#Israel: new elections and a step closer to international sanctions

2 Dec

With an even more right wing government on the way, the boycott Israel campaign will gain more steam and supporters.

Maybe its an ominous sign that the French parliament voted for recognition of a Palestinian state on the very same day that Netanyahu fired his two moderate ministers.

The two fired ministers were comparatively speaking the most pro-peace in his government.

His next government is going to be far more right-wing than the current one which just collapsed. Don’t believe me? see below

According to the Times of Israel, if elections were to be held today, Netanyahu’s Likud party would make gains at the expense of Lapid’s and Livni’s parties.

According to a Channel 10 poll, Likud would win 22 seats, Jewish Home 17, Labor 13, Yisrael Beytenu 12, Moshe Kahlon’s as-yet-unnamed party 12, Yesh Atid nine, the ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism eight, Shas seven, Meretz seven, Hatnua four and the Arab parties 13.

The more right-wing his government will be, the more it will antagonize the Palestinians and the international community by building more settlements. Europe won’t stand for it any more = jump in probability of a major international campaign of sanctions and isolation of Israel.

BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) campaign against Israel is not just coming, with Netanyahu’s next government we’ll be running towards it.
