Mike Doran and Gadi Taub discuss the forces arrayed against Benjamin Netanyahu

May 1, 2024

The Biden administration is pressing for an end to the war in a hostage deal, while working to topple Benjamin Netanyahu’s government. It has many allies and tools in this effort: the threat to sanction an IDF unit, the looming specter of international arrest warrants from the Hague, the Israeli anti-Netanyahu press and, from within the cabinet, an attempt by Benny Gantz to push for accepting a near-surrender hostage deal. At the same time, the right flank of Netanyahu’s coalition has issued an ultimatum: should such a deal come to pass they will opt out and topple the coalition. Has Netanyahu reached the end of his rope?
