I find it interesting that they managed to unite under a banner of hating Bibi but I do wonder if the end result changes anything, if they pass the rule against indicted individuals being PM then implode would that not just let Bibi capitalize on the fragility of that alliance? Sure he might not be able to be PM if they succeed but he would likely be the defacto king maker anyway when the dust settles.

> TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s opponents pushed Thursday for a quick parliament vote to formally end his lengthy rule, hoping to head off any last-minute attempts to derail their newly announced coalition government. >The latest political maneuvering began just hours after opposition leader Yair Lapid and his main coalition partner, Naftali Bennett, declared they had reached a deal to form a new government and muster a majority in the 120-member Knesset, or parliament. > The coalition consists of eight parties from across the political spectrum with little in common except the shared goal of toppling Netanyahu after a record-setting 12 years in power. The alliance includes hardliners previously allied with Netanyahu, as well as center-left parties and even an Arab faction — a first in Israeli politics.

I hope this works. It will make the world just a touch better to get Neanderthal-Yahoo out now.
