Ali Abdi, in an interview with the website of the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations, referred to the Zionist regime’s attacks on Gaza and its internal consequences and said: For at least the past 20 years, the far-right approach has prevailed in that regime and it seems that the conflicts that have taken place will intensify the rightism within inside it. In fact, the radical right is amplified by the sharpening of the general approach.
Possibility of strengthening far right
The analyst of the Zionist regime’s affairs addressed some criticisms and oppositions within the regime as well as in Western countries regarding the Israeli crimes and said: However, those currents are practically marginalized and become inactive. We almost saw its effect on the election and the next government of that regime, and after the attacks on Gaza were launched, Naftali Bennett, the leader of the Yamina Party, who was negotiating to form a coalition as he approached the Lapid Party, announced he would exit the middle and left camps and would return to the right and would negotiate with Netanyahu.
Abdi continued: Bennett had stated in explaining the reasons for this decision that Lapid is negotiating with the Arab party! Because the atmosphere is tense and against the Palestinians, therefore, he has made such a decision.
At the same time, he said: Of course, Yamina joining Netanyahu will not be able to put 61 seats at the disposal of Netanyahu to be successful in forming a government, but in any case, it will change the balance of power to the detriment of the center and left current and would marginalize them; a current that, at least, claims to accept the Arabs and achieve lasting peace. However, they are not honest in their claims.
Exacerbation of bipolar situation in Israel
The expert on the Zionist regime’s affairs, stating that the atmosphere will move faster and it is not unlikely to end in Netanyahu’s favor, added: Of course, it is still too early to judge; but with the intensification and continuation of the war, it is not unlikely that the formation of the government will face a crisis and we will be witness to the fifth election. In such an atmosphere, Netanyahu will definitely be better off and may be able to form a cabinet in the fifth election.
Explaining the bipolar atmosphere in the occupied territories, Abdi pointed to the intense tension in the Zionist regime’s networks between the Israeli Arabs and the Israelis, and said: There have even been clashes in live television programs, to the extent that the settlers beat the reporters of Israel Channel 11 because they broadcast scenes of the beating of an Israeli Arab citizen by the Zionists, which shows how hostile and bipolar the situation is.
He addressed the criticisms leveled at the Zionist regime by political groups and public opinion in different countries, including the remarks of a member of the US Congress, and stressed: The criticisms leveled at the Zionists do not matter to them and all those actions in their view are quite justifiable.
The expert on the Zionist regime’s affairs added: The fact is that in the past 20 years, the Israeli society has been immersed in the atmosphere of extremist rightism and the general tendency does not welcome those who claim the middle and left positions and acceptance of the Palestinians and achieving peace is one of their thoughts. In fact, from the Israeli point of view, the Palestinian issue has been resolved and Israel has won. The Arab states are extremely weak and no one can stand against Israel. In fact, Israel basically does not see itself in a situation where it needs to make concessions, and thus only has to make concessions!
Abdi continued: When a regime sees itself in such a situation, it will never move towards negotiations and granting concessions, and in view of the Israelis, the Palestinians are forced to come to terms with them under any situation.
Referring to some news about the possibility of a ceasefire this week between the two sides and Hamas emphasis on the need for accepting their terms, he said: Certainly, the Israelis welcome the ceasefire without giving any concessions and are counting the seconds for it and are willing to have the ceasefire through power mediation without giving the slightest concession; but we are witnessing resistance of the Palestinians who are looking for concessions.
Zionist regime inevitable to give concessions if resistance continues
Abdi explained that continuation of the conflict and the current process will force Israel to concede and accept the ceasefire and said: Continuing this path for a week or 10 more days will show the economic and psychological consequences in Israeli society and this regime will inevitably accept certain conditions of the other party and the ceasefire.
He said: The process of developments imposes those conditions on the Zionist regime. In fact, we are witnessing the popularization of the resistance and new developments in Jordan, Lebanon and the neighboring countries of the occupied Palestine; so that people show their anger by gathering on the borders. With the spread of those protests, if new fronts are opened in Lebanon and Syria, Israel will be in a really bad situation, and it is in its interest to accept a ceasefire as soon as possible, otherwise it will suffer irreparable consequences.
Emphasizing that those conflicts will have consequences in the region, the expert on the Zionist regime’s affairs explained: One side of this issue is the axis of resistance. In view of the Zionist regime, in fact, those conflicts are the settlement of Iran and the axis of resistance with that regime.
Abdi said: The process of those events will definitely be in the interest of the resistance, and the conditions of tension and the pressure that we witnessed during the Trump era have become an active role-playing.
