Could This Signal War?

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party submitted a bill to dissolve the Knesset on Wednesday, as Israel's political system readies for upcoming early general elections.

The bill just passed 9 hours ago. It was expect to happen a week from now, but this article say "the move was designed to undermine Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s attempt to promote his bill calling for drafting Haredi citizens." Could there be other reasons as well? Perhaps an attack on Iran is in the works. It could be now or never to the hawks.

Approval of the bill to dissolve the Knesset decision is separate from the decision to declare an election recess, which is the purview of Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin. Rivlin believes that the Knesset should get its election break as soon as possible, by Wednesday at the latest.

Netanyahu and Barak have recently suggested the time for Israel to bomb Iran’s nuclear production sites is now (i.e., at the height of the U.S. presidential campaign when neither candidate would risk losing by criticizing Israel). Netanyahu may even order the attack on May 14th, coinciding with the anniversary of the founding of Israel, to stifle internal criticism. That is only 6.5 days from now.

Hmmm, what other countries do we remember where a powerful hawkish leader dissolved the parliament?

Starts with a G.
Ends in death.

Israel can fight it's own wars. We're about broke here in the U.S. and gearing up for our own troubles to begin.

*It is one reaction.

Is there still an opposition in Israel?

The reasons behind Israel’s new unity government

The formation of a national unity government under Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has taken the world by surprise, with several observers speculating over the implications for the country’s foreign policy.

The Israeli leader has struck an agreement with the country’s main opposition movement, the centrist Kadima Party, to form a coalition with 94 seats out of the 120-member parliament (Knesset). The deal was secretly crafted during a night of intense negotiations with the chairman of Kadima, Shaul Mofaz...

This deal comes at a time of unprecedented tensions between Israel and Iran.
– is this show of unity a way to prepare Israel for an attack on Iran?

U.S. worried that Israel's new unity government could result in an attack on Iran at any given moment.

The United States is worried that Shaul Mofaz and his Kadima party’s joining a unity government with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu could result in an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities at any given moment,
