The mud has paid off for Netanyahu

The Israelis have made on the third attempt, a man to a surprisingly clear election victory in two weeks for bribery, fraud and breach of trust in court (read here the report on the election victory). You have made a decision in times of uncertainty for an experienced leader, despite the allegations of corruption against Benjamin Netanyahu, the first Prime Minister in the history of the country, the process is made.

The politicians of the right-wing nationalist Likud party was the main person responsible for an election campaign, the mudslinging, and it has paid off for the incumbent Prime Minister. According to the Motto that anything is stuck, has the Likud party, a campaign against Challenger Benny Gantz dangers – Sex, lies, a hacked cell phone and secretly recorded tape recordings. Also his mental state was called into question.

This has triggered uncertainty among the electorate and in the case of Gantz itself, in September, with its blue-and-white Alliance, the election is still nearly won. In the third campaign he was often sovereign. The former chief of staff of the army was on the Defensive and had to defend themselves, instead of attacks on his competitors devote. In two election campaigns, he remained vague and was not trying to position themselves politically to significantly. This time he tried the so-called "soft Rights" to address. This tactic didn't work. You instead prefer to remain in the Original with the copy. The content of different Blue-and-White is not much of the Likud, resulting in the formation of a large coalition in Israel, a unit called the government – could facilitate.

This vote may be considered as a free letter that a politician can allow in Israel, everything.

In these elections has also been shown that parties have won with a clear message: The ideology has triumphed over ambiguity. This is true for the Likud as well as the religious parties and the Joint list of Arab Israelis. The Gantz-run and multi-party blue-and-white Alliance and the left-liberal Alliance of the labor party, Meretz, and Gescher had to unite the Problem, different points of view, and also internal conflicts overlap. This prevented a clear positioning. Even Avigor Lieberman's ultra-nationalist party lost votes, because they are more focused this time on the battle against the, in their view, to the large influence of religious parties.

Netanyahu has fought and won – at least temporarily. He was able to better mobilise and did this already on day one after the election defeat in September. The US President Donald Trump at the end of January, introduced in the middle East plan has helped him. Netanyahu stand during the presentation to the side of Trumps, while Gantz was show in the back room of the plans – and, given the significant agreement in Israel announced had, he would implement it. This has led to a higher turnout of Arab Israelis, who make up twenty percent of the population of Israel, and to a better result for the Joint list. But with his restless campaign in which he had for almost every single group of voters to come up with something, could mobilize Netanyahu also more followers, and higher participation in the Arab sector to compensate.

His fight for political Survival is to put Netanyahu now before the court continue and not shy away, to discredit the rule of law and the judiciary to attack. He will be presenting his election victory as a Referendum on his legal problems, according to the Motto: you See, in spite of the accusations, the Israelis want me to continue as Prime Minister. This vote may be considered as a free letter that a politician can allow in Israel, everything. The price for Netanyahu's electoral success in the third attempt is a divided country and a political culture that even President Reuven Rivlin ashamed of, as he said on the day of the election.
