Israeli Politics in the Post-Netanyahu Era
In recent weeks, Othman Ibn Affan, the main thoroughfare in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, has begun to resemble Hebron’s infamous segregated Shuhada Street. Israeli police forces have established militarized checkpoints, are patrolling the area 24/7, forbidding the entry of Palestinians who do not live in the neighborhood, and allowing complete freedom of movement for settlers and right-wing activists.
After splitting from the Joint List ahead of the last Israeli election, the United Arab List (Ra’am), the Islamist party led by Mansour Abbas, ran a campaign that tried to market the party as “conservative” while concurrently offering a “new approach” to Arab politics in Israel. According to this “approach,” Ra’am could join any new Israeli government, regardless of whether it was left or right wing, even if it meant sitting with Kahanists in the same coalition. Ra’am’s break from the other three Arab parties in the Joint List, Abbas insisted, was set to be “historic.”

Unlike many of his predecessors, the young Benjamin Netanyahu didn’t plan on a career in politics. Former Israeli prime ministers such as David Ben-Gurion, Shimon Peres, and Ehud Olmert chose a political path at a young age. Yitzhak Rabin, Ariel Sharon, and Ehud Barak segued into politics after a military career, like many other generals.
Netanyahu, in contrast, grew up in the shadow of an older brother, Yoni, who was cultivated by his family — and particularly by their father, Benzion — as a future leader. Bibi, meanwhile, wanted to become an American businessman. It was Yoni’s death as a soldier during the 1976 commando raid in Entebbe, and the natural talent the young Benjamin exhibited during debates and TV appearances, that launched what is arguably the most successful political career in Israeli history.

Israel swears in new government, ending Netanyahu’s 12-year rule
Two weeks after Israel and Hamas agreed to an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire to end 11 days of intensive violence, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham announced on June 1 that Israel was planning to make a $1 billion request to the Pentagon to “replenish” its Iron Dome anti-missile system. The Republican Senator, who was visiting senior Israeli officials in Jerusalem, admitted that there had been “a big dustup” in Congress over the latest escalations, but insisted that “there’s a wide and deep support for Israel among the Democratic Party” to ensure the request would be approved.
While Graham’s assurances about bipartisan support are correct, the “dustup” in the United States has certainly not died down. Since the start of Israel’s assault on Gaza last month — the fourth large-scale operation in the strip in 20 years — the debate around Washington’s financial support for Israel, along with its long undiscussed moral quandaries, appear to have broken even more tremendous ground in the national political conversation. This comes despite mainstream U.S. media and social media companies skewing reporting on the escalations in Gaza, as well as on Israel’s efforts to expel Palestinian families from the Jerusalem neighborhoods of Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan.

Omaiyer Lawabne was withdrawing money from an ATM in Nazareth on May 11, the eve of Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan, when police forces descended on the area. Nearby, Palestinian citizens were protesting against the forced expulsion of families in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.
“I immediately started to walk away, slowly, in order to distance myself, as I wasn’t even part of the protest,” said the 21-year-old Lawabne. Some of the officers appeared to be special units and were heavily weaponized, he recalled. “At one point, I looked to my right and saw a police officer in full riot gear running toward me with his fist raised in the air to hit me.”
