Political divisions causing instability, cases of bribery, fraud and breach of trust against Prime Minister Netanyahu has been threatening his government. For example four Knesset (parliament) elections were held in a span of two years: in April 2019, September 2019, March 2020 and March 2021. However no stable government yet.
Following last March elections Netanyahu was tasked to form a new government. However neither he nor his opponents possess a majority in parliament due to different interests and personal animosities.
The last election made it clear that the new Israeli kingmaker is none other than Mansour Abbas, the leader of the Islamic party Ra’am. Netanyahu was ready to form a government with him just to sustain his primacy, with the hope that this may help him stay out of prison. Meanwhile an alternative centrist coalition also can’t be formed without the support of Abbas.
According to reports hardcore rightwing within the Israeli Knesset do understand that such political power in the hands of an Islamic party empowers their bitterest enemies. It is destined to bring many more Israeli Arabs to the polls in the next election and if Arabs in Israel enjoy the same political representation as the Jewish majority, they can easily become the biggest political force in Israel.
To turn the country’s attention to overcome the situation Netanyahu precipitated the case of evicting Palestinians families from their homes and settle Jewish migrants there. When controversy over this case of heating up he thought sent troops to storm Masjid al Aqsa during the holy month of Ramadan and precipitated the present conflict killing Palestinians which has been blood sports for Zionists .
