A newly elected Gantz-led government will possess the needed political legitimacy, popular mandate and strategic tools to achieve what Netanyahu could not accomplish.
A General Gantz government will mean the end of Palestine, as the new extreme right political formation will start another War on Gaza, and complete the annexation of the West Bank.
What the Gantz government means for Palestine, is Netanyahu on steroids. Experience has taught Palestinians not to pay heed to Israeli elections. But to every rule there is an exception.
Although it is still true that no Israeli Zionist leader has ever been kind to the Palestinian people, the dynamics of the latest Israeli elections on September 17 are likely to affect the Occupied Palestinian Territories in a profound way.
At the same time Twitter, Google and Facebook will try to sink the alternative media for exposing the real events regarding these geo-political the matters.
Former chief of general staff of the Israeli army, Benny Gantz, who had orchestrated the destructive war on the besieged Gaza Strip in 2014, had recently boasted about sending “parts of Gaza back to the Stone Age”.
There is little discussion in Israeli, and, by extension, western media of Gantz’s numerous war crimes during the Gaza war. Most Palestinians don’t have running water or electricity and are blocked from fishing in the Mediterranean Sea.
The leader of the Kahol Lavan (Blue and White) party had plotted the ouster of Netanyahu back in January 2018, when he formed the Israeli Resilience Party.
With 33 seats in the Israeli Knesset, Gantz now needs a broad coalition to rule Israel. The vehemently anti-Palestinian politician has made it clear that he will not enter into a coalition with the alliance of various Palestinian Arab political parties,
The Joint List had managed to achieve to roll up an outstanding 13 seats, making it the third largest political force in Israel after.to Likud’s 31 seats.
It is now likely that Gantz will seek a coalition government that includes the Likud, along with Russian born Avigdor Lieberman’s Yisrael Beiteinu.
The country’s former ultra-nationalist defense minister, Lieberman, with 8 seats, has restored his previous “kingmaker” status. He, too, is keen on such a coalition. Gantz is open to such a scenario, with one condition: Netanyahu should stay out.
Once upon a time, outright discussion of annexing large parts of the Occupied Palestinian Territories were relegated to the margins of Israel’s political discourse. This is no longer the case.
The call for annexing major illegal settlement blocs, along with the Jordan Valley, is now a common demand made by all of Israel’s main political parties, including Gantz’s own.
If a future war goes as planned, Gantz would be happy to claim the accolades of victory; if it does not, due to Gaza’s stiff resistance, the political damage is likely to remain minimal.
When it comes to war, Gantz is Netanyahu on steroids. He has participated, orchestrated or led many military campaigns, including ones aimed at suppressing any resistance in Gaza, in Lebanon and during the previous popular uprisings.
For Gantz, war is the answer, as indicated by one of his campaign slogans, “Only the Strong Survive.”
