New Israeli Government Foreign Policy Team: It's Not All Lieberman

In the Israeli political game, there are some things too important to play with. Has new Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu safeguarded Israel’s security and foreign relations while meeting party and coalition needs, and what is the likely result of this new government’s policies internationally?

Netanyahu had to put together a complex web of parties and personalities to get a Knesset majority. The result is a cabinet with more ministers than Jerusalem has rabbis.

Yet equally impressive is that of the 30 ministers, almost half of them will deal with some element of national security or foreign policy. Is this a formula for chaos? Possibly.

Avigdor Lieberman as foreign minister seems a recipe for disaster.

Why do you continue to outright steal other people’s printed works then repost it on FR without a link to the original, and with the link to your url that has a donation link that puts the money directly into your pocket?

You do not even attempt to added commentary or your own original content, you provide no secondary market service, you are simply a thief.

Barry Rubin is a close friend of mine, He happens to end his stuff for me to publish on my blog before it is published elsewhere. Of course you are too busy criticizing others to know that. Also, I NEVER, publish other peoples stuff without linking to the original. So get your head out of your butt and do some research before you critisize
