Israel's elections: Netanyahu's predicament does not matter

Israel is going to elections on 17 March 2015.

Recent news reports suggest that Netanyahu's campaign has started to falter recently. But it doesn't matter.

Left or right, "peaceniks" or hawks, it does not matter- none of them are willing to negotiate for peace with the Palestinians.

It was the "moderate doves" that started this new tradition of pummeling Gaza for political gain in 2009. If they return to power, nothing stops them from acting in line with their past performance.

The only glimmer from either side is that Netanyahu's bellicose performances help deligitimise Israel actions.


With the results now in, it seems there was no predicament.

But to secure his position, Netanyahu could no longer lie about wanting a peaceful solution with the Palestinians: there will never be a settlement under his government.

Most people had figured that out already, but that was not enough for Zionist apologists.
