While Barak's public posturing against illegal outposts and houses can certainly be attributed to his political ambitions, they are also indicative of a serious rift within Netanyahu's coalition. It is interesting that we haven't heard a word from Netanyahu or his office directly so far addressing this internecine struggle. This silence could be a sign that he continues to sit on the fence while hedging his bets because he really doesn't know yet which side his bread is buttered on and he is already facing a second confrontation in the Knesset between his own coalition-partners and those defending the autonomy of the Supreme Court. This current trouble-in-paradise scenario could conceivably provide the catalyst for the coalition to self-destruct.
