Israel needs a unity government

2 Nisan 5772/March 25, 2012

Israel is facing a nuclear threat from Iran, possible strategic disagreements with the US, missiles from Gaza, eroding Jewish support, and now the possibility of coordinated diplomacy between Egypt, Fatah and Hamas.  A government of all its mainstream democratic parties can make, and enforce, peace offers that serve the country’s security; turn divisions among Israel’s neighbors to its advantage; preserve Israel’s democratic system whether or not peace is possible; and make pragmatic decisions on military operations.  Time for Netanyahu, Livni and Shulimovich to put aside their egos and their supporters’ wish lists and join together for a secure, democratic future.
