Unity? No, Thanks

8 5 23
15.04.2019

“Unity now” was the headline of an op-ed jointly written by journalist Hanoch Daum and singer Aviv Geffen that appeared on the front page of the daily Yedioth Ahronoth after last week’s election. In an op-ed in Haaretz in Hebrew last Friday, Ravit Hecht also asserted that “the people chose a unity government.”

Commentator Raviv Drucker went even further, urging Avigdor Lieberman to condition his entry into Benjamin Netanyahu’s government on Netanyahu agreeing to form a unity government with the Kahol Lavan ticket.

It seems the left – instead of digesting its huge loss, withdrawing into itself, engaging in some introspection and asking itself why, in election after election, it wins in the pre-election polls but loses at the ballot box – has chosen the easy way out: outflanking the prime minister from the inside and embracing him so he will commit to the center-left’s positions.
