Israel faces second election this year after Netanyahu fails to form cabinet

On Sept. 17, Israelis face their second election this year. After midnight Wednesday May 29, the 21th Knesset dissolved itself by 74 to 45 votes – just a month after it was voted in and became the shortest-lived parliament in Israel’s history. All the opposition parties voted against dissolution, except for the two Israeli-Arab factions which cast their votes in favor, along with Likud and the right-wing and religious parties. By this motion, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu blocked President Reuven Rivlin’s path to passing the torch for forming a new government to another Knesset member.

Straight after the vote, the prime minister laid the blame for the unnecessary election at the door of Israeli Beitenu leader Avigdor Lieberman, accusing him of willfully impeding the formation of a right-wing government coalition by the Wednesday midnight deadline. Lieberman, he said, had cheated his voters by aligning himself with the left. The Yisrael Beitenu leader held out to the end against giving the Netanyahu lineup of 60 a majority by adding the support of his 5 member-faction.

Netanyahu lamented the time wasted on another superfluous election campaign when vital national business was at hand. The first session of a US-Russian-Israeli committee was due to take place very soon in Jerusalem for a unique discussion on regional and Israeli security, he revealed. He promised more information on this development in the coming days. The White House announced shortly after this disclosure that the US. Russian and Israeli national security advisers would hold a joint meeting next month in Jerusalem.
Opposition leader Benny Gantz adhered to his party’s electioneering line which claimed that the coalition negotiations failed because they did not offer Netanyahu protection against the corruption indictments allegedly facing him,
On Thursday morning, Israel plunges straight into a fresh election campaign which is likely to be no less turbulent than the foregoing one. It will be interesting to see who the voter decides to punish for one of the most abject fiascoes in the country’s political history.

        Take up your historical stupidity with “Lord” Balfour.

        Antisemites at the UN created the squatter colony by taking what wasn’t theirs on behalf of antisemites who weren’t there.

          I see too much talk about issues of the past, but no or too little concern about the real problem: the Palexit.

          How much longer will they linger on Israelis lands, these refugees of my foot pulled off directly out of Arafat big nose?

          Once again the haredi do not get their way,throws a hussy fit and crashes a government. When are Israelis going to grow some stones and drag these people into the 21st century? They don’t want to work,go into the army,or do anything to pull their weight.Yet,they insist on undeserved privileges.

      “The Occupiers of Palestine have been fascists for a long time.”

      Yes, but fortunately 71 years ago the indigenous people of this land reestablished the Jewish nation here after 2000 years. And the land is again prospering. The land had been waiting in tears for this full return. The same language, culture, and religion as the last independent nation that was in this place is again in control.

      The Romans and Ottomans were fascists of sorts. The British not really.

        That’s a cute little myth to justify europe’s antisemitic takeover of semitic land.

    Elections are a good thing, but let us think of Iran: no election for the very top position since 30 (thirty!) years.
    This is why the idea to “show him the pillow” while asleep gains more ground every day.
    The palace guards should not expect green cards and 1 million each, there is no written promisse of it.
    Depending on the timing the reward money may vary quite a lot.
    But, the genral idea is why leave for tomorrow a task you can easily bring to closure today?

    Priceless. The terrified antisemitic squatters blame Persia for their own political diarrhea!

    You don’t blame the balloons?

    Not the kids with rocks?

    Not those KITES?

    The bottom line is this, according to sources: NuttyYahoo the election thief would not consent to Avigdor’s demand of a constant, mobile, rotating buffet to accompany him everywhere throughout the Knesset. Not even in exchange for dictatorial powers and the dissolution of the supreme kourt.

    Sources close to friends close to allies of NuttyYahoo say he thought $10m/day in welfare could not address squatter needs and feed Avigdor.

    Sources add that Don Quixote Bolton is “pretty gosh darn sure” that he’s got a way to cover up one failure with another: “I’m thinking of sending out a Twit that ends the Knesset!” he joked (maybe). Totally different sources say that ossified, geriatric Iran-Contra mummies want to pronounce Juan Guido as the newly empowered ‘President’ of the antisemitic squatter colony.

    This would satisfy everyone. NetanYahoo can flee from justice to replace Wolf Blitzer. Avigdor gets his buffet. Bolton gets to win for once!

    Look out Iran!!

      How could I forget?

      The ossified, geriatric Iran-Contra mummies get to retreat back to their retirement communities in Florida, visiting their therapist and downing impotence pills.

      The Venezuela thing has really left them feeling their age.

    The trouble with the occupation of Israel land under the pretense of areas A and B has as a root cause the money pumped to the people of Arab persuasion to do nothing, just vegetate there.
    The money are pumped in by wrongdoers criminal jihadi sheiks and kings and the UN organization of Muslims and ethnic Arabs.
    The people of Arab persuasion produce nothing, other than trouble for Israelis.
    Cut all funding and the people of Arab persuasion will show off very fast their true persuasion and run back to their places of origin.

    israel is a small but corrupted country, where many small parties , sects fighting for power and wealth.

    the jews are not good ruler , jews do not deserve to have own government
    the jews must live either under a moslem emir or under a christian king
    israel must be ruled by ruled by other folk (arab, persian, turk, roman, greece)
    at end of the day hamas , hisbullah , PLO wil rule israel

      Sounds like they’re behaving just like “real” Jews. Get Moses Aron and their Yahweh to do all the work while they sit back and wait for victory…
