JD: Winkie, what is wrong with the political process there in Israel?
WM: Well what is wrong is that we cannot seem over the past three elections to firmly have one coalition set in government with no possibility for being juggled around or dislodged or people breaking off for the regular four year period. The voting electric has not given either the Likud or any other large party a significant number of seats in Israel. It’s a Parliamentary Democracy. A coalition of 61 seats is required as the majority out of the 120 seats in the Knesset. You always have shop around for coalition partners and that always leads to a certain amount of instability. This last government was horrendous to tell you the truth.
JD: Do you think this fourth try will do the trick this time?
WM: Well it depends on two major relatively new center right parties both of them claiming not to join with Netanyahu after the elections. And so the question is if I can shorten my answer these two gentlemen will have to make a decision. Do they stay away from Mr. Netanyahu or do they come in and under what circumstances? Because according to the latest polls we’re seeing this past week Netanyahu has with one of those two parties over 60 seats of his coalition. I would presume Jimmy that there will be a lot of pressure on either one of them to quite fulling around and join Netanyahu. Let’s get four years of government and argue only at that end of that four year period rather than immediately after the elections getting into arguments one with another.
JD: Winkie Medad explaining why the upcoming Israeli elections are key to stability in the Middle East.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
This fourth Israeli election within a two year period of time reveals how the Lord uses human government and political leaders to put His end of times plan into place. In Genesis 9:6 tells us of how the Lord created human government and Revelation 17:17 reveals how the Lord then uses political leaders to accomplish His will for the end times. We can stand on the sidelines watching all of this happen as Israel goes to the polls once again the fourth time in two years.
