Livni and Lapid opposed Israel’s National Bill and provided Netanyahu a golden opportunity to reinstate his status as a devoted Jewish patriotic and a nationalist voice. I guess that Netanyahu will survive this political round.
But here is a small yet significant piece of the story. Seven month ago it was Netanyahu who mounted pressure on the PA, the Hamas and the Palestinian population in an effort to break up the Palestinian unity government. After six month of violence, a war in Gaza and a 3rd Intifada in the making, the Palestinians seem more united than ever, and Netanyahu’s Government is breaking apart.
The United Nations General Assembly has overwhelmingly adopted an Arab-backed resolution urging Israel to join the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
The assembly approved of the resolution in a 161-5 vote, with 18 countries abstaining, on Tuesday.
The United States and Canada were among the countries that opposed the resolution.
The resolution urges the Tel Aviv regime to join the NPT and put its nuclear facilities under the safeguard of the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency.
The resolution, which is backed by 18 Arab countries, also expresses deep concern over Israel’s nuclear capabilities.
