Steering back to the subject at hand.
This “plan” was nothing more than the pile coming out from behind a cow. A desperate ploy by a desperate man who is flailing about in a desperate attempt to hold on to power.
The only people who support this “plan” are Netanyahu’s hard core political supporters and their allies in the United States in the Evangelical community.
The Palestinians obviously panned it. The remaining international community panned it.
All this “plan” was ever about was distracting the Israeli public from Netanyahu’s legal woes and drumming up political support for Netanyahu’s party and allies.
And it failed epically on both counts.
Moreover, Netanyahu is in no political position to be offering such a plan. He is merely Prime Minister in a care taking role. His only mandate is to see that the Israeli government runs from day to day. He holds no parliamentary mandate to wield broader power. He has failed after two elections to form a government. And it looks like the third fail will be a true strike out for him. Virtually zero chance that he will gain a parliamentary majority to form a government and with him surrendering immunity voluntarily (to avoid the humiliation of being stripped of immunity when the next Knesset convenes), he will likely be well on the way to trial during the months of parliamentary negotiation in the next Knesset.
Netanyahu might be wise to accept a deal that would spare him prison in exchange for his immediate and permanent retirement from politics and public life.
