Picture of the Day






I almost feel bad for PM Netanyahu. he suffered a crushing, and somewhat surprising, defeat this evening in the Knesset. Not only did he lose in his own vote for the Knesset Arrangements Committee with the Raam party voting against Netanyahu's proposal for the makeup of the committee, but then he lost when Raam voted in favor of Lapid's proposal for the committee.

Netanyahu had put so much into bringing Raam into the Likud coalition, at least as external support, and in the first relevant vote am voted twice against Netanyahu.

I don't know what Raam's game is. Did they just get a better, more attractive offer from Lapid? Have they been stringing Netanyahu along all this time and just playing him for a fool? Did they do this just to remind Netanyahu of the position they hold and are letting him know not to fool with them?

  1. Mansour Abbas of Raam just announced that they voted as they did because of Smotritch's attitude towards them and that they wont be his punching bag any longer.
