Israels largest opposition party is negotiating the terms for a possible unity government, a senior Zionist Camp official said on Tuesday.
Speaking with Army Radio, Tzipi Livni (Zionist Camp) confirmed that her party was in talks with the Netanyahu government over a possible unity coalition.
I was shown things [brought up] in the talks, [but] were not finalized, Livni said.
A senior Likud official confirmed the negotiations to expand the governing coalition, telling party chiefs already in the government that they would have to make concessions if the Zionist Camp does join.
Every party will have to do its part and give up on some [ministerial] portfolios in order to enlarge the coalition. The portfolios held by the Jewish Home are certainly on the table.
Jewish Home chief Naftali Bennett threatened to bolt the coalition should Netanyahu demand the Justice Ministry portfolio, currently held by Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home).

Livni is their version of Hitlery Clinton. She is evil.
I agree with your analysis, Eleutheria.
It’s no secret that Netanyahu has moved farther left over time. But the only reason for a ‘unity’ government is to make unimaginable concessions to Arabs, such as giving up Jerusalem.
Keep in mind what happened to Ariel Sharon when he bowed to UN and Arab pressure.
Perhaps I should have done all caps.
She’s also incredibly stupid, and keeps sticking her foot in her mouth.
If Bennet doesn’t walk out on a plan to cede Jerusalem, he’s not a man.
If you'd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Haaretz reports that Herzog would become Foreign Minister and have authority over ‘peace’ negotiations.
Immigration Absorption and Jerusalem Affairs Minister Ze'ev Elkin (Likud) spoke about reported plans to create a national unity government with the left-wing Zionist Union.
"There are many versions of this story going around. It's important for us as a government to continue our policies, and let any who want join. We can't expand the government at the cost of giving up our ideology," he told Arutz Sheva.
Elkin took the opportunity to launch a barb at the internal conflicts within the Zionist Union party. "Everyone in the Labor Party is currently busy killing each other. When they're free, they should make up their minds."

"Most of the public now understands that withdrawals don't bring anything but human destruction, less security, and many more problems. I hope that we will not repeat this mistake and that we will not withdraw any more from our lands."
Maybe she’ll choke on it.
