The UAE encourages Netanyahu to ally with the Israeli far-right

Diplomatic sources revealed that the Emirati regime sent a secret message to the leader of the Likud party, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, after his victory in the Knesset elections a few days ago.

According to what was reported by Hebrew websites, the sources said that Abu Dhabi encouraged Netanyahu to ally with far-right parties to ensure stability in Israel’s rule and strengthen the alliance between the two sides accordingly.

The sources pointed out that the UAE is only afraid of a recurrence of the cycle of political instability in Israel, which causes a slow pace of strengthening the alliance and normalization with Tel Aviv and thus hopes for political stability in the governance scene.

The same sources confirmed that the UAE does not comment negatively on the necessity of the far-right parties to rule. On the contrary, it encourages alliances with it and ignores the Arab parties as punishment for its rejection of normalization.

Netanyahu, the longest-serving Israeli prime minister, is preparing to regain this position after the fifth elections that Israel has witnessed in less than four years.

Despite the divisions, Israel has moved to the right-wing camp. The “Government of Change,” which ruled for a year, brought together the left, the center, the right, and an Arab party for the first time, but it quickly collapsed because of violence and not because of its ideological diversity.

The Religious Zionist Party was the biggest winner in the Knesset elections, becoming the third-largest party in Israel.

Netanyahu is positioned to form a government, but his options are not simple. The clearest path to forming a government is establishing a narrow right-wing coalition.

Such a government would not only make Ben Gvir and Smotrich hold high ministerial positions but also allow them to maintain the balance of power within the government.

Netanyahu may not be an adventurer, but Ben Gvir and Smotrich are. This will have repercussions in Israel on Arab Israelis and the legal system, with the Palestinians and the potential increase in violence, and with the Arab partners in peace with Israel.

Senator Robert Menendez, a centrist Democrat, known for his support of Israel, has clearly warned of the repercussions for US-Israel relations if Smotrich and Ben Gvir take prominent positions in the government.

If Netanyahu chooses to form a narrow right-wing government, Itamar Ben Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich will be its representatives. Their open hostility to the Arabs in Israel, and the legal “reforms” they intend to enact, will weaken Israel’s image as a democracy.

According to the sources, the UAE established secret communication channels a few days ago with Itamar Ben Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich, in which it confirmed their support and that there should be no reservations about their alliance in the government and the promotion of relations between Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv in their presence, even if this is done as usual at the expense of the Palestinian cause.
