In retrospect, is there anything Netanyahu could have done differently?
If the Israeli government’s stated goal was to “change the paradigm” that governs its management of such conflicts, then much of the business was left unfinished
If Netanyahu fails, there is no guarantee that his rivals would reap the fruits of their stubborn resistance
Israel still hopes it can square its position with the Biden administration
Election reform might be the least of President Reuven Rivlin’s worries right now
Having said all this, Bibi, the chareidim, and the religious right of all stripes have reason to be cheerful at this hour
