The only thing certain about Israel is the failure within the nation to create a government that represents both domestic and foreign policies that will bring prosperity and peace to the people of the nation. Most observers have lost track as to the number of “ministers with portfolios” who currently constituted the Cabinet of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In order to forge a government, Bibi has given “government portfolios” to just about every group in order to get the 61 seats necessary to form a “majority government.” There are Cabinet officials who seek to focus on restoring economic sense, there are Cabinet ministers whose main goal is protecting the rights of religious Jews not to serve in the army and to receive government benefits in order to “study the Torah.”
There is no coherent foreign policy that would center upon working in a cooperative manner with the Obama administration. Instead, the goal of Netanyahu is to work with Republican congressmen in order to have them take over foreign policy in America. What could Netanyahu do?
1. Work with the Zionist Union led by Isaac Herzog and form a government that would work for peace with Palestinians and end the control of religious fanatics in Israel. There is no difference between a Muslim clergy and a Jewish clergy when it comes to focusing upon uniting a nation by including those who do not believe clergy should be in government.
2. How about apologizing to President Obama and appointing an ambassador who is not the buddy of Republicans in Congress?
