Netanyahu trying to break another promise

According to a report in Srugim, it looks like Netanyahu is trying to find a way out of his promise to Idit Silman for her part in bringing down the government. Netanyahu promised Silman a guaranteed slot on the Likud list for Knesset.

Netanyahu has found a creative way to get the Silman problem off his back - he offered her as a compromise in the Ben Gvir - Smotritch dispute as a neutral candidate for the 7th slot on their joint list.

Right now that is off the table, with Ben Gvir having announced the end of negotiations and his going it alone, but it could come back as the deadline for party list submissions nears.

Breaking this promise is dangerous. If he does find a way out of it, if he cant form the next government and tries to bring down whatever government does form, he will have a much harder time finding defectors willing to trust him with their future.

Netanyahu is no different than any other politician, and maybe worse than most in this regard. He is a serial promise-breaker. I dont know why anyone trusts him with their future.

  1. Did anyone believe that Bibi was going to deliver on this promise. Didn't she claim that her decision was based on her conscience and not for political gain?

    She was a sacrificial pawn that no longer has any value to bring to the table. As an MK her only credentials are as a turncoat. To join another political party she has to give up her MK job. That means she leaves any money she could potentially bring with her, with Zionist Spirit.

    She brought this upon herself. She may have a hard time finding a new political home with a realistic chance of making it into the next Knesset.

  2. Why feel sorry for her? She deserves worse. Nobody would vote for her. Bibi proved to all that she has no principles and no loyalty. Good riddance.
