Israeli Government On Verge Of Collapse

The showdown that’s threatening to bring down the Israeli government deepened over the weekend, resulting in the rare cancellation of the cabinet’s weekly Sunday meeting.

The latest spat between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party and Defense Minister Benny Gantz’s Blue and White revolves around Likud’s proposed 8.5 billion-shekel ($2.5 billion) supplement to the government’s coronavirus relief program. Gantz said the details of the expensive program are incomplete, while Likud says Blue and White is withholding much-needed aid from Israeli citizens.

The dispute is part of a larger feud that’s clouding the coalition’s survival. The government is required by law to pass a budget by late August, but Netanyahu is balking at honoring a provision in their coalition agreement to craft a two-year spending plan.

  2. The Leftist government is run by the self-appointed radical leftist anti-Torah pro Arab judges of the supreme court of injustice currently with Bibi as their puppet. As long as they don’t get rid of those judges the government will fall.
