As for the coming election in Israel it seems pretty clear that Netanyahu will be Israel's prime minister again (unless there will be some surprise
in the center-left, but it looks like they are only fighting on the scraps)
Now after the primaries in the likud it seems the Far right is king. Bibi, as Netanyahu is called in Israel, is still king, but he is weakened by the
ultra right wing of the Likud, now merged with war mongering Liberman.
So will Bibi's next government be any different from his last? I think so. If last term Netanyahu paid lip service to the peace process, this time
around he will not be able to.
That will give him way less international legitimacy and support if he wished to strike Iran. and he will have zero diplomatic maneuvering space in
If things continue, this might be an end to the special relationship between Israel and the US (good or bad, you decide)
and on the Palestinian side, their diplomatic effort to gain statehood from the international community will probably be easier. but what it means on
the ground still in unclear.
