The peace process may lead to some points of contention, but opponents have refrained from placing the blame on Netanyahu’s government for the lack of progress in negotiations.
