Having invited Livni in, which way will Netanyahu now go?
by ray goodlass
In Israel Netanahu has included Tzipi Livni and her Hatnua Party into his still being formed coalition government. Hatnua is described as a ‘Centrist’ party, yet it doesn’t include Peace negotiations in its platform, as I observed in the lead up to the Israeli elections when I was there in January.
Livni will only bring him six Knesset votes, so the $64,000 question is still which of the ‘major’ new parties will he invite into his coalition, the progressive pro-peace ‘There is a Future’ or the adamantly no peace ‘A Jewish Home’, which actually wants to annex all of Palestine? It would be very hopeful if it was the former, but I have my doubts.
