Quote of the Day

this is a double, as both are connected and needed for this...


The Haredim are making a massive mistake saying they will recommend Gantz. They are hurting their own chances to be in the next coalition. The Haredim have a maximum ceiling of 16 mandates, only the Likud can bring in the mandates to complete a government of 61... The Haredim will sit with as int he coalition as good children..

  -- MK Miki Zohar (Likud)


Actually I see that in the Likud they are all good children. Whoever speaks out of turn gets slapped down. What he said was not proper, not appropriate, and not friendly

  -- MK Moshe Gafni (UTJ), in response to MK Zohar

is it immoral or not?

One of the main attacks on Naftali Bennett over the past year by the Opposition is that as leader of a party of 6 seats (which over the course of the year also got increasingly smaller) it is immoral for him to Prime Minister and it is opportunistic and taking advantage of the situation. 

I find it somewhat ironic that some in the Opposition, after spending a year screaming at Bennett for this, are willing to find an alternative government by offering either Gideon Saar or Benny Gantz the first round of a rotation arrangement as Prime Minister. And now UTJ is making some noises as well suggesting that if Netanyahu should fail to achieve the support of 61 Knesset members after the election, they would no longer remain loyal to him but would look for alternatives, including recommending Benny Gantz as Prime Minister.

So when Bennett did it, it was immoral, but when it is good for them it is perfectly legitimate. Maybe when Bennett did it they considered it immoral because it left them behind and it really isnt immoral...

Olam Hafuch Raiti

The deal being worked on (or maybe arrived at by now) is strange and seems counter-intuitive. MK Netanyahu (Likud) decided to oppose the law proposal for the dispersal of the Knesset today due to being unsatisified with some of the legislation being pushed through at the last minute, including the law proposal to prevent someone indicted from running for Prime Minister.

The Coalition heads seem to have decided to make a deal to scrap the law proposal about someone indicted running for PM in exchange for support for the dispersal of the Knesset.

So, the coalition that should theoretically want to continue for longer is  fighting for dispersal, while the Opposition that should want the dispersal sooner is fighting for the government to stay on longer. The coalition that has wanted to pass a law to prevent someone indicted from running for PM is willing to give that up in exchange for faster dispersal of the Knesset.

As the Talmud says, Olam Hafuch Ra'iti - an upside down world I have seen...

Proposed Law: National Service for affirmative action

This past week has seen a slurry of law proposals trying to get in under the deadline of the government dispersing.

MK Nir Barkat (Likud) has proposed an interesting law.. Barkat's proposal is that affirmative action, such as regarding university acceptance and public sector hiring, will only apply to  people who have served the country, either via serving in the IDF or in Sherut Leumi, National Service.

Barkat explains that it makes no sense that people who did not serve the country and then wave the Palestinian flag and call out against the State of Israel should get priority acceptance to jobs and university. This is in light of the recent hullabaloo of Arabs waving the PLO flag, especially in Jerusalem and on Har Habayit.

What makes this an especially interesting proposal is that it is sure to upset the Likud's natural partners, UTJ (and Shas but less so), who have stood by the Likud over the past few years through thick and thin.. I wait to see the reactions to this..
