Israeli journalist Gideon Levy says that both those who are happy and angry about the formation of the new Israeli government are wrong, and that the departure of outgoing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is neither the end nor the gateway to heaven, and that Israel will wake up to a new day that will be like the previous day.
Commenting on the formation of the new government and reactions to it, Levy wrote in his weekly column in Haaretz that he understands those who feel comfortable or even joyful, but it is difficult to join the childish exaggerations that describe Israel as moving from darkness to light, and from Slavery to freedom, as if it was Alexander Lukashenko who fell and not Benjamin Netanyahu.

He went on to say that the Netanyahu government is disappearing from the political scene (after it was, in recent years, to be replaced by another right-wing government, and one can understand the happiness in removing the Likud from power, given the large number of clowns, and the vision of Miri Regev, who held several ministerial positions in Netanyahu’s governments .
A right without Netanyahu
The writer went on to comment: The new government will have a more efficient and impressive team of ministers, some of whom will try to do their job better, it is interesting, but above all a black and oppressive cloud is hovering: the right will replace the right. A right without Netanyahu will replace Netanyahu, and they are both cruel.
The right will also have unrestricted influence on this government. It does not represent unity or change. It is a right wing, and the process of forming this government heralds what will come next: No one courted the two (left) Meretz and Labor parties during the coalition negotiations, they were in the pockets of the elders They threw transportation and health bags at them, and gave some bribes to the United Arab List, which is difficult to describe as leftist, according to the author.
The writer goes on to describe the scene: Foreign Minister Yair Lapid will travel around the world to take pictures with statesmen, and he will charm all those who desperately want to see Israel as different as it is supposed to, and there will be another illusion like the one propagated by Shimon Peres, Lapid’s predecessor in the role of pretty face For Israel, and this will not only be because of the government behind him, but also because of his positions: Lapid is a rightist, he will stand by almost all the moves of this right-wing government, so why is he complaining? In critical cases, Brother Naftali Bennett will implement Brother Lapid’s policy, and vice versa. What brothers!
Gaza will be suffocated as never before
Levy adds that it is better not to talk too much about Finance Minister Avigdor Lieberman, since Israel did not have such a corrupt right-wing minister, and Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar and Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked will be the face of evil in the new government, and here there will not even be the appearance of mercy and humanity, not to mention On equality, vis-à-vis non-Jews in Israel, Defense Minister Benny Gantz will indeed strangle Gaza as no one has strangled it before.
The writer concludes: Iran, the nation-state law, the rule of law, the defense budget and the settlements will be treated as they were under the previous government, and the remnants of the miserable Zionist left will watch eagerly from the visitors’ balcony.
