New York: Following the Hamas terrorist attacks on October 7 that resulted in the deaths of 1,200 to 1,400 people and the kidnapping of 239 citizens, many of whom are still in the Gaza Strip, The question is no longer whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will fall or not, but when it will happen?
Before the terrorist attacks, the country had experienced major social unrest due to the Prime Minister’s obsession with getting Israeli parliamentarians to pass a controversial bill despite massive demonstrations that attempted to thwart him.
This law restricts the Supreme Court’s ability to overturn any government action it deems unreasonable. It is the first in a series of reforms that have been questioned, and that aim to limit the power of the courts, something that the Israeli people strongly reject.
Regardless, Netanyahu continued his reform plan using his power in parliament, sparking general outrage in Israel. And in that hostile environment, On October 7, Israel’s national security was ridiculed, including the temporary loss of control of some military bases and their soldiers.
The Israeli population, the opposition and the de facto powers have pointed out and requested the resignation of the prime minister. This has not happened because the Jewish people unite amid crises that threaten their security, ignoring any internal disagreements.
A New York Times report has thrown Benjamin Netanyahu under the horses’ paws.
The newspaper “The New York Times” has revealed that the Israeli authorities were aware of Hamas’ terrorist plans a year earlier and underestimated it. That has completely thrown the prime minister under the horses’ legs, and amid Israel’s counteroffensive, he seems more like a lame duck headed to enter a shooting gallery in the post-war days.
According to the Times, Israeli authorities had a 40-page combat plan called “Jericho Wall,” which detailed a possible Hamas attack on southern Israel.
The Times claims that many military and intelligence officials saw it, implying that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may have seen it.
The documentation details how Hamas would attack Israel with rockets, use drones to turn off security and surveillance at the border wall, and occupy southern towns military bases, and Hamas’ intention to transfer hostages to Gaza.
The population is angry at Netanyahu’s government due to his inability to prevent an attack that appeared to have been preceded by numerous warning signs.
The attack was planned. A month before the attack, Hamas posted a video on social media showing soldiers using explosives to break through a replica border gate, enter vans and then advance building by building through a large-scale reconstruction of an Israeli city. , firing automatic weapons at paper targets with human silhouettes.
The video shows how the militants destroyed models of the wall’s concrete towers and a communications antenna, as happened on October 7.
So, since the Hamas extermination process ended, Benjamin Netanyahu’s political future looks very uncertain; he could even be criminally charged if it is determined that he also had knowledge of Hamas’ plan and did not do what was necessary to prevent it. “If he knew and did nothing, not only is he responsible, he is also guilty. And if he didn’t know, he is still responsible because he is the prime minister,” said Itzik Horn, father of two Israeli hostages.
