Cantonné à siéger anonymement dans les rangs d’une opposition dont il aurait aimé prendre la tête,le chef de file de Yesh Atid est bien décidé à se bâtir une réputation
The hyperbolic tone of Yair Lapid and Avigdor Liberman’s conference in the Knesset to "save" Israel’s standing abroad illustrates part of the problem.
By HERB KEINON
With no clear political alternative to King Bibi, 2015 saw a disorganized, lackluster and ultimately failed attempt by members of Knesset to topple the premier.
Lapid decried, however, a political system which he said does not deal with national problems at hand, citing the combustible ammonia tank in Haifa and the recent transportation debacle as examples.

Yesh Atid leader accuses international body of becoming a "collaborator of Islamic fundamentalism."
“What happened this week is a sellout of Israeli values. It is shameful and I am sure every Israeli citizen is ashamed for them."
With no designated foreign minister in sight, Yair Lapid decided to become a diplomat in his fight against the government from the opposition.
The ruling will be a sigh of relief for the prime minister after a November hearing in which he was hit with significant criticism by the High Court on the issue.
By YONAH JEREMY BOB
"The Americans are now saying, 'We don’t want to do business with the current Israeli government'," said Lapid.
The Zionist Union would win 15 seats, the Joint Arab List 13, Bayit Yehudi 12, Yisrael Beytenu eight, Shas and UTJ seven, and Kulanu and Meretz 6.
Lapid said on Tuesday that “the UNHRC lost its legitimacy long ago” and the demonstrators will protest its “hypocrisy and disproportionality.”

By JEREMY SHARON,LIDAR GRAVÉ-LAZI
There is no Foreign Ministry because there is no foreign minister, says Lapid.
"The European Union is hiding behind legal jargon and trying to paint a picture that this is a legal matter," Lapid told DW News.
Goal of Lapid’s law was to increase haredi participation in the IDF and national service by 2017 by several thousand participants per year.
Lapid wrote about the need for national unity but not for a national unity government, which he currently opposes.
By Gil Stern Stern HOFFMAN,TOVAH LAZAROFF

The government may have given in to one of the opposition and opposition-within-the-coalition’s demands, to release the gas plan to the public, but that’s unlikely to get them the votes they need.
Two bill proposals in the Knesset are hoping to bring civil marriage to Israel and legalize gay marriage like in the US.
The Ministerial Committee for Legislation voted down Sunday a Yesh Atid proposal to ban perpetrators of crimes with moral turpitude from ever running for elected office.
Last week, Yesh Atid leader spent a week in the United States, where he tried to take away Herzog’s role as the de facto foreign minister of the opposition to Netanyahu.

Lapid: Netanyahu offered me Foreign Ministry
Netanyahu invited Lapid to meet with him as part of a series of meetings with the heads of opposition factions.
Ministers approve pushing off date to pass budget to November 5; opposition MKs complain government is not letting Knesset work.
After witnessing the heckling during the Prime Minister's speech at the swearing in of the 34th government, Lapid decided not to speak but he certainly has what to say.
Yesh Atid founder said that Netanyahu’s gambit to add ministerial positions in order to accommodate his coalition partners amounts to “a betrayal of the public’s trust.”
The secularist-centrist Yesh Atid announced on Friday that it will ask the High Court to block Netanyahu’s plan to expand the number of government ministers in his new cabinet.
Lapid says the Likud party has in effect agreed to reverse all the reforms enacted during the last government to integrate haredi men into the military.
After an election season in which parties questioned each other’s patriotic cred, politicians tell ‘The Jerusalem Post’ what the word means to them.
"We will fight for this legislation, because it is the right thing to do if we want a civilized country, with equal opportunities."
While Benjamin Netanyahu has preempted any serious challenge to his leadership, in the long-term Gideon Sa’ar could pose a threat and Yair Lapid is also surging in the polls.
