The problem is not RZP or Islamists. The problem is Netanyahu.

Reader comment on item: Can the Koran Solve Israel's Political Impasse?

Submitted by David (Israel), Apr 26, 2021 at 05:01

People of Israel have voted increasingly clearly in 4 elections in 2 years: they want to get rid of Netanyahu, with his criminal charges and almost 14 years in the office that led to unprecedented personal and systemic corruption.

There is not a single person in Israel - left or right - who will not agree with the following mathematically correct assessment: if Netanyahu loosens his grip on the Likud party and resigns now, a majority (65/120) coalition of Zionist right-wing parties will spring out of the ashes in 48 hours. No need even for a coalition with center-left or center-right, let alone leftwing, Arab or Islamist parties.

Therefore Dr Pipes' witty exercise in Islamic political theology is irrelevant for the current Israeli politics. Netanyahu is the problem, nothing else.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Irrelevant only if Netanyahu bows out, which so far he shows no signs of doing.

I have called for him to leave the prime ministry, by the way.
