Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this Thursday desperately tried through his social networks to torpedo the agreement reached by various political forces on Wednesday to remove him twelve years later, and called on the right to join this “dangerous left-wing government “to oppose.
“All members of the Knesset (Israeli parliament) elected by the vote of the right must oppose this dangerous left government,” wrote Netanyahu on Twitter, who is also the right-wing leader and next prime minister for Naftali for the next two years Bennett for “selling” the Negev region to the Common Arab List.
Netanyahu has held a number of meetings in the past few hours with members of his party, the Likud, and with his allies, most of them militant far-right formations and religious fundamentalists such as the United Judaism of the Torah and Shaz trying to establish the next one, stop the formation of a new government, which is expected to take at least another week.
At this “emergency meeting”, the possibility of calling mass demonstrations against the coalition led by Yair Lapid, reveals the Times of Israel.
Meanwhile, hundreds of people have gathered near the homes of Nir Orbach and Ayelet Shaked, deputy and deputy of Yamina, the right-wing formation that, along with the Joint Arab League, supported Yair Lapid’s proposal for a government.
The protests outside Shaked’s Tel Aviv home were led by the far right Religious Zionist Party leader Bezalel Smotrich, a former Yamina MP, who insisted on the “betrayal” Yamina would wreak on Israel by supporting this coalition.
Lapid managed to form a government in Israel just before midnight on Wednesday, ending the Netanyahu era that had been in office for twelve years. The coalition will eventually consist of a colorful amalgam of parties including Blue and White, the Labor Party, Yisrael Beiteinu, Meretz and New Hope, as well as Yesh Atid, Yamina and the Common Arab List.
The coalition was announced after Joint Arab List leader Mansur Abbas gave his support late Wednesday.
