It was Israel’s fourth national ballot in two years.The governing lineup comprises a patchwork of small and medium-sized parties from across the political spectrumThe deal includes the United Arab List, which would make it the first party of Palestinian citizens of Israel ever to be part of a governing coalition in Israel.United Arab List’s leader Mansour Abbas has cast aside differences with Bennett, and said he hopes to improve conditions for Palestinian citizens who complain of discrimination and government neglect.“We decided to join the government in order to change the balance of political forces in the country,” the 47-year-old said in a message to supporters after signing the coalition agreement.Abbas’s party said the agreement includes the allocation of more than 53 billion shekels ($16bn) to improve infrastructure and combat violent crime.It also includes provisions freezing demolition of homes built without permits in Palestinian villages and granting official status to Bedouin towns in the Negev Desert, a stronghold for support, the party said.But he has been criticised in the West Bank and Gaza for siding with what they see as the enemy.“What will he do when they ask him to vote on launching a new war on Gaza?” said Badri Karam, 21, in Gaza.“Will he accept it, being a part of the killing of Palestinians?”Israel’s treatment of Palestinians – increasingly seen as unfair – turns younger churchgoers away from Christian ZionismIsrael’s new ‘change government’ will likely change nothing other than the country’s prime minister.UN says 15 healthcare centres and a water desalination plant were hit during the Israeli onslaught on Gaza.Yair Lapid tells Israeli president he can form a coalition government that would end Benjamin Netanyahu’s 12-year rule.Follow Al Jazeera English:
