Israel: Right-wing Opposition Members Vow To Defeat All Coalition Bills – i24NEWS

Posted By on May 31, 2022

The goal of the majority of the opposition is to form an alternative government headed by Benjamin Netanyahu

The leaders of Israel's right-wing opposition parties said Monday that they would not support any upcoming coalition legislation, despite ideologically supporting them.

The heads of the Likud, Shas, United Torah Judaism and Religious Zionism parties who call themselves the "national camp" stated that their goal is to form an alternate government headed by opposition leader and former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

If this is not possible, the national camp will press for elections.

Except for the Arab-majority Joint List party, the opposition leaders accused the government of relying on "terror supporters" in the Islamist Ra'am party, being inadequate for Judaism and the economy, and being unable to handle the "existential threat" posed by Iran.

We wont help them; they need to go, said Netanyahu, saying the coalition was a sinking ship, according to The Times of Israel. We wont fall into the trap that each time well save them.

Religious Zionism leader Bezalel Smotrich said that all outside support for the coalition would end.

We wont be its crutches, he said.

Shas leader Aryeh Deri, who left the parliament (Knesset) as part of a plea deal, but continues to run the religious Sephardi party, declared, "It is wrong to back the coalition on anything, not even a good bill," according to The Jerusalem Post.

Lacking the support, the coalition was forced to withdraw a bill reapplying Israeli law to Israelis in the West Bank, a bill that the national camp ideologically supports.
