Early Elections May Help Netanyahu Get Rid of (Ehud) Barak

If Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu calls early elections, Ehud Barak, a thorn in the coalition’s official backing of Judea and Samaria, could be left out in the cold.

The trigger for possible elections later this year is the movement for changing the military draft system, whose critics have targeted exemptions or shorter terms of service for young men studying Torah. The Prime Minister said Sunday he backs military service for all Jews and civilian service of Arabs,

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with leaders of the “suckers’ rally” that has staged a week-long demonstration opposite his office. Protest leaders said he told them that if he is not able pass legislation for universal military service, he would campaign for it in the next elections. He said he will decide in the next two weeks, with the most probable early election date being this fall. The government's term of office expires next year.

The office of the Prime Minister stated, "The division of the burden must be changed. What has been is not what will be…. The ‘Tal Law’ will be replaced by a more egalitarian and just law, and I will submit it. The new law will also include civilian service for Arabs.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu said for the first time on Saturday night that he will not hesitate to go to elections if the coalition partners try to blackmail him over the issue of military service. Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, head of Yisrael Beiteinu, threatened on Saturday to leave the coalition over the matter of the Tal Law. ......

Bibi wants Ehud Barak in his government, though. I wish there were a way to be shut of the two of them.

Why? I have a lot of admiration for Bibi.

There is legislation in the works to require Arab claimants that settlements were built on their land to actually prove that they own it, and to substitute compensating the Arab claimant monetarily for bulldozing the Jews’ homes in the middle of the night. Bibi is opposed to this, and has done everything he can to kill the proposed law.

This is also the man who wanted to give the whole of Hebron to the Arabs, and only by dint of an intensive protest campaign did we get to keep 3% of it. After 18 months of constant rifle fire aimed at the Jewish parts of Hebron (a six month old infant was killed in her stroller), the IDF engaged the enemy in an intensive firefight. 24 soldiers were killed, along with their commander, but IDF now controls all the militarily important high ground.

Arabs do get access to the holy sites in the Jewish part of Hebron, so long as they either live in the area or go through a metal detector, but Jews get no access whatever to the holy sites in the Arab parts of Hebron. You admire Bibi? He made some nice speeches at the UN? Give him a job in America. I want him gone.

Sounds like you need your own “Ronald Reagan”, just like we need him back and not Mitt W. Romney.

We need him more urgently. If Jimmuh had been reelected, America would have been in the toilet for a long, long time. But it would have continued to exist. If we have a Jimmuh over here, that’s the end. Ehud Barak when he was PM came very close to being Jimmuh. He should not be in any position of public responsibility, and Bibi is hell-bent to keep him, and thereby keep the Druze IDFers busy dispossessing Jewish families.
