The black hole of Israeli democracy

A poll on June 2 found that a new political party led by former defense minister Moshe Ya’alon would tie the Likud if an election were to be held now. It builds on another survey taken in late May that showed a party led by a troika of Kulanu leader Moshe Kahlon, Ya’alon and former Likud minister Gideon Sa’ar would defeat Netanyahu.

The excitement around a centrist party run by Ya’alon gained more attention at the Herzliya Conference when he lashed out at the government for “inciting Jews against Arabs, Right against Left, and between different tribes, all in order to survive in the government and to get another month or another year.”
