Peace Now’s Analysis of the Coalition Agreement
between the Likud and the Jewish Home Party
The coalition agreement between the Likud and the Jewish Home party (Bayit Yehudi) reveals the plans of the new government and indicates its intentions, including:
1. Granting the settlers control over the construction of settlements and over Israel’s authority in the West Bank, while allocating more funds to the settlements.
2. Passing legislation and reforms that change the democratic rules of the game.
3. Allocating public funds to bolster the political power of the Israeli Right.
This agreement, which includes a Jewish Home stronghold on a variety of positions directly related to settlement development, constitutes a clear danger to the possibility of arriving at a two state solution and illustrates the true intention of the current government – massive settlement expansion and the silencing of opposition to the occupation.
