Issues Facing Israeli President Herzog in Forming Decidedly Conservative Government While Facing Democractic Inconsistencies

Reader comment on item: About Those Billboards in Israel ...

The appearance of new confronational aspects of forming Israel's next government now appear to recall that in the variable political postures of the previous Knessets, the minority voices seemed to have had some effect in not letting the majority implement certain policies that did not apppear to serve Israel in general. There was no apparent commonality of goals and the factious nature of the previous sessions of the Knesset was found in evidence that the more compelling issues could not be addressed either.
Israel's major issues, internationally interjected and debated and unceremoniously placed in direct conflict to allowing Israel to govern itself in the best way that can be beneficial to all its citizens, are further complicated in that the international community thinks it can control Israel's destiny, doing so the satisfaction of her enemies. Which of Israel's antagonists would allow the same interference in thier own affairs: Russia, China, North Korea, Syria, Turkiye, et al: ummm, don't think so. And yet they do, complicit with Israel's enemies within.
There was an alliance between the previous administrations of the United States, but this has been compromised (even in spite of the four years with the 45th American Administration's friendship) and no the impractical 'Two State' solution is being floated to pacify and placate the unstable 'Palestinian Authority's' continued attempts to keep Israel off balance and susceptable to even greater attempts to overthrow the nation. This poses the question: does the next government have the sense to be stronger in governance and not let the interior enemies dictate a softer 'democratic' approach to defending the state from all comers.
