The polyamorous marriage called the Bennett-Lapid government set out on its journey laden with heavy loads of doubt. The optimistic, nearly spiritual approach that was characterized by the philosophy of Yesh Atid chairman and Foreign Minister Yair Lapid has become the modus operandi of this strange new coalitional creature: We usually agree on 80 percent of things, so let’s just concentrate on them. That is, mostly on domestic issues – the coronavirus pandemic, the economy and infrastructure. Dismantling the landmines, inter alia in the international arena, we’ll leave to the next coalitional generation. Après nous, le déluge. In any case, no one has much desire or courage to deal with such things.
