Israeli Parliament Approves Netanyahu as Prime Minister

Posted by valecardia su 1 aprile, 2009

WASHINGTON POST

JERUSALEM, March 31 — Israel’s parliament on Tuesday approved Binyamin Netanyahu as prime minister, ushering in a government at odds with international expectations that Israel should pursue negotiations that would lead to an independent Palestinian state.

Netanyahu’s government — a coalition that includes nationalist, ultra-Orthodox and social democratic factions, as well as his own Likud party — says it represents an electorate that has soured on peace talks with the Palestinians, grown weary over rocket fire from Islamist groups in the Gaza Strip, and become increasingly worried about Iranian influence and nuclear technology.

Labor Votes To Join Netanyahu Coalition

Posted by valecardia su 25 marzo, 2009

WASHINGTON POST

JERUSALEM, March 24 — Israel’s Labor Party voted Tuesday to join the coalition government of incoming Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in a pairing of historical opponents sealed by a round of political haggling.

Led by Defense Minister Ehud Barak, a former prime minister, Labor delegates agreed that their 13 recently elected Knesset members would help Netanyahu form a majority in the Israeli parliament. The deal gives Netanyahu a bloc of at least 66 votes in the 120-member body, but even more importantly, it brings a sense of ideological diversity to a coalition that would otherwise have been narrowly drawn. Barak will remain as defense minister. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Israel’s defence minister faces test over coalition push

TEL AVIV

Ehud Barak, Israel’s outgoing defence minister, faces a crucial test today in his attempt to have his Labor party join Israel’s next government. But analysts warned that the results could lead to the possible collapse of Mr Barak’s once-dominant movement. The centre-left party holds an important internal vote today on whether to approve Mr Barak’s push for it to become part of what is shaping up to be a right-wing governing coalition headed by Benjamin Netanyahu, the designated next Israeli premier and leader of the hawkish Likud party. Analysts said Mr Barak and Mr Netanyahu were going to become the main beneficiaries from a union of Labor and Likud. Mr Barak would get to keep his current post as defence minister and avoid risking becoming irrelevant in a parliamentary opposition that would likely be led by Tzipi Livni, the head of the bigger Kadima faction. Mr Netanyahu would be able to govern a larger coalition that would be less susceptible to political collapse. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Israel’s Netanyahu signs up Shas

Posted by gaetanoditommaso su 23 marzo, 2009

BBC NEWS

23 March 2009

Ultra-Orthodox Jewish party Shas has signed an agreement to join the Israeli coalition being put together by Likud party leader Benjamin Netanyahu.

Mr Netanyahu has a deadline of 3 April to build his coalition government.

He has already reached a deal with far-right leader Avigdor Lieberman and talks are planned with Labour, headed by Ehud Barak, and other small parties.

He plans to build a broad based team, or failing that a coalition of right-wing and Jewish nationalist parties.

Talks have so far not proved successful with the largest party in the 10 February election – Kadima – which insists Mr Netanyahu sign up to the two-state formula which has underpinned more than 15 years of Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts.

Analysts say a right-wing coalition would be more susceptible to political extortion by small hard-line parties. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Israeli right joins coalition bid

Posted by gaetanoditommaso su 26 febbraio, 2009

BBC NEWS

26 February 2009

Israel’s Likud party has met parties of the far right and religious right for talks on forming the next government.

Earlier talks with Likud’s centrist rivals could not agree on terms, though Likud leader and one-time PM Benjamin Netanyahu is sill hopeful of a deal.

The centrist Kadima party won one more seat than Likud in the 10 February poll but Likud was asked to form a coalition as it had more support from other MPs.

The coalition makeup is seen as crucial in securing Palestinian-Israeli peace.

Analysts say a government of right-wingers and Orthodox Jews who champion settlement-building and oppose land-for-peace deals might jeopardise prospects for peace.

A more moderate-looking government which included Kadima and the centre-left Labour party might find more favour with Israel’s international backers, they say. Leggi il seguito di questo post »

Lieberman: Civil marriages not my 1st priority

Yisrael Beiteinu leader reportedly prepared to compromise in order to join forces with Shas in Netanyahu-led government
Attila Somfalvi

The issue of civil marriages is not a top priority for Yisrael Beiteinu, party leader Avigdor Lieberman said in closed-door sessions Monday, paving the way for joining forces with Shas in a Netanyahu-led government.

Lieberman reportedly stressed that his party’s top priority is the granting of legislative and financial preference to discharged soldiers, followed by efforts to change Israel’s system of government, Ynet learned, with the issue of civil marriages only coming next.

Religion according to Lieberman

Posted by claudiacampli su 24 febbraio, 2009

Haaretz

By Anshel Pfeffer


With all the talk about the anti-Arab rhetoric favored by our new kingmaker Avigdor Lieberman, too little attention has been paid to the challenge he poses for Israelis who have been hoping for a revolution in the moldy status quo of religion and state. But suddenly, it turns out that the principal obstacle to Yisrael Beiteinu’s entry into Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition is its bitter dispute with Shas and United Torah Judaism.

Israel’s Labor snubs coalition bid

Posted by alicemarziali su 23 febbraio, 2009

 AL JAZEERA INTERNATIONALIsrael’s Labor Party has rejected an appeal by Benyamin Netanyahu, the man tasked with forming the country’s next government, to join a coalition led by his Likud party.

Netanyahu said he was undeterred by Labor’s rejection on Monday and pledged to continue to seek support from Labor and Kadima, Israel’s largest party.

“I am not going to give up in this,” he said. “I want to try to make every effort to form a national unity government.” Leggi il seguito di questo post »

ANALYSIS / Netanyahu’s victory is starting to turn sour

Posted by alicemarziali su 20 febbraio, 2009

haaretz

Quite a few jaws dropped to the floor as the list of portfolios requested by Avigdor Lieberman became public: Justice, Public Security and Foreign. This sounds like a bad joke, or an aggressive push by a man up to his neck in investigations to usurp the rule of law.

One can imagine Foreign Minister Lieberman returning from one of the few countries that will agree to let him in, and summoning the Justice and Public Security ministers to catch up on his investigations; or alternately, telling Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann whom he prefers as the next attorney general.
