1. Habayit Hayehudi is still waiting to receive real invitation
Eric ,   Tel Aviv & NY   (02.25.13)
Habayit Hayehudi is still waiting to receive an invitation to join the government The half assed offer made via the media was not a real invitation or offer. If Bibi was serious he would have made it directly to Bennett not the media. This was a ploy to separate Bennett and Lapid while lowering the price of Shas, and everyone knows it.
2. Indeed, the most natural coalition should include:
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (02.25.13)
Likud-Beitenu, Jesh 'Atid, ha-Bait ha-Jehudi, Qadimah. Such a coalition of liberal democratic and Zionist parties ought to enable us to ensure all Basic Laws are properly completed, including the change in the governing structure; economic questions are addressed based on liberal, rather than socialist, approach, including the state budget; the spread of the load of military and/or national service; as well as dealing with the Arab Israeli conflict but form a position that an accommodation of peaceful coexistence must not be at the expense of Israel's fundamental national and security interests.
3. need coherent peace platform and a new election
On the Balcony ,   NY, Kyiv, Akko   (02.25.13)
We need new elections. The parties as blocs or individually need to work out and present a substantive plan for disengagement from the occupied territories with clearly defined borders which can be unilaterally executed should the PA refuse to negotiate, i.e. "This is our's, this is your's -attack us and you're dead." Naturally, proposals should reflect international law as it is.
4. Avigdor. The people want Lapid n Bennet n their principles
Adi ,   Zurich   (02.25.13)
Avigdor. The people want Lapid n Bennet n their principles
5. Only Bennett stop Bibi from giving the farm away to Arabs!!!
Ramon ,   Israel   (02.25.13)
6. Lieberman's natural partners-Stalin and Mussolini both dead
miki ,   tampa   (02.25.13)
7. #5 Probably correct
Keren ,   IL-BR   (02.25.13)
Israel probably is in the verge to be the scapegoat to "save "(apease)Sirians. Shame on Israeli politicians who yet accept such dirty playings. Israel didn´t vote for these old ugly faeces which are being pushed down Israelis throat and which want to deliver Israel piece by piece every few years to Israels´s mortal foes. And I don´t doubt that OlmerD is manipulating behind the scenes.Not at all. SHAME!
8. #5 You´re probably right
Keren ,   IL-BR   (02.25.13)
Israel is probably going to be used to appease Sirians and the old team of Olmerd/Livni are being employed to do the jo$! Elections??hahahah! SHAME !FILTH!
9. Why is pact between Yesh and Bayit problem but ...
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (02.25.13)
Lieberman criticizes the pact between Bennet's Bayit Yehudi and Lapid's Yesh Atid, but is he not party to a pact between Likud and Israel Beitenu? Is that not a coalition within a coalition?
10. What is the problem?
Israeli 2   (02.25.13)
Natural Partners: Likud & Yisrael Beiteinu = 31 seats Lapid & Bennet = 31 seats. Do you need any more? BIG HUGE MISTAKE: Tzip, Mof and Shel. The religious parties? They do the Harlem Shake wherever the Mula is. I predict Israel's near future would consist of a Bennet/Lapid combo.
11. Lapid
Moshe   (02.25.13)
I feel like Lapid's obsession with getting the haredim to serve is getting in the way of forming a very strong government. Not having the haredim serve has not hurt Israel in the past, nor does anyone ever point out all the ultra-leftist people who do not serve in the army either. A great coalition would be with Likud-Haredim-BY-YA. Shame they can't just work it out because it would be a great government for Israel.
12. Haredim are the natural defenders ..
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (02.26.13)
of the Jewish values , foundation of a JEWISH State. That s why,willy-nilly, they ought to be included in the coalition.
13. Katsav is your natural partner in jail where you belong
Haim ,   TA   (02.26.13)
14. would the West recognise Bennett in goverment
barney rubble ,   boulder   (02.26.13)
given he refuses to recognise Palestine's right to exist ?? yeah I guess they would - disgraceful double standards as usual
