How a fascist party brought into Israel’s parliament by Netanyahu helped him start the war he wanted

The day after a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas went into effect, ending 11 days of mutual bombardment that resulted in the deaths of some 250 Palestinians, 10 Israelis, and three Asian workers, mainstream Israeli commentators piled on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, accusing him of launching the war for his own personal benefit.

The pundits noted that Israel’s pulverizing assault on the Gaza Strip began after the leader of the next-largest party in parliament had been handed the mandate to form a new government – one which would end Netanyahu’s twelve-year run as premier and strip him of the immunity he needs to stay out of prison, if he is ultimately convicted of the multiple corruption charges for which he is currently on trial.

All along, Netanyahu was equipped with the tools he needed to trigger a war that would preserve his control over the government.

In the week that led up to the heinous hostilities of the last two weeks, intense conflict erupted between Palestinians and Jews in occupied East Jerusalem at two locations: the neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, where Palestinian families are being evicted from their homes, to be replaced by Jewish settlers, and on the Noble Sanctuary, the esplanade of Islamic holy sites at the heart of the Old City.
