Those who expect Netanyahu’s stature and ability to dominate Israel’s agenda to be severely diminished if he’s pushed out of office could end up sorely disappointed. For many Israelis, Netanyahu will remain the king-in-exile, for years to come. And even if he never makes it back into the prime minister’s office, his stamp on Israel will last for decades.
The new government is united only by the desire to replace Netanyahu. It’s unlikely to be capable of agreeing of any policy going forward on resolving the conflict. Neither is the new government expected to make any radical changes to Israel’s regional policy. It will continue to confront Iran’s nuclear program and proxies, though it may be less vocal than Netanyahu was against the Iran nuclear deal if the Biden administration rejoins it.
Netanyahu’s Israel is at war with itself and far from realizing any peace with its Palestinian neighbors. It will remain Netanyahu’s Israel long after he is no longer its prime minister.
