Israel’s Lockdown Tightens In A Bid To Snuff Out Corona

by Micha Gefen

While Netanyahu’s newest released lockdown rules are tighter than even the first, perhaps the hardest part is the closure of all synagogues for Yom Kippur the holiest day of the year for Jews around the world.

At the time of the writing of this article the Knesset is still debating the extent of the emergency powers the government during lockdown. There is a push to ban all protests as long as synagogue prayers are also banned with Blue and White insisting that they will prevent it.

Likud is threatening new elections if Blue and White sides with the opposition over the protests.

So with theholist month on the Jewish calendar well underway, schools closed, and a growing frustration that Netanyahu cares more about peace deals than his frustrated and countrymen, the street appears to be finally set on backing Naftali Bennett’s Yamina party in a direct challenge to Likud rule.

This is why Netanyahu is nervous about elections. On one hand he doesn’t want Gantz to take over and on the other elections could see his young rival on the right do the impossible and complete the Jewish Leadership revolution many have predicted would take place.

Either way Netanyahu has little room to maneuver.
