Israelis against judicial imperialism want a prime minister, even one under corruption charges, seeking legal reform.
Even chief rabbis have obligations to the Jewish people.
Driven less by expedience than by a commitment to Jewish particularism.
Even before an election, some rhetoric crosses a line.
Proportional representation encourages instability and unaccountability.
Netanyahu’s opponents are wrong to put their hopes in the legal system.
Enabling the electorate to work through the hugely sensitive decision of who should lead the country.
A third election begins to look like a possibility.
Whatever happened to “It’s legal, but it stinks”?
A misspelled signature and an uncharacteristic rebuke.
The charges are flimsy, but Netanyahu can’t fight them and govern the country.
Even as he has created one for himself.
The need for a functioning government is more important than any leader or party.
Lessons for the Israeli right.
