Speculation was rampant Monday night that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s decision to shelve the Conversion Bill, introduced by MK Elazar Stern (Hatnua), is part of his for new elections, possibly next spring.Bibi's best chance of bringing the Likud to another victory would be to finally shed his Center image and go Right where most Israelis feel safest and most comfortable. This isn't the Israel of the 1960's and 1970's. The demographic of larger families among the dati le'umi-national religious and the chareidi-ultra-Orthodox is felt very strongly in the ballot-box. Many religious and Right voters are looking for an alternative, far from the Likud and more reliable than Naftali Bennett's NRP aka Jewish Home Party. Bibi and Bennett have only one way to remain in power, and that's to tell the USA, UN, Europe etc. that we will not negotiate nor cooperate in the establishment of a new Arab terror state called "Palestine" within our State of Israel!
