Netanyahu formeert meest rechtse regering

By Jordi Bou

December 22, 2022 - Benjamin Netanyahu said he has secured a deal to form a new government with hardline religious and far-right political partners, which will see him return to power as the head of the most right-wing coalition in Israel’s history.

Secular and liberal Israelis are horrified by the anti-Arab, homophobic and sexist rhetoric of some of the people appointed to ministerial positions, as well as plans to dismantle judicial checks and balances.

They fear this government could have far-reaching implications for Israel’s democratic institutions; for its civil society; and for Palestinians – in Israel and in the Palestinian territories that Israel has occupied since 1967.

Netanyahu has accused critics of fearmongering and has vowed to preserve the status quo.
