While Netanyahu has betrayed his constituency - the still mainly secular Israeli voter and taxpayer - he has done so because that same voter and taxpayer has permitted him to do so. Unless and until the Israeli citizens take to the streets and demand and end to these filthy little coalition deals, Netanyahu (and all the other Netanyahus waiting in the wings) will continue to sell out their constituencies for the sake of short-term political gains. The Israeli voter needs to consistently and absolutely demand coalition governments that exclude the ultra-Orthodox parties as a matter of policy and principle. That is the only way to stop this abuse and corruption, at least until such time as the Israeli electoral system is reformed.
