Liberman could always turn to the left entirely

Dr. Eitan Orkibi warns that Avigdor Lieberman's fully capable of veering left, if that's what it takes to bring down Netanyahu:
It seems to me that a person needs a certain basic amount of integrity to admit that the term "paranoia" is a little exaggerated to describe the worry over various political scenarios that the prime minister's associates are warning against.

But after Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Lieberman's astonishing and uncompromising conduct over the past year, any other attitude toward possible plans of action in which he could be involved should be considered complacence. In effect, when we're talking about the Yisrael Beytenu leader, experience teaches us that, unfortunately, the most unlikely possibilities should be taken as realistic. After the April election, he proved that he is not afraid of coming off as a loose cannon, and the Sept. 17 do-over election proved that the national camp – which used to be his home – again has no reason to put its trust in him.

The thing is, in times of political polarization and intra-bloc power struggles, it's impossible for anyone to be on their own. When you intentionally harm group A, you automatically operate in favor of group B. Some laughed when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned about that, but in the next few days we might discover that his diagnosis was correct: Lieberman really has proved that he is on the Left. If not in terms of ideology, then certainly in terms of bloc politics.
Liberman's caused more than enough trouble for the Israeli political scene, and that anybody would continue supporting such an embarrassment of a politician is shameful. He's nothing but a troublemaker, and now it's really come to the fore. For all we know, he could really wind up spelling disaster for Israel.
