Netanyahu Ousted From Power

by Oui Fri May 28th, 2021 at 07:54:55 PM EST

Amongst calls for a 5th election in two years and another delay in the triple corruptions trial for PM Bibi Netanyahu, it appears there may be a Change government in the making a few days before the deadline date of June 2nd.


Regime change at last!

Free Palestine Now!   🇵🇸 🇵🇸 🇵🇸

Basically a change of leadership in Israel was long overdue!

Likud minister Katz accuses MK Barkat of ’subversive' action against Netanyahu | TOI |

With concern growing in Likud over the possible formation of a so-called change government that will oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from power, conflict erupted Friday between two top party officials who view themselves as potential successors to the premier.

The spat developed after MK Nir Barkat announced plans for an activist conference in which he would unveil his "vision" for the country in two weeks' time.

This raised the ire of Finance Minister Israel Katz, who wrote to supporters that "never in the history of Likud has such subversive action taken place against a ruling prime minister."

UAE and Israel press ahead with ties after Gaza ceasefire | AP - Ynet News |

Israel's top diplomat to the United Arab Emirates attended a ceremony in Dubai on the grounds of the Arabian Peninsula's first permanent exhibition to commemorate the Holocaust. Hours earlier, he'd attended an event establishing a joint venture between an Israeli and Emirati company.

"What we see here is the exact opposite of what we see in Gaza... What we see here in the whole normalization process is a departure from the past," Israeli Ambassador Eitan Na'eh said.

At least 254 Palestinians were killed, including 66 children, in the Gaza Strip during the war. Another 1,948 people were wounded, according to Gaza's health ministry, which does not differentiate between fighters and civilians. Twelve people were killed in Israel, including an Israeli soldier and two children.

The UAE government and its top officials publicly expressed concern over the violence in East Jerusalem and condemned the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque compound by Israeli security forces, as well as Jewish settler efforts to evict Palestinian families from their homes in the city's Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

UAE invests $10bn in Israeli hi-tech and security corporations. Al Aqsa is a concern, not the Palestinian people as we have seen with the attempted overthrow of King Abdullah II of Jordan. Quite appalling of the ruthlessness of the wealthy Arab States.

Kuwaiti MPs submit bill banning any dealings with Israel | Gulf News - May 20, 2021 |

Kuwaiti MPs have submitted a new draft law stipulating a jail sentence of between one and three years for people and authorities dealing with or travelling to Israel, local media reported.

The bill, submitted by MPs Adnan Abdulsamad, Hisham Al Saleh, Ali Al Qattan, Ahmad Al Hamad and Khalil Al Saleh, bans any dealing or normalisation with Israel.

It bans any direct or indirect contacts with Israel and also bans any Kuwaiti or expat residing in the country from visiting Israel. The bill also bans any expression of sympathy with Israel. It proposes a jail sentence of between one year and three years and a fine of up to KD5,000 for violators.

Israel's Lehava stirs `anarchy' in Jerusalem | Al Jazeera - Dec. 4, 2016 |

"A" managed to break free and fled to a nearby restaurant, where a friend worked, and hid inside. "If I hadn't been able to run away, they would have killed me," he said.

His filmed testimony is one of several taken of Palestinians in Jerusalem who have been violently assaulted recently by far-right Jewish activists. Fearing reprisals, most of the victims agreed to testify only on condition that their real identities were not disclosed.

The attacks were carried out by a far-right group called Lehava, or Flame in Hebrew, an acronym for the Organisation for the Prevention of Miscegenation in the Holy Land. Run by a far-right rabbi, Ben-Zion Gopstein, Lehava rejects any interaction between Jews and Palestinians.

In 2014, some 200 Lehava supporters - many wearing the group's "Jewish honour guard" T-shirts - protested noisily outside the wedding of a Palestinian man and a female Jewish convert to Islam in the city of Jaffa, near Tel Aviv. Some carried placards with the slogan: "Miscegenation is a Holocaust".

Jerusalem's streets, meanwhile, are littered with fliers and stickers in Arabic warning, "Don't even think about a Jewish girl" and in Hebrew stating, "Beware the goys [a derogatory term for non-Jews] - they will defile you".

Incitement and hatred has become an Israeli line of defense to expand settlements on Palestinian Land ever since its founding and ethnic cleansing or the Nakba in 1948. Netanyahu was well known for playing the racist card with rightwing terror inside Israel and promoting Islamophobia in the Western World after the attacks by Saudi nationals in New York and Washington on 9/11. Israel lobby groups and funding have managed to spread the poison to gullible nations. Just like many Israeli leaders before him may he find eternal suffering by final judgement.

Israeli PM Netanyahu resigns from all ministerial posts over criminal charges | EuroNews - Jan. 2, 2021 |

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has officially resigned from all of his ministerial posts, a requirement of the corruption indictment levied against him.

Netanyahu held four portfolios in addition to being prime minister, health, welfare, agriculture and diaspora affairs. Israeli law does not allow an individual indicted for crimes to hold ministerial office, although it does not prevent them from serving as prime minister.

He has only named one replacement so far, a new minister for health affairs, Jakov Litzman.

On January 1, 2020, Netanyahu was the first Israeli prime minister in history to seek immunity from corruption charges, including bribery, breach of trust and fraud in November. He has denied any wrongdoing.

At the close of the Sunday meeting, Yamina released a statement saying that it fully backed Bennett's coalition moves.

Israeli opposition parties reach agreement to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
Shira Rubin  WaPo  May 31, 2021 at 2:16 a.m. GMT+9

JERUSALEM -- A diverse coalition of Israeli opposition parties said Sunday that they have the votes to form a unity government to unseat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel's longest-serving leader and its dominant political figure for more than a decade.

Under their agreement, reached after weeks of negotiations spearheaded by centrist opposition leader Yair Lapid, former Netanyahu defense minister and ally Naftali Bennett will lead a power-sharing government.

"We could go to fifth elections, sixth elections, until our home falls upon us, or we could stop the madness and take responsibility," Bennett said in a televised statement Sunday evening. "Today, I would like to announce that I intend to join my friend Yair Lapid in forming a unity government."

Netanyahu has been struggling to hold onto power after four inconclusive elections in the past two years while facing an ongoing corruption trial. Bennett is one of several former loyalists who have flirted with joining the so-called change coalition, a collection of parties that span the political spectrum but share a desire to end Netanyahu's 12-year tenure.

Likud MK Miki Zohar says there is "no place" for threatening or acting violently toward politicians of all stripes, following a wave of reported threats against lawmakers seeking to form a government that will replace Prime Minister Netanyahu as premier.

"Criticism and political protests -- yes. Violence and threats against lawmakers and their families -- no way," tweets Zohar, a Netanyahu loyalist.

It adds that a complaint has been filed with the Knesset Guard.

Ze'ev Elkin, a former Likud cabinet minister who was considered a close confidant of Netanyahu, left to join the New Hope party ahead of the March 2021 elections, blasting the prime minister for his conduct and accusing him of putting his personal considerations above the country best interests.

The military also released that the officer had not been charged with espionage or treason, nor had he been in contact with a foreign agent, nor was he the asset of a foreign agent.

The serviceman was buried in a civilian cemetery plot and will not be recognized as a fallen soldier. The IDF said this was the case as the soldier had been formally discharged from the army while in prison and was thus not eligible for a military funeral.

The case is reminiscent of Ben Zygier, reportedly a former Mossad agent, who was arrested in March 2010 and held under a false alias in Ayalon Prison's secluded Wing 15.

According to reports, his identification was even hidden from the guards at the prison.

A dual Australian-Israeli citizen, Zygier hung himself in December and was laid to rest in a Melbourne Jewish cemetery. Zygier's identity was not released by Israel until three years later.

More on rabble-rousing ...

Egged on by a rabble-rousing individual who literally wore a political bumper sticker on his chest, a crowd of angry haredi Orthodox Jews protested coronavirus restrictions, burning masks and denouncing government authorities. Police, wary of this summer's Black Lives Matter protests but unaccustomed to angry mobs of Hasidim in their Yom Tov finery, were unprepared for the melee. 

Scenes of the demonstrations were widely circulated on social media, including sporadic episodes of shameful violence. In one notorious bit of cellphone footage, a Yiddish-inflected curse was repeatedly thrown at Jacob Kornbluh, a Hasidic reporter for Jewish Insider.
