Israel: the future of a fragile coalition

The March 17, Netanyahu's victory ended up surprised to win the elections against all prognoses that gave the victory to the Zionist Union Party led by Isaac Herzog.

After several weeks of intensive negotiations, the Prime Minister had already secured the support of three parties: the centrists of Kulanu and two ultra Orthodox organizations, United Torah Judaism (UTJ) and Shas. But already during the electoral campaign had left a clear line that would follow. Benjamin Netanyahu assured that "it will then be presented to an international initiative to have borders that existed in 1967, to divide Jerusalem. These are real issues. We need to form a strong national Government, headed by Likud to keep these pressures at a distance ".

And this is really the problem. The pressures will exist and will be made on a Government that has only one member of advantage and at a difficult time for Israel: are the negotiations with Iran and is becoming less strong the Grand Alliance with the United States.

There is little hope that this Executive will achieve any progress in the peace process. The Palestinians are increasingly concerned. Nabil Abu Rdainah, spokesman for the President of the Palestinian Authority maintains that "this is a right-wing Government that defends the settlements, rejects the two-State solution and still stationed in blocking policies. This will be reflected in the region and will be dangerous not only for the Palestinian question but for the entire Middle East policy. "
