Even after Netanyahu and Bennett's agreement on the new coalition, the National Security Council won't be taken into account; fateful decisions will largely be made on whims.

The new coalition seems stable enough for people to believe a mistaken email about a three-year budget, but will it use its super-stability to pull further to the Right than ever before?

The Sarona Market attack will be the first major test for newly appointed Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman.
Avigdor Liberman understands that there are no new tools in Israel’s security shed and so far is responding to this week’s terrorist attack in Tel Aviv with the same approach as his predecessor.
In such a system, politicians like Ya’alon, Liberman and Bennett would not necessarily have an interest in showing voters how they pushed the government to the brink.
