Without the ultra-Orthodox parties propping up a government, would Israel be more willing to make Palestine related concessions.

No, the Haredi have different priorities and are not particularly right wing on such matters. Opposition to concessions would come from the Jewish Home or from within the Likud.

Roseanne Barr scheduled to address the Knesset next month, because this timeline we’re in isn’t bizarre enough.

We should bring in anyone who hates homosexuals, black people etc as long as they like Jews to our parliament! I mean, LGBTQ and Ethiopian Israelis have no feelings.

I'm mean this at the very least is false. I'm pretty sure she doesn't "hate" black people either just has stupid and prejudiced views (which is definitely wrong).

I'm not just talking about her. I'm talking about Bolsanoro too, who got a visit from Bibi in his inauguration, and other repugnant leaders and figures my government loves flirting with.
And yeah, I know she doesn't hate anyone, it was a hyperbole Tongue

42% of Israel supports an act that 81% believe will result in all out war in the region?

Such a peaceful nation we must pray for.

Anything they do as a nation will lead to war because they're surrounded by Muslim supremacists who just want another genocide against the Jewish people.

Thank you for quoting a 7 year old post so that you could enlighten us with that highly sophisticated take on the situation in the middle east.

So, if push comes to shove, who do you believe Gantz would be willing to join a coalition with?

I imagine his ideal coalition would be with Lapid and Kachlon as a three-part "Third Way" leadership group. They would then probably bring over ZU to avoid having to deal with Netanyahu or any of the far-right parties, but beyond that it gets tricky. The Arabs are flat-out and the Ultra-Orthodox won't be willing to work in any way with Lapid.

Met him on several occasions, was a great author and speaker. His brand of pragmatic progressivism just didn’t speak to growing number of illiberal Jews especially the immigrants from the ME and the former USSR

I have no doubt their future aim is merging with Likud.

I suspect that  "progressive" and "pacifist" sound like insults to many ears in Israel. It's a terrible zeitgeist

The world needs more pragmatic progressives like him. You are lucky for having met Amos Oz

How difficult is it not to display this stupid nonsense and damage Israel's reputation in the process, seriously. People need to use their brains.

If it's any consolation, these types do this sort of stuff with Judaism all the time as well. Museums that do this should lose their government subsidies.

The way all the other countries that had this display were harmed? any danger to reputation would be for being a country where free expression is censored because of religious fanatics. This display wasn't even trying to mock Christianity, but in any case I think you should be able to criticise and mock religion just like any other ideology.

Yep, no one should care if any Christian fundamentalist in America or Canada thinks it's blasphemous, because we're a free country. The only problem I see right now is that people are afraid to do to Islam what they do to Christianity and Judaism, but that's something else that shouldn't be fixing by catering to all religious extremists, but rather to none of them.
