How is the Right busy hiding its fractured state and all the infighting?

The previous government was an odd collection of very different parties, from pragmatic, Muslim anti-Zionists to secular-Jewish Zionists, and from radical-secular-Jewish-anti-Zionist to liberal modern-labor.

However, the next coalition Netanyahu is supposed to bring together is no less diverse. From ultra-Orthodox anti-Zionists to liberal secular-Jewish-Zionist capitalists, and from Orthodox-Sephardic-Jewish-working-class Zionists to National-Zionist-Orthodox with a bigoted wing.

I guess is that the infighting in the coalition will not only be during the formation period, when a division of minister posts needs to be made, a budget proposal, and an agreement on main points everyone is held by.

This coalition has no consensus on anything:

Some are for democracy and the free market, and some for authoritarian-religious rule.

Some are for more money for the rich, some for more money for the poor, and some for more money for the middle class.

Sure, they will all be against more concessions toward Muslim-terrorist groups, but any other Israeli government would be too.

Sure, they may have a consensus to tame the left-wing High Court, IDF, and security forces, but those will jointly fight back and resist changes. Advertisement

If the world, the US, the UN, Iran, or Russia turn against Israel is not in our hands so there is no need to check anyone’s policies there.

Leading right-wingers will endlessly make outrageous statements to make the Left erupt in protest to cloak their right-wing infighting. Part of the wild statements may be posturing as part of a coalition negotiation. Even the disingenuous, supposedly calming words of the Right will rile the Left.

This government will meet its limit within half a year. Again, Bibi will call for elections to get more seats. Again, he will get fewer seats but claim victory anyway.

Remember, this right-wing ‘majority’ was only made possible by two sets of anti-Bibi parties refusing to run together. One of each duo almost made it to the threshold (of 4 seats), meaning that the Left lost almost 8 seats for no reason at all. They won’t repeat this mistake. This could be Israel’s last right-wing government ever as most Jews are basically progressives.

Meanwhile, only names have changed. For the rest, all will stay the same. Politicians who lie, brag, insult, and do well without getting credit.

Only, for activist, better times have arrived. Small advice: Make signs and banners that are recyclable, like: No! Never! Listen to the People! Etc.
