Netanyahu should be very vulnerable if an election were based on rational considerations of the affects of his policies on Israel's status and prospects. Its devolved. Turkey (barely speaking, from relatively close ally). PA (barely speaking from relatively close security coordination), Jordan (barely speaking), Egypt (barely speaking). The liberal left needs coherent organization, coherent policy to articulate, determination to enact it, and then with the better argument to win in elections. Netanyahu/Lieberman's policies are at their feet. The absence of a political alternative is at the feet of the liberal left, even right on the money Mr Eldar. If I were an Israeli, I would be tempted to say, "its us, we didn't do what we needed to. We weren't sufficiently committed to our convictions to put in the time effectively."
