Netanyahu Disbands War Cabinet

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has always been a controversial figure.

Now, however, his administration is in turmoil, with a recent resignation from the War Cabinet.

After opposition leader Benny Gantz resigned his position, choosing to oppose Netanyahu from outside the administration, Netanyahu disbanded the Cabinet.

Don’t Need It

The War Cabinet was formed by Gantz when he called for a national unity government after the attack by Hamas.

The cabinet fell under the Security Cabinet, but it did have some autonomy.

Netanyahu’s insistence on continuing the war until Hamas has been completely eliminated has drawn controversy from within, which is likely what led to Gantz resigning.

His party wants him to openly oppose Netanyahu rather than work with him, so being a member of the War Cabinet was likely counterproductive in their eyes.

According to reports, right-wing politician Itamar Ben Gvir, the national security minister, who had been excluded from the War Cabinet, wanted to join.

Rather than give Gvir the post, Netanyahu chose to disband the cabinet and fold its duties into the Security Cabinet.

According to the Times of Israel, “Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant will hold small ad hoc consultations with other relevant officials to make key decisions on the war, while seeking final approval from the wider security cabinet.”

Netanyahu continues to face calls for new elections to have him replaced, calls that are being echoed by the Biden administration.

I am not sure how long after this war Netanyahu will remain in power, but I am fairly positive that right now, he is the only person in that government with the stomach to hold firm and fight Hamas till the end.

Terrorism organizations need only the smallest of seeds to continue to grow, so I understand and support the decision to fight until the end by Netanyahu.

Sadly, far too many people look at this war unrealistically, and if Netanyahu is forced to cave, the world immediately becomes a far less safer place.

It may take months or even years, but if Hamas is permitted to survive, it will strike again.
