Political tensions at fever pitch 4 days before Gantz’s PM mandate runs out

Kahol-Lavan leader Benny Gantz conferred lengthily with President Reuvent Rivlin Saturday night on his fading prospects of forming a government in the four days remaining for his candidacy. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu issued a strong appeal to the Bloc of 55 which he leads to make every effort to prevent Gantz forming a minority government supported by the United Arab List. In his video message, Netanyahu said another election would be a disaster, but a government whose policies depended on Arab Knesset votes would be even more disastrous.

The political deadlock remains. Gantz will try again on Sunday to persuade Yisrael Beitenu leader Avigdor Lieberman who holds the key to join or at least support his government, but his chances are slim. For now, another election, the third in the space of a year, appears to be unavoidable.

    Let Avigdor Lieberman form a minority or majority government. There is no law that says majority votes had to do it . Start thinking not stinking each other . Now we have orthodox list , against Arab list , which both should be out . The rest stay . To my opinion Arabs should be in the government.

      Really? So you are taking Arabs who hate Jews against your Jewish brethren because you hate Judaism. So what are you doing in a Jewish state?

    All political leaders should stop feeding their egos and self interests. think about what’s good for the people of Israel who they supposed to represent, and the state of Israel and her security. Stop the bickering, and form an inclusive strong national government , who’s leader should be determined with a national referendum.

      Nice sentiments, Alex. But few people in Israel, including their political leaders know how far advanced the NWO has come in destabilising the world. They therefore do not know who the real enemies of Israel are and how the safety and security of not only the world but Israel is at stake.

      It’s very simple, the old one-two punch First the mandelblit indictments, then the Mueller report recriminations of Netanyahu and Kushner UN 2334 find the PsyGroup rigging of the 2016 election, for a measly two million dollars to Joel Zamel
