Netanyahu’s Defeat; Tel Aviv’s Uncertainty

2019/10/24 | interview, political, top news

Strategic Council Online: An international relations professor said the current status of the elections and formation of the government reflects Netanyahu's defeat. Under the current situation, all his concerns is to remain the prime minister and continue to enjoy political and judicial immunity to keep himself and his wife out of court.

Speaking to the website of the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations, Dr. Ahmad Bakhshayesh said: “The Israeli regime has two main parties and four sub-parties. The two main parties are Likud, led by Netanyahu, which has won about 55 seats in its coalition but needs 61 votes to be able to form a cabinet. The other is the Blue and White Party, led by Benny Gantz, with 33 votes and the Arabs about 11 votes.

He said that while Netanyahu was prime minister, he thought he could form government within 28 days. He had contacted Benny Gantz three times and proposed formation of the unity government. He was even willing to hand over good offices to Benny Gantz, for example in the cabinet giving the best positions to the Blue and White Party. Netanyahu and his wife have a series of financial lawsuits which will drag the couple to court. As long as he is prime minister, he is immune and that is why he repeatedly suggested to Benny Gantz that they should form a national unity government.

The international relations professor said Benny Gantz looks set to succeed in forming government, adding that he has been given 28 days to form a government. When Benny Gantz proposes to form a government, he will be the prime minister himself, but will distribute positions.

Referring to Netanyahu’s failure to win six votes in 28 days, he said: “It looks like Benny Gantz is giving the Likud and Lieberman the concessions and with the help of the Arabs he can form his coalition government.”

Bakhshayesh saying the coalition government is usually vulnerable, added: “If the parties fail to form coalition, there should be re-election, in which case the Likud Party would show a weaker performance as it has been in office for three years and is usually blamed for weaknesses.” Under the current conditions in the Zionist regime, Benny Gantz is a demanding party.

On the effects of Zionist regime’s internal failures on Israel’s foreign policy adventures, the professor said: “Israel is strategically backed by the United States because it has always been committed to maintaining Israeli stability and security since 1917 and the Balfour Agreement and after World War II because of the presence of the AIPAC lobby and the wealthy Jews in America. The US has to keep Israel safe anyway.

“Trump is also interested in Netanyahu’s presence, and this will put some pressure on Benny Gantz as he is more focused on domestic issues,” he added. Netanyahu usually focused on foreign policy to divert domestic affairs, such as attacking Lebanon, Syria and Iraq when the election was near, but Benny Gantz is more concerned with Israeli society than Netanyahu. It seems that since his government would be fresh and he has a military background, he will be more concerned with domestic issues.

The international relations professor said the current status of the elections and formation of the government reflects Netanyahu’s defeat. Under the current situation, all his concerns is to remain the prime minister and continue to enjoy political and judicial immunity to keep himself and his wife out of court. Obviously, they will most likely be brought to court after the cabinet of Benny Gantz is formed and Netanyahu’s failure to become prime minister is announced even if he gets a post in government.

Trump worked hard so that Netanyahu will win the election. Trump helped him a lot. His position was entirely in Netanyahu’s favor, but during the formation of the government, Trump was dealing with the impeachment affair.

As for the future state of Zionist foreign regime, he said: “This regime will be a little more conservative, but Israel’s survival will depend on insecurity for others, so its overall policy is to create insecurity.” Having a strategic alliance with the US and attracting its support and creating insecurity around it to stay on the scene are the general policy of this regime.
