Mordechai Kedar, an expert on Israeli and Middle Eastern affairs, said that it is too early to say for sure that Benjamin Netanyahu’s rule will end, because the government that will be formed under the leadership of Yair Lapid will consist of 7 parties that do not agree with each other.
In his speech to an episode of “Beyond the News” program, Kedar added that the odds indicate major differences that will disintegrate the government in the first or second week of its formation, which means Netanyahu will return to power again, and what unites the parties forming the government is Its desire to remove the current prime minister from the political arena.
The Israeli “Blue and White” party led by Benny Gantz signed an agreement to form a government coalition with “There is a Future” party leader Yair Lapid, to be the first parties to sign on forming a government before the mandate expires mid-day on Wednesday to end Benjamin Netanyahu’s control of the premiership.
For her part, the Democratic analyst specializing in US foreign affairs, Michelle Gale, said that the coalition that formed the government in Israel wants to get rid of Netanyahu and work with US President Joe Biden, after relations witnessed a kind of stalemate since the end of the era of former US President Donald Trump.
She added that the new government will work, according to the American vision, to expand work with the Palestinian Authority and stop settlement projects despite the presence of right-wing parties within the government, and Biden prefers to work with Lapid to bring ideas together, which will allow expanding areas of understanding in the future away from Netanyahu’s extremism, which is described as Trumpy.
In turn, an expert in Israeli affairs, Saleh al-Naami, said that about 3 hours remain until the deadline given to Lapid to form a government has not yet been resolved in detailed matters, and this means that it will be a government of paralysis and will not provide anything, and who will head the government is Naftali Bennett, the leader of the Yamina party, who He is known as one of the most extremists among Israel’s politicians.
Al-Naami added that the new government is more extreme than the Netanyahu government, and the goal of its formation is to get rid of the prime minister, but it adopts the same extremist ideas and may override them, and it is difficult to reach any settlement with it in the future.
