The new government is welcoming.
Skin and sinews, offices, and new names such as the Ministry of National Security instead of the Ministry of Internal Security, which was once simply called by its name - the Ministry of Police, are emerging.
And to the ministry, under its new name, they add police companies in IOSH, and add the neighborhoods to the Negev and Galilee portfolio, but remove the periphery from it in favor of the Shas.
And the Ministry of Finance is given the civil administration in Judea and Samaria and other kinds of patents, after which who will protect them?
A believing man will say that he who sits on high knows the first as well as the last, and he will say to the doubter that you will see, and he will be pleasantly surprised.
There is also another possibility - that the one sitting in the heights has a sense of humor and is bursting with laughter from the salad that is about to be served to us.
The Ehud Barak government that was established in 1999 collapsed in on itself, also because people were appointed among them that had nothing to do with the position they held.
Former Chief of Staff Amnon Lipkin-Shahak was appointed Minister of Tourism while Barak left the security portfolio in his hands, and Prof. Shlomo Ben Ami became Minister of Internal Security. He was like a fish in a pond without water. In the end, when everything was already collapsing, he also received the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which was sewn on him like a pillow for a tender palm.
While then it was done due to lack of experience, this time it is impossible to suspect Prime Minister-designate Netanyahu that his experience is lacking.
The question is, why does he appoint certain people to certain positions?
Like appointing Ben Gabir as the Minister of Police, even though he previously rubbed shoulders with the police from the other side, as a convict.
True, it happened quite a few years ago and since then he has moved to represent defendants, and yet.
And when you hear a Givat soldier tell an opponent of occupation that Ben Gavir will make order, we can only hope for the best.
And what about the appointment of a representative of the Haredi Torah Judaism faction to the Ministry of Social Equality?
Read the sentence again - a person of Torah Judaism will be responsible for social equality in the country.
There is no doubt that he will take care of individual rights without bias and without any bias, and in the name of social equality he will also make sure that everyone enlists in the army in the name of social justice and equality.
Netanyahu wins on all these moves.
As someone who has already built governments, it is difficult to understand where he is leading.
Key portfolios were transferred to relatively small coalition parties, while Likud itself was left with remnants.
Is it because his friends in Likud have no alternative that he believes they will swallow the frogs?
Or maybe, really, only the way to cancel the cases against him in court is in front of his eyes, and therefore he gives a lot to his partners?
He understands what Bezalel Smotrich understands - that without giving, and a lot, he has no government, and no changes in laws.
Smotrich insists on his demands, because he probably estimates that after he gives his hand to reforms in the law that will also allow the annulment of the law, Netanyahu will ask to get rid of him and Ben Gabir and will want to replace them with centrist parties;
The timing will be in about two years, when they will rotate the positions of the ministers.
Netanyahu knows that an extreme right-wing government will paint him in gloomy colors in the world, and as the son of a historian, he will not want to be remembered as the one who darkened Israel.
