The war in Ukraine and growing unrest in Iran pose challenges for Israel, but the biggest problem will be if Netanyahu is unable to restrain his right-wing coalition partners.
Looking back over 2022 and forward to 2023, three of the events of the past year are sure to feature also in the coming year.
1. The Russia-Ukraine War.
2. The demonstrations in Iran.
3. North Korea’s increasing belligerence.
The war will continue until Putin decides to call it off or is deposed. It is as simple as that.
