#1 I scanned a couple of articles at the Jpost, and it seems like Bibi is still in, but ...

Can you interpret/clarify, g(r)om? Anybody?

#2 Bibi can't form a government without Liberman and the religious parties. But Liberman won't go with the religious.
Gantz can't form a government without Arab parties and Liberman - and (even if Gantz went bananas) Arabs won't go with Liberman

#7 Funny how the left here in the US points to coalition government as a superior model but they want to cut the entire center of CONUS out of their preferred governing coalition. Hypocrisy much?

#8 Each form has it's advantages and disadvantages, Anakin. For example, in Israel leftards did not take over one of the two major parties - they've started a party of their own. Ditto, somebody like Obama (or Bush II) couldn't become an Israeli PM because he'd be eaten alive during coalition negotiations.
On the other hand, you've stability. Of course, stability not always good - not when both your parties stand for the same thing.

#11 This laundry list sounds like a first pass that will be whittled down as negotiations are concluded, and Lieberman gets to a point that reflects his 8 or 10 seat representation (out of 120). He might get to be kingmaker, but definitely not king.

According to a friend of a friend who was Mr. Obama’s classmate at Harvard law school, he was a pathetic negotiator even then. When a key part of getting the job is brilliant negotiating, someone who says, “Don’t call my bluff,” isn’t going to get very far.

Whereas Dubya was a great p0ker player. Putin almost annexed Georgia, but Dubya prevented it by flying in a couple of US military transport planes.
