You claim that the absorption ministry has become the "private fiefdom of one political party (Yisrael Beitenu)." But I am not sure why. The current minister is from Yisrael Beitenu because SHE WAS THE ONLY ONE who wanted the job. For years the Klitah ministry was seen as an also-ran job to send disgruntled MKs who were ready to rebel for not getting a more "senior" cabinet position. Sofa Landver actually requested the position, after years of helping olim in Ashdod and around the country, so why is it a surprise she achieved it? Will Yisrael Beytenu continue to hold the position after January elections? It will certainly request it, but I hardly consider one term of office in a Ministry, dependent on the will of the PM, as a private fifedom.
