Meretz Knesset member quits Bennett/Lapid government, crippling it further

Who would've thought a member of a left-wing party would be next to quit the coalition of Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid, reducing it to minority status? Yet that's just what happened this week:
The government of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and alternate Prime Minister Yair Lapid suffered a serious blow on Thursday when another MK announced that she is leaving their governing coalition.

Meretz MK Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi sent a letter to Bennett and Lapid saying that she no longer saw herself as part of the coalition. She also announced that she would not accept her appointment as Israel’s next consul general in Shanghai.

“I entered politics because I saw myself as an emissary of Arab society, which I represent,” Zoabi wrote. “Unfortunately over the last few months for narrow political reasons, the heads of the coalition preferred to strengthen their right side. Again and again, the heads of the coalition preferred to take harsh hawkish right-wing steps on key issues related to Arab society.”
So in her case, it's all because she perceives this faux-government as "right-wing". In any event, this does deal a serious blow to the coalition as it stands now, and Bennett's scrambling for survival of his government in his greedy desperation to remain a premier, and retain a position he doesn't deserve. Again, it remains to seen how this'll turn out.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
