In a rare case of disagreement with Dry Bones, I don't quite see this motley crew as not trusting Netanyahu. I see two different things:
- The party leaders who have signed with, or have promised to sign with Bibi all want to replace him as Prime Minister.
- It's not that they don't trust Bibi, he doesn't really trust them.
Tsippi Livni, Yair Lapid, Naftali Bennett and Shaul Mofaz are the party leaders who've signed up (according to media leaks) with Bibi along with Avigdor Lieberman. They all consider themselves national leaders and potential Prime Ministers.
Mofaz and Livni have been rapidly losing support, while Lapid and Bennett have captured the imagination of the public. No doubt that Netanyahu will have a very challenging time trying to keep them all in line and functioning as a government.
Good luck Israel!
