’Israeli’ Coalition Members Accuse Netanyahu, Lieberman of Coordinating Crisis

Local Editor

Senior "Israeli" coalition members harshly criticized Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and War Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Monday night, asserting the two are working together to call early elections.


Bibi & Lieberman

The two politicians are expected to meet again on Tuesday in an effort to resolve the crisis, but at present it appears that Lieberman remains firm in his position.

One "Israeli" official called the crisis, which erupted over Haredi parties' insistence to pass an amendment to the "Israeli" army's draft law that would solicit recognition of Torah studies to being equal to military service, a "fake crisis."

"This is Netanyahu's window of opportunity to go to elections under the title 'suspect' rather than 'defendant,'" the official said. "The resuscitation attempts of this coalition are artificial. Netanyahu is working on a date for the elections, not a compromise."

Meanwhile, Netanyahu reached a compromise with Haredi parties, who initially threatened not to support the 2019 year's budget if their bill is not passed in second and third reading before the Knesset's winter session's conclusion on March 18, convincing them to instead settle for a preliminary reading vote-a compromise Lieberman rejected.

Lieberman, who is a minister but not a member of Knesset, said his "Yisrael Beytenu" party will vote against the legislation in its preliminary reading as well as in the second and third readings, which are scheduled to take place in May.


Earlier on Monday, Netanyahu called on Lieberman to make a "supreme effort" to save the government and reach a compromise, but coalition members were not impressed. "Instead of sitting down with Lieberman and trying to resolve the crisis, Netanyahu sat down with Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein to plan the early elections," one coalition member said. "Netanyahu's words at the podium were an act."
