    What I don't understand is why a Haaretz editorial is clearly misinterpreting Lapid's comment for their own ends. Lapid singled out the most visible and anti-Zionist and anti-Israeli member of the previous Knesset to say that he would not join her to block the formation of the government. He is a Zionist centrist party in a polarized electorate which means his role (as seen by those who voted for him) is to be part of the government not to side with the fringes of those elected, against its formation, as The left wing has been begging him to do. Had he mentioned a Haredi MP your editorial board would have lauded him. Shame on you for steering the conversation away from the important issues he needs to traverse to join the kind of government most of the country can stomach and place it on your fringe agenda. I usually don't mind editorial opinions but this is truly shameful.
