Lieberman plays with fire

Israel Beitenu’s leader has promised his party that he will leave the government coalition if police carry out the court’s order to destroy the highly contentious outpost of Migron. While strategically irrelevant and politically commendable, his action constitutes a crime—he is effectively blackmailing the government into violating a court order. Since the court already holds the keys to Lieberman’s prosecution on more important charges, however, this new ‘crime’ weights little on his prospects.

Lieberman has also promised to leave the coalition if the government resumes tax transfers to the PA. We will be very much surprised if the cabinet withholds the payments much longer.
