Everybody knows it's the splintered Knesset, with all those mini-parties, which all but ensures that religious parties will be in a government coalition (26 out of 120 seats are held by mini-parties) . And of course once they have power they will do all they can to push their demands through and deliver to their constituencies. This problem would vanish if there was a 5% threshold for parties to get into the Knesset. The Israeli parliament would be reduced to only 5 parties, and those would be stronger. Just imagine how much more streamlined the government would be without all those useless extra ministers! And imagine the much more mainstream and reasonable laws that could be passed. Sadly, as long as the minis stubbornly defend their power, it will take a rebellion at the election to change the system. Not likely, or is it?
