Binyamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman announced Thursday evening in a joint news conference that they would join forces in a unified party.
Netanyahu explained that Israel would be better off with a strong coalition that leans on a strong party. "We ask the public for a clear mandate to carry out the social and economic changes that the nation of Israel expects, and justifiably so," he said.
"There is a lot that needs to be done," Netanyahu added. "First and foremost bring down the cost of living. This is the time to project strength in the face of our enemies and unity within us. The prime minister of Israel needs a large, united force behind him."
Lieberman also said that the challenges facing Israel "require one thing governability and stability." Lieberman said that the coalition of the past four years was one of the most stable in Israel's history, if not the most stable. "We spoke about a reform in government," he said. "Real governmental reform begins today."
"We are giving the citizens of Israel a real opportunity to stabilize the government," he said.

Likud and Beiteinu won’t come close to a majority. They’ll still need religious parties and splinters.
Seems like same old, same old, with Beiteinu replacing Kadima.
If it were JOE Lieberman, that *would* be some united party...
I like Ehud Barak as Defense Minister.
Two of my favorite Israeli pols - Bibi and Lieberman. Excellent.
I hope this coalition pulls in a huge victory. Unification in Israel will be very important during the next few years.
Come to think of it, the same is true here.
“I like Ehud Barak as Defense Minister.”
He hasn’t rousted anyone you know in the middle of the night and destroyed their homes. He isn’t keeping anyone you know from taking possession of a building they bought fair and square, while the broker sits on death’s row for selling land to Jooos! . You like Ehud Barak because he once knew how to deploy a column of tanks or some damned thing. I despise him for his tyranical, politicized abuse of the power aloted to him, which is entirely too much. Bibi and Lieberman enable this. If they want to stay in power, fine, so long as Ehud gets the boot.
