New poll surveys sample of Israelis from across the political and religious spectrum.
Since taking up his position as defense minister, Avigdor Liberman has worked hard to project a new, moderate image and allay concerns of alarmed critics.
It is pure politics that compelled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to bring Avigdor Liberman on as defense minister. But it will make regional peace even harder to achieve.
The new defense minister lays out his military credentials in a Facebook post.
"Cohesion of nation trumps attachment to greater Israel," defense minister says during first speech in new role.

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.
“I absolutely agree that the Arab [Peace] Initiative also has some very, very positive elements that enable a serious dialogue with all our neighbors in the region,” says Liberman.
Liberman is known for his fiery rhetoric, yet he has no ideological commitment to a greater Israel vision.
Expectations are that PM and Bennett will try to reach a compromise before a Security Cabinet meeting Sunday afternoon although there is concern that Bennett will skip the meeting.

Avigdor Liberman as Defense Minister is likely to be less impetuous than Liberman in opposition.
Environmental protection minister was the most moderate in cabinet, warned against extremism.
The minister informed his party leader, Moshe Kahlon of Kulanu, of his decision.
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?
Settlers have so much faith in Liberman and so hated Ya’alon, that they worked behind the scenes to unseat him and to replace him with the Yisrael Beytenu head.
Yisrael Beytenu MK Oded Forer declined to say whether or not his party would support the bill on conversion which UTJ lawmakers have promised to introduce in the new Knesset session.
By JEREMY SHARON
Those who have spoken to Liberman in recent days say he sounds determined to moderate his extremist image, which can enable him to run for prime minister in the future.
Opposition blasts signing of a new coalition deal that brings the far-right Yisrael Beytenu party into the government.
PM made the remarks at a join press address with Liberman at the Knesset after an agreement on the political partnership was signed.
By JPOST.COM STAFF,GIL HOFFMAN
The deal includes an allocation of nearly NIS 1.5 billion for pensions for disadvantaged retirees.
A ruling by the High Court of Justice in March gave de facto state recognition to independent Orthodox conversion courts.
MK Robert Ilatov, whose Yisrael Beytenu faction is set to join the coalition this week, is the opposition representative on the committee.
Former US ambassador to Israel tweeted on Sunday that while Liberman has made 'reprehensible' comments, he did support his boss' peace efforts.
Sources close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would like to complete a deal on Sunday so Yisrael Beytenu can enter the coalition on Monday.
"If Liberman wishes, Ya'alon will brief him on job," sources say.

Speaking on Channel 2’s popular Friday night news program, veteran journalist Roni Daniel reacted to Avigdor Liberman's replacing of Moshe Ya'alon as defense minister.
Contrary to the widespread sentiment shared by media commentators, Moshe Ya'alon wasn't blindsided by the move to fire him in favor of Avigdor Liberman.
By NOAM AMIR/MAARIV HASHAVUA
Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said Wednesday that she saw no reason for MK Robert Ilatov to leave the committee.
The West Bank is under Israeli military rule, which effectively means it is under Liberman’s rule.
Ya'alon laments "loss of moral direction"; Bayit Yehudi says that they will not ask for the Foreign Ministry; Kahlon urges critics to give Liberman a chance.

Fourteen months ago, his Yisrael Beytenu party nearly failed to pass the electoral threshold that was raised at Liberman’s initiative in order to block Arab parties from entering the Knesset.
In a meeting that lasted less than an hour Wednesday afternoon, Liberman accepted Netanyahu’s offer of the defense and immigration and absorption portfolios.
However, Liberman said that if Netanyahu makes a “serious and true offer,” he will consider it.

By JPOST EDITORIAL
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.

The question is which side will trump, will it be Mr. Avigdor or Dr. Liberman?
Liberman is a man who is easily bored. He has to be constantly in motion. He needs action. Even if he doesn’t admit it, he has lost interest.

The law stipulates that a person is innocent until proven guilty. The law also defends the right of the individual to privacy. But the police could not care less.
While these Arab MKs are consorting with Israel’s enemies, their constituents are being ignored and becoming more alienated.
