Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday revealed details of the negotiations for a unity government with Blue & White but has not convinced his opponent to agree.
Netanyahu claimed agreements have already been reached on a government that will serve for three years, led for the first 18 months by Netanyahu with a Likud Finance Minister while Blue and White will receive the Foreign and Defense ministries, and in September of 2021 the roles will be changed and Benny Gantz will become prime minister and a member of his party will lead the Finance Ministry, while the Defense and Foreign Ministries will be given over to the Likud.
Netanyahu also said the two factions would hold an equal number of portfolios to ensure that no one faction has a majority over the other in government votes.
But Blue and White has thus far not accepted the prime minister's offer and is continuing on its declared path to replace Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein with one of their members, a move that will position them in an advantage over Likud and enable them to legislate laws that will block Netanyahu from becoming a candidate for PM while criminal charges against him still stand... (Better no-deal than a bad one - Decisive victory of Zionist parties is needed!)
The 120 politicians forming the 23rd Knesset were sworn in as Members of Knesset. With 120 seats in the Knesset, the 61 Members of Knesset (MKs) expressed their support for Gantz. A total of 58 MKs recommended Netanyahu for the task and one abstained. (Now is the time for decent members of the Jewish Left, 3 or 4 of them, to put aside their personal ambition and leave traitors and move to the Zionist side!)
Officials in the Likud and Blue and White parties said that the main dispute in the talks on an emergency government has been resolved, and that a few other minor points of contention remain. (There is no trust or common objectives! Agreement will only keep 'boys' in power a bit longer!)
A new poll showed that if elections were held today, the Likud would be the largest party in the Knesset, winning 40 seats. Blue and White party would gain 30 seats, the poll showed. The Joint Arab List would remain stable at 15 seats. The poll gives the right-wing bloc 62 Knesset seats. (How much treachery committed by 'Blue and White' party is needed to convince Jews in Israel to stop supporting it? Bibi is not the best Zionist, but until he steps down, he is the best option available at the moment!)

Recently, I have found a term for what I do - "Transformational Therapy"! I knew that there is a term for changing people's mind-set, not only in relation to resolving personal problems, but also to global issues, like the right of Jews to live in peace on Jewish ancestral land!
Hamas said that talks had been held with Egyptian and Qatari negotiators in recent days to monitor the difficult economic situation in Gaza in light of the coronavirus crisis. They claimed that if the economic situation were to deteriorate, "the (situation) with Israel will get to the point that terrorist organizations in Gaza will force half of the Israeli public into (bomb) shelters." (Time to end this charade and remove the enemies from the Jewish land!)
MK Yazbak (Joint Arab List) said she wants to preserve Arabs' 'national identity' while divesting Israel of its Jewish identity and eliminating Zionism. "This plan opposes and fights the country's Zionism and prides itself of divesting the country of its Jewish and Zionist existence, and at the same time preserves our national identity, without sacrificing full citizenship..." (Israel’s internal enemies love benefits of living in the Jewish state but hate it at the same time. This is who “Blue and White” relies on to form an Israeli government!)
Politicians from Netanyahu’s Likud party have filed a private member’s bill that would immediately apply sovereignty to all Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria. The bill’s advancement will depend on whether or not the 23rd Knesset succeeds in its formation. However, if the Knesset can continue with business as usual, there will likely be enough support to pass the bill. (Let’s hope that finally they have the 'balls' to do this! The righteous shall inherit the land, and abide forever in it. Psalm 37:29)
Despite facing one of the world’s worst coronavirus outbreaks, Iran appears to be continuing its pursuit of nuclear weapons, increasing its uranium stockpile, which now stands at more than 1,000 kilograms, and is also using a greater number of advanced centrifuges for enrichment. Experts believe that Iran’s breakout time to produce a nuclear weapon may have now been reduced to just a matter of months.
IDF soldiers were trading with civilians in thousands of bullets and gun parts that were being transferred to the Palestinian Authority. A joint operation by Israel’s combined security services subsequently led to the arrest of 21 soldiers and civilians. The investigation revealed the soldiers stole a large amount of ammunition from the army, as well as standard military gun parts which they replaced with counterfeit parts. (This is not the first time! Some politically correct idiots still advocate that Arab-Israelis should serve in IDF.)
Mahmoud Abbas has heavily influenced Israel’s democratic process and has pressured the anti-Zionist Joint Arab List faction in the Knesset to recommend Blue and White leader Benny Gantz to form the next government. Balad is one the parties of which comprises the Joint Arab List. It is considered the most anti-Zionist of the three parties.

Why Left or Right?
by Steven Shamrak.
One of the major distinctions between humans and animals is that we have analytical intellect. At the same time. we base most of our ideas and form opinions on our emotions, beliefs and assumptions, not on facts. Blinded by personal psycho-emotional history, people dismiss logic of the facts and create assumptions to fit and support their own belief structure.
Completely opposite ideologies: Leftists, Fascists and Islamic expansionists/terrorists find themselves united on one issue only – Hate toward Jews. Quite often, I receive mail from them. Those messages are mainly just rhetoric based on preconceived ideas and psycho -emotional cocktail.
I have never received letters that would contradict the historical facts about the right of Jewish people to their homeland – “Palestine”. The history of aggression and terror created by Arab: History of UN bias against Israel.
I have been accused of being:
Anti-Arab or Muslim - As a member of the Jewish tribe, with thousands of years being the victims in history of persecution and discrimination, I can assure you that my views are not anti-something. I just express a pro-Jewish point of view based on facts, not legends. At the same time, I do respect the freedom and rights of any religion and political point of view, even the fascist one, as long as they do not infringe on the rights of others.
Too emotional - Arab leaders and clerics are often seen on TV, fumigating when they talk about Israel. Communists and Fascists are so passionate when they scream anti-Israel/anti-Semitic slogans. This is apparently acceptable. However, when a Jew logically presents facts in support of the Jewish state, suddenly, it is wrong to be emotional.
Too Right wing - I do not consider myself Right or Left wing. I base my ideas and views on facts not emotions. There are too many people (including many Jews) who are very eager to promote, self-destructive, Left- wing views. Actually, I can't understand why, in relation to Israel’s right to exist, there are Right or Left wing political points of view. Isn't it supposed to be a point of view based on historical facts and the right of the Jewish people to live on the land of their ancestors?
The bottom line is, Zionism is the Jewish independence movement! It is not a Left or Right political ideology of the Socialist or Capitalist systems! Jewish people have the rights of to live in peace on our ancestral land, and we must stop being apologetic about it – our enemies do not want our land, they want to see destruction of Israel and kill Jews!
