Joining of Labour Party to Netanyahu's coalition will not lead to stability in Israel

Azerbaijan, Baku, March 25 / Trend , U.Sadigova/

Despite the fact that the Israeli Labor Party joined the coalition of Benjamin Netanyahu, the future right-wing government is unlikely to be stable in Israel.

"There a very big difference between the labor party and some far right wing parties which will join in, Political Science University of Haifa Professor Amatiza Baram said to Trend over phone. It is not excluded that this will lead to instability in the future government.

On Tuesday, Ehud Barak's Labor party agreed to enter into the governmental coalition of Benjamin Netanyahu, which is responsible for the formation of a new Cabinet of Ministers in Israel. A decision on joining the coalition was taken at the party congress of 680 in favour and 507 against.

Accession of the centrist Avoda Party to the Netanyahu, head of the Lukud Party, means that the future of the Israeli Government, led by right-wing leader Netanyahu, would not adhere to only the right-wing policy.

The agreement with Labour Party was achieved after creation of right wing coalition. This coalition unites Likud, Israel is Our Home and Shas religious party.  

The coalition will give Netanyahu the opportunity to shape the future Israeli Government before April 3.

Thirteen of Labor mandates will give Netanyahu-led coalition majority, namely 66 out of 120 seats in Parliament.

If Netanyahu could form a government, Barak will retain the post of Defense Minister of Israel.

Netanyahu believes that the government coalition with the Labor Party will be stable, Israeli media released.

However, divergent views in Israeli's foreign policy and negotiations with the Palestinians, Labour Party and right-wing forces of Israel could lead to instability within the coalition and future of the Israeli Government.

Likud and its allies Shas and Israel is Our Home have a rigid policy in the negotiations with the Palestinians. The leader of the Labor and the Israeli Defense Minister Barak supports the continuation of the peace process with the Palestinian Authority and establishment of peace in the Middle East.

Netanyahu's coalition with leader of Labor party Barak was not established on a stable basis,Political Science Bar Ilan University Professor Yehudit Auerbach believes.

"Internal dissatisfaction within the Labor and Likud will be greater. Netanyahu will not be able to give all satisfaction to all parties," Auerbach said.

The head of the Council of Arab-British Understanding (CAABU) Chris Doyle said that neither government coalition in Israel was stable.

"Instability in Netanyahu's coalition government could be due to differences of opinion and Labor and righ-wing forces," Doyle said to Trend over phone from London.

Not all coalition parties have common views in dealing with government issues.

Israel believes that joining to the governing coalition may lead to a split in the Labour party and some deputies from this party will become an opposition.

According to Baram, who supports the Labor party, the participation in the Labor right-wing coalition would help Netanyahu to carry out a more liberal and mitigation policy in the peace process with the Palestinians.
Netanyahu needs Barak's support, who has an extensive experience in defense and foreign policy, to weaken the radical policy of the other right-wing parties' coalition.

"Only with Barak's support, Netanyahu would be able to continue negotiations with the Palestinians," said Baram.

Delivering a speech in front of Arab and foreign businessmen, Netanyahu said his government would continue peace talks with the Palestinians, the Ha'aretz daily writes.

The leadership of the Palestinian Authority has expressed concern regarding the future of the peace process, although the head of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, declared that "the Palestinians are ready to cooperate with any government of Israel," Al Jazeera reported.

Last week, Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abu Al Gheit said that "establishment of a government coalition complicate peace negotiations, the Al-Gubs Internet newspaper said.

The problem to the future government of Israel may cause the policy of the Israel is Our Home party leader Avigdor Lieberman, who will be Minister for Foreign Affairs.

Lieberman supports the expansion of Jewish settlements in the west bank of Jordan River. This contradicts requirements of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, which was adopted at a conference in Annapolis two years ago.

Lieberman's policy may also exacerbate relations between Israel and the United States.

Washington, which is the main mediator in the talks, said that Netanyahu's government could complicate the peace process.

U.S. President Barack Obama said that Washington would continue to seek truce in the Middle East and problems of two states - Israel and Palestine, in spite of the difficulties that may arise in the negotiations because of the austerity policies for the future Government of Israel, the Israeli Ha'aretz newspaper said.
Obama said that the U.S. will pursue peace in the Middle East and refuses to cooperate with those who are against this.

Therefore, to negotiate with Lieberman, as the head of the Foreign Ministry, will be discomfort for the United States, says Baram. So Washington probably will prefer to cooperate with Prime Minister Netanyahu and leader of Labor Party Barak.

"If the Labor Party will be within Netanyahu's government, the U.S. will be easier to negotiate with Israel," said Baram.

Professor Auerbach believes that Netanyahu needs to maintain relations with Washington, so that to avoid disputes with the U.S. administration, it might soften its policy.
