Jewish Home ministers call off walkout. No snap election. Netanyahu rides out cabinet crisis with expected Gaza move

Education and Justice Ministers, Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked surprised Monday, Nov. 19, by announcing that their Jewish Home party would stay in the government if Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu stood by his pledge to reverse the “hesitant and stammering” security policy of the last decade, and switch to a “creative, proactive course for leading the country to victory.” The two ministers spoke at a special news conference they called in the Knesset, at which they were widely predicted to announce their resignations.

“For the past decade, our soldiers have been held back by one constraint after another and taught to fear the military prosecutor more than the enemy,” Bennett said in a detailed indictment of the Netanyahu government’s security policy. “Hamas and Hizballah became more brazen day by day because they sensed our fear, whereas our enemies no longer feared us,” Bennett said. However, if Netanyahu’s pledge to change course was serious, Jewish Home would not desert the ship of government, but support him as defense minister unconditionally. “The state of Israel is too precious for us to walk away without this test.”

Shaked accused Avigdor Lieberman of handing Hamas a prize by his resignation as defense minister last week, leaving the government with a minuscule majority. “We won’t give the terrorists another gift by running out on the government,” she said. “The Middle East is watching us.” It was evident that the prime minister had pulled the two ministers back from quitting, by assuring them that a security operation “was still unfinished” and their resignations now would be “irresponsible” in national terms.

This development has terminated the government crisis triggered last week by Lieberman’s resignation. Israel’s next move in the Gaza Strip is now tensely awaited. The Palestinian Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists ruling the Gaza Strip, who were already celebrating their success in maneuvering Israel into pre-election mode, must now prepare for Israel’s next military operation.

      more news like that from losers united, and Israeli cities and towns will start burning to the ground.

      Yes Dave, we can certainly hope so. I’ve always had high regard for Prime Minister Netanyahu and he certainly deserves our trust at this critical time. He has displayed an artist’s touch in holding the government together during this critical moment; now may be the time for another legendary, decisive Israeli strike!

    the only israeli enemy is the israelis themselves …. no one your government is falling down … just make sure when you fall to take hamas with you

  • Nov 19, 2018 @ 13:20 at 13:20

    so next week they will not deliver 15 milion to HAMAS?
    last month they want to go to elections and now its war on the gate?
    one thing is for sure, they move all the blame on Liberman, for now…

  • Nov 19, 2018 @ 13:36 at 13:36

    ya ya. they will deliver more money oil money to hamas from da arabs. they won’t attack as they are scared of world opinion and casualties and their own shadow. weak idiots. ben gurion will turn in his grave. this has emboldened hamas and hezbollah and the russians. the israelis lack courage and are too nice. and lack faith in their torah. we need a torah state not a weak secular democracy and a strong proud torah king.

    • Nov 19, 2018 @ 16:13 at 16:13

      raf, interesting idea… torath yhwh compliance is a must, even for those of us of the other nations. However, could Israel ever undo the sin of asking for a king to replace their judges, and yhwh who was their king?

        jews are a nation? since when? also, does haShem demand judges, or do the people demand it? isn’t love the whole of the law, to love the Lord God with all of your heart and your neighbour as you love yourself? but they have shown partiality in the law.

        (You shall commit no injustice in judgment; you shall not favor a poor person or respect a great man; you shall judge your fellow with righteousness. )

        And now I, too, have made you contemptible and low to the entire people according to how you do not keep My ways and [how] you show favoritism in the Torah

    Trump and Bolsonaro are disappointed at Bibi for not destroying Hamas.
    The International Community expected Israel to strike Hamas non-stop (independent of collateral damage) and / or cut Gaza electricity.
    Until Hamas and all other terror organizations present an unconditional surrender.
    The situation is so favorable, that Bibi lost the oportunity to win the 100 years war, without a vulnerable land invasion. It could all be over, just like that.

    Some basic notions seem in need to be remembered, IMMO.
    Jews are people like anybody else.
    Israel is a country like any other.
    Neither Jews nor Israel have any reason whatsoever to have to either apologize for existing, for wanting and having a right to the very basic things that all others have, namely life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and neither Jews nor Israel have any reason whatsoever to ask permission to (a) live and (b) to defend their lives and values when they come under attack.
    It is pitiful that an Israeli minister has to say, as Bennet did as mentioned in the Debka post: “Jewish Home ministers call off walkout . . .” [] that “For the past decade, our soldiers have been […] taught to fear the military prosecutor more than the enemy”
    All of those responsible for this state of affairs ought to be put against a wall and shot for treason. No matter how many they are and no matter what excuses they may try to put forward.
    Who with any claim to decency would expect Jewish soldiers to have to fight with their hands tied behind their backs?
    And why?
    Is this some crazy kind of Jewish Stockholm Syndrome after two thousand years of mistreatment?
    Only a total moron or an evil leftist will fail to recognize the suicidal attitude there.
    Israeli Jews are picking up the general Jew-hating attitude of their enemies and running with it as if it was right.
    It is not.
    And it is suicidal of Israelis to accept it and try to live by it.
    Because that basic attitude is (a) Jews are evil and (b) Israel should cease to exist.
    If that is going to be your motto then turn off the lights and go back to Auschwitz.
    Some may be too young to remember that there too the general attitude was that Jews are evil and have no right to exist.
    Wake up, will you?

      Herzl, author of ‘the jewish state’, an ardent nationalist whobelonged to a German nationalist fraternity in college, wrote:-

      ‘Anti-Semitism increases … among the nations; indeed, it is bound to increase… its immediate cause is our excessive production of mediocre intellects, who cannot find an outlet downwards or upwards …’

      ‘…excessive production of mediocre intellects’… go figure

        A “mediocre intellect” must be better than a total non-intellect, as evidenced by your post!

      Thank you, patriot, . . . leaving a snake in the garden will always get someone snake bit. Gaza should become on flattened pile of rubble with nothing moving in it whatsoever. THAT will end the problem.

    I will translate what is being said between the lines in this article and the previous one. The attack on Lebanon and Syria is on and we are just waiting for the OK from the U.S. when President Trump sees Czar Putin in the G20 meeting. You are going to have your war.

      And there shall be on every high mountain and on every raised hill, canals, rivulets of water, on the day of the great slaying, when the great ones fall.

      • Nov 19, 2018 @ 19:58 at 19:58

        Once upon the time a King’s Minister was passing with his caravan through a narrow muddy road between raised hills, canals, and rivulets of water.

        On the way he came across a bullock cart, which was stuck in the mud and was blocking the way. The cart driver was trying in vain to pull it out of the mud. “Get out of my way,” shouted the proud minister. “Sir, my cart is stuck here. You will have to wait till I can get it out,” said the cart driver politely. Furious, the minister picked up a huge stone and threw it at the bullock cart.

        But alas, instead of hitting the cart, the stone hit the chain of his own caravan and bouncing back, hit the minister’s forehead.

        There we clearly see that being patient pays, and that for being a jackass pays back.

          If you are kind to the cruel, eventually you will be cruel to the kind. The enemies of Israel are also enemies of HaShem. He only sends these people to us so that we should do teshuvah and wipe them out permanently. They do not obey the Seven Laws of Noah therefore they deserve the destruction that they have brought to themselves. We are not allowed to make a covenant with them at all.

    ‘Jewish Home would not DESERT THE SHIP …’

    So let me get this right, Bennett and Shaked offer this hilarity packed ‘damning with faint unconditional support’ Revised Ultimatum/hostage tape with straight faces, not as part of some SNL skit, but with the devil in the details following disclaimer –

    ‘Jewish Home would not desert the ship’ IF AND ONLY IF Dr Jekyll quits fooling around and turns back into Mr Hyde’

    Well I’m certainly glad that’s cleared up!

    Bennett: ‘IF Bibi stood by his pledge to reverse the “hesitant and stammering” security policy of the last decade, and switch to a “creative, proactive course for leading the country to victory … – IF Netanyahu’s pledge to change course was serious, Jewish Home would not DESERT THE SHIP of government, but support him as defense minister unconditionally’

    Yes, indeed

    ‘Jewish Home would not ABANDON SHIP’ is actually marginally more likely because Mr Hyde threw all the life preservers overboard, cut loose the lifeboats, and strapped Jewish Home to the mast. Yep, everybodys going down if Wiley Coyote goes down

      @ “william teller”,

      Take your MEDS immediately, “william teller” since the context of all of your comments clearly indicate that too much time has passed since you last did so.

    There should be an end for the Arab settlers in Gaza and the region West of Jordan.
    Arab settlers have the whole Est Bank only for themselves.
    From the hills of the Est Bank one could admire from free and with no restrictions the wonderful panorama of the Jerusalem.
    Why then linger around on other people lands?

    It’s time !!

    Flat gaza and do it in a couple of hours before some international negotiators try to implement a ceasefire again!

    Destroy the enemies of God as in the times of Jericho! Don’t let alive any enemy in your God given land. Don’t repeat the mistake done in the times you entered the promised land. Till now you suffer still the consequences of that mistake!

    Call on God and His Son to deliver you!
