New tender says it is intended for both men and women – but requires applicants to already work for the rabbinical court, effectively disqualifying female candidates.04:02 09.02.16 | 0 comments
The end result of Labor joining the Netanyahu coalition is that Netanyahu had 2 years to rule comfortably, with no serious pressure from anyone, especially the US, to advance the peace process. Livni refused to join the coalition because Netanyahu refused to utter the words "two states for two peoples". For this, Kadima is now the "alternative" to Likud. Labor, which couldn't control its urge to be in the government, is expected to lose about half its seats in the next elections. Now that leaving the government is becoming a reality for Labor, it is actually trapped in the coalition out of fear that Netanyahu will go to elections shortly thereafter. The way for Labor to break out of the trap is to replace Barak first, then let the new leader pull Labor out. The public might regain some confidence in Labor's potential this way. There is little doubt that the Right will win if the elections are held in 2011, but a new leader for Labor will stem the collapse and will have a chance to resurrect Labor from the opposition to the next government.
