commentary: A Delicate Israeli Tipping Point

Politically, Israel Appears to be Tilting Toward the Right

Given 25-Oct-08; Sermon #907c; 6 minutes

Description: (hide)

John Ritenbaugh, citing an article in the Charlotte Observer, suggests that the current political changes in Israel are tenuous and very unstable. After Prime Minister Olmert was driven from power, a tenuous coalition party emerged headed by Tzipi Livni, but highly dependent upon the support of the right-wing Shas Party, closer to Benjamin Netanyahu's hawkish position than the dovish centrist Kadima Party. If the Shas Party defects to Netanyahu, then a military attack on Iran's nuclear facility (similar to the earlier attack on Iraq's nuclear facility) would be imminent.
