In recent days, it has been reported that Yamina leader Naftali Bennett will agree to form a coalition together with Meretz, New Hope, Blue and White, Yesh Atid, and a variety of other Israeli political parties, who do not share much ideologically. Short of Levin postponing the vote or infighting among these various parties over portfolios, it appears that Yamina leader Naftali Bennett could be Israel’s next Prime Minister. 

On his Facebook page, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned Bennett for agreeing to form a coalition together with Meretz and Yair Lapid: “Most of Bennett’s voters would not vote for him if they knew what he would do. It is still not too late to regret and to establish a right wing government.”  

Israeli Transport Minister Miri Regev (Likud) added: “This morning, I turn to Ayelet Shaked and call upon her to stop at the last moment the galloping of the right to a dangerous left-wing government in Israel.  If you do not do this, then you will be disgraced for generations for overthrowing a right-wing government.” Regev concluded by quoting from the Book of Esther: “And who knows if you were chosen to become queen for a time such as this?” 

MK Ayelet Shaked, Yamina’s number two, is more hesitant about joining together in a coalition with Lapid and Meretz than Bennett is. According to the Times of Israel, Shaked is conditioning her support for a Lapid-Bennett coalition on her getting appointed to the justice selection panel instead of MK Merav Michaeli, who is known for her radical left-wing views. 

To date, Shaked has not commented publicly on the potential of Yamina joining in a coalition with Yesh Atid and Meretz. In the past, she told Walla News: “This isn’t an easy political event for me, but at the moment there is no other choice. I made every effort to form a right wing government and still haven’t said it’s hopeless.”

Following this development, Ayoob Kara (Likud), who served as Israel’s Communication, Satellite and Cyber Minister, proclaimed on Israeli TV: “Bennett today turned into the new and improved Alex Goldflum, who gave up his political ideology in exchange for a cheap car during the Oslo period, thus leading to the elimination of the Israeli right-wing camp.  The Oslo Goldflum agreement was the biggest disaster that the left brought on in Israel and it passed in the Knesset thanks to the theft of right-wing votes, especially those going to Alex Goldflum, who thus received a better portfolio and a car thanks to his betrayal of his voters.”

In an exclusive interview, Kara noted that today there are two options ahead for the State of Israel: “One option is that they are successful. Different parties that don’t have any connection, any ideology and any value suddenly, they are together. I believe it will be for a short period of time. It could be days, weeks, months, not more than that.”

Kara believes that the other option is more feasible: “Lapid did not succeed to say so far that I am successful to the president. That means that he does not have an answer and mandate till next week to present to the government. Why? Because all of these parties cannot be together.”

According to Kara, Yamina is a traitor to its voters on the right side of the political map: “Yamina and the Arab parties cannot go together. All of this coalition is from the right to the left. This is something that has not happened in all of the history of Israel because in the history, the point was who was successful to form a mandate and to arrange the governing coalition. Sometimes, you have the mandate and you are successful more than anyone. If not, the second party leads, but it has not happened that a specific party leads because they hate the prime minister.”

Kara does not think that Yesh Atid and Yamina will succeed to lead in this situation, especially given that such a government would need the support of Ra’am or the Joint Arab List to be able to form a government successfully. Shaked has already clashed with Ra’am over some of their demands and the other Arab parties have even less prospect of successfully being included in a governing coalition.

“No way will they be successful,” Kara proclaimed. “The one option is that the president sends the mandate back to the government and the Knesset got 21 days to agree about the prime minister.  Anyone who gets 61 votes will form the coalition. But I am sure that this is also difficult. The other option after 21 days is to go to a new election. If we go to a new election, Sa’ar and Bennett will be deleted from the political map. Maybe they will take votes, but not from the right side.”
