Indeed, throughout the democratic countries, their election process is built on forming a coalition government, nearly all of those coalitions govern by very thin majority, having to worry each day they do not fall apart. With that, to one extent or another, the way these governments operate is painful to see or hear. The thin majority type government power is weak, paralyzing its decisions and is not providing/carrying true leadership. Of course, a coalition government, that, on many issues, is polarized, cannot have a resolute course of actions and stand up to its enemy or, in today's case, standing up to the totalitarian Islamic movements.

Only yesterday Israel Minister of Defense Ehud Barak opened his mouth and declared that Israel is willing to share Jerusalem with the Arabs. This was his view, not the current Israeli government's position. A minister making a declarations of his own opinion against his government 's policy line weakens and demoralizes the position of the government he serves.

Israel is the epitome of a coalition government failure. In its 62 years of existence, not one Israeli government completed its full term, not ONE! They all fell apart earlier. Netanyahu's government is hanging by a string too, and he walks a very fine line each day…we shall see if he can survive the full term, thus make history. It will be the first Israeli government to do so.
