Israel’s new so-called unity government is an obscenely expensive monster inadequate to deal with the challenges it faces.
Well, it appears that Israel will have a government finally after months and months of shoddy political maneuvering. That is the good news–all of it. The bad news is that this “coalition” government is a hunchbacked, three-legged monster. Furthermore, it is a monstrously expensive monster. Indeed, it is obscenely expensive at a time when a very large percentage of the population of Israel is hurting financially because of the measures taken to deal with the coronavirus epidemic.
