@besasley @LahavHarkov I don't think Kahlon would nominate Herzog. He may, however, join a gov't led by him.
Finding this Ukraine "Jews register or face deportation" story hard to buy. Smells like Russian agents provocateurs.,734…
@dandayan Agreed, but with new Kahlon party, there would be plenty of coalition options for Herzog even w/o Likud.
@LahavHarkov @besasley yes, unlikely Lapid/Deri could sit in same gov't, but doesn't stop them from nominating same PM, as they did w/ Bibi
@LahavHarkov @besasley You're right. I'm speaking more theoretically, about a new election, when Lapid will likely get less...
@LahavHarkov @besasley All the center-left parties + the religious = 65. Not even counting the Arabs, who would clearly prefer Buji to Bibi.
Watch Labor's Isaac Herzog. If Israeli MKs were asked to nominate a new PM today between him and Netanyahu, vote would be 65-43 in his favor
