As the founders said, certain truths are “self evident.” There is no justification for what Speaker Edelman did.
Netanyahu is a desperate man and desperate men will do anything to cling on to power.
Netanyahu knows once the Knesset opens, Edelman will be ousted and replaced by a member of Blue and White, which will give Gantz control of the legislative process. Once that happens, a bill will pass rendering Knesset Members under indictment ineligible to hold any ministry including Prime Minister. Netanyahu will be kicked to the curb.
Netanyahuy and Edelman know this and are acting in the manner of desperate men. This is self evident and I will not engage in any attempt to prove what every reasonable person already knows.
As the previous poster indicated, Gantz got 61 Members (an outright majority of the 120 Member Knesset) to support his bid to form a government. As he has the support of a majority, President Rivlin was obligated to give him the first chance to form a government.
prison isn’t in his future. the allegations against him are fairly minor and politics as usual. Israel is going through its own problems with the opposition trying to make politics they don’t like illegal. it all revolves around press coverage from a pro bb publication. i guess they have their own “fake news” from the left and right. unless thats changed, thats what i had read about it a while back.
Spend a year or so over there, their entire system is insane and liberal academia in this country has nothing on their compartriots in Israel who are living under the delusion that if it became official policy to placate the terrorists suddenly everything would be back to “Land of Milk and Honey” in the Holy Land.
Either they are just stupid or they flat have no concept of the fact the Muslim Terrorists and their Supporters have no intention of quitting until the last Jew is Dead or Driven into the sea.
The Athiest or otherwise non religious Jewish Academics that refuse to be converted by force would be among the first to be killed if the Islamists ever gained control.
