Shimon Peres was right: "the is," he said, after Benjamin Netanyahu in 1999, had a choice, and thus, after three years, the office of the Prime Minister lost. Ten years it should last before Netanyahu had fought on the government. This time Netanyahu had written off many, as only a few weeks before the ballot, the threat of Corruption charges made public have been, and his Challenger, Benny Gantz led the polls already, as he had no programme and no party.
But Netanyahu had already survived all kinds of scandals and the current allegations of corruption, he simply ignored. If necessary, he presented himself as the victim of a "witch-hunt". The 69-Year-old struggled with his own recklessness, with a mixture of egoism, chauvinism, populism and nationalism. Be a legal national of the Likud is the main responsible for the fact that it was a dirty election campaign.
The Likud sent 1200 activists with hidden cameras in polling stations
But Netanyahu has managed, many people believe that only he could provide security, prosperity and a high Reputation of Israel in the world. Aid afforded US President Donald Trump by the illegal recognition of the Golan heights as part of Israel and the President of Russia Vladimir Putin by the support for the repatriation of the human Remains of a 1982 in Lebanon killed Israeli soldiers.
in fact, Netanyahu may not have good relations with the United States and Russia. The economy is flourishing, and Israel enjoys an excellent reputation worldwide as a Start-up Nation. Diplomatic relations with Arab countries such as Oman or the United Arab Emirates, he has improved. Even if he is regarded in Europe as a warmonger, Netanyahu has stood the least resistance, ten days ago, the temptation to send in the military in a military conflict with Hamas. This is to give him his due. Because a large part of the Israelis has criticized his reaction as too lax.
Seriously to take his announcement shortly before the election, to Annex parts of the West Bank. He wants to explain not only the settlement blocs to Israeli territory, but also isolated Outpost. That would be the deathblow for the Two-state solution. The coalition partners with whom Netanyahu together now, remind him of his promise. It was now, according to its own Definition of rightest government in the history of Israel, the new coalition will be back with the inclusion of extremists such as the party of Jewish strength even further to the right. The Arab minority is the get to feel.
That last summer adopted national state law excludes a fifth of the population, and even on election day the Arab Israelis got confirmed that they are not regarded as equal citizens. The Likud sent 1200 activists with hidden cameras in polling stations, in which Arab Israelis cast their votes, and came in breach of the right to a secret ballot. That this action by Israel was justified, it was necessary, "to be fair options ," undermines the Foundation of democracy.
is determined against him, he attacks the police and the judiciary and calls into question the rule of law. He presents himself to the victim and makes "the media" and "the Left" to his enemy. But Netanyahu is not above the law. Should there be a prosecution and a conviction, then he has to resign. As long as he can in the political top hold position, are likely to decide the dishes. But in the summer he has reached his goal, to be longer than the state founder David Ben-Gurion in the office.
Netanyahu has to answer in his term of office, the division of society and the Erosion of institutions. That Jewish settlements were expanded and the promise to the Palestinians to get a state of their own, in his term of office is not realised was, as well. This is the legacy he leaves behind – no matter how long he remains in office.
