The right and the worst.

  • Benjamin Netanyahu, after spending 17 months in opposition, has made a stunning comeback with his Likud party and its right religious allies taking a solid lead in Tuesday’s Parliamentary elections.
  • When about 93% votes were counted, his coalition, including the extremists religious Zionism and ultra orthodox Shas and United Torah Judaism, is poised to win 65 seats, a comfortable majority to form a government in the 120 member knesset.
  • While Likud is set to become the largest bloc with 32 seats, the center right Yesh atid , led by prime minister Yair Lapid, the architect of last year’s anti Netanyahu coalition, is projected to win 24 seats.
  • Netanyahu, Israel’s longest serving prime minister , was ousted last year when Mr.Lapid and other opposition leaders formed a cross ideology coalition of right wing, centrist, center left and Arab parties.
  • But the coalition government, led by Yamina party’s Naftali Bennet, eventually fell apart, pushing the country into its fifth election since 2019.
  • For Mr.Netanyahu, who is in trial for three corruption cases, the time spent in the opposition was an opportunity to rebuild his right religious base.
  • He attacked the “weak” coalition and promised to make Israel “strong again”.
  • With a clear majority in the Knesset ,Mr.Netanyahu could build a stable government and pass legislation bypassing the opposition’s pressure tactics.
  • But his return would also raise questions on regional peace and Israel’s social stability.
  • “The king of Israel” for his loyal supporters, he at best is a divisive leader, whose commitment towards a just solution of the Palestinian questions remains doubtful.
  • He had once said that an independent Palestinian state would not be formed under his watch.
  • Ben Gvir who in 2007 was convicted to inciting racism and backing a terrorist group, wants to dismantle the Palestinian authority, the provisional government in the occupied territories, and is staunchly opposed to a Palestinian state.
  • He has also attacked Israel’s Arab citizens.
  • While the government of Netanyahu and Ben Gvir would be a leap for Israel’s right wing,any leader who is invested in the country’s long term interests cannot ignore the growing violence in the occupied lands and widening social disquiet inside Israel proper .

Practice Questions:

  • For what reason former prime Minister Mr.Netanyahu was spending 17 months in opposition?
