Inexperience is only part of it, the problem goes way beyond. this administration equates American democracy with that of Israel, where in America we're forced to choose between one or the other. the administration approaches Israeli democracy in this matter believing it can influence the will of the Israeli people. the breakdown occurs here, a blatant misinterpretation of how Israeli democracy works is what continues to baffle this administration. They don't understand that Israeli's vote for security, they don't hope for it. Every candidates platform must revolve around security in order to garner support and when forming a coalition, must take into account all their collective desires as well. In Israel it isn't "we won" so you must agree and listen, that attitude generates new elections immediately as political figures are an extension of the peoples will, not the party.
