Netanyahu Works to Avoid His Government's Collapse

https://www.voanews.com/a/netanyahu-works-to-avoid-his-government-collapse/4663454.html

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would make a last-ditch effort Sunday to avoid the collapse of a coalition government weakened by the resignation of his defense minister.

With political pundits predicting an early election in March, Netanyahu, head of the right-wing Likud party, was to meet later in the day with his finance minister, who is leading a charge within the coalition toward a snap poll.

The minister, Moshe Kahlon of the center-right Kulanu party, will urge Netanyahu to set an election date promptly, Kulanu officials said.

Lieberman sets wheels in motion

Defense Minister Avigdor Liebermanís resignation, announced Wednesday over what he described as the governmentís lenient policy toward an upsurge of cross-border violence with Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip, left the government with a majority of only one seat in parliament.

7. The guy who resigned quit because Bibi would not shoot more Palestinians.

That says a lot. How healthy is the Labor Party there?
