Itamar Ben Gvir and Binyamin Netanyahu at Loggerheads.

Itamar Ben Gvir is constantly being isolated from the decision-making process when it comes to security issues. Policy that clearly belongs under his ministerial authority. Netanyahu is a past master at marginalizing his outspoken government ministers by excluding them from having any overt influence on policy decisions. He saps their resolve and crushes their enthusiasm till they acknowledge the futility of striving to make a difference in the countries wellbeing in the case of Ben Gvir its security is compromised through his isolation from important decisions.

Itamar Ben Gvir is weakened in setting the agenda of government and in mobilizing the necessary political support to bring about successful outcomes for Israels internal security. leading to the saving of Jewish lives. It is in fact a question of leadership. For Netanyahy its more important to retain the status quo than to allow a dedicated minister to apply a scheme of causation based on observed regularities, analogies, patterns, cycles, trends or tendencies. An extrapolation of this approach would if allowed lead to a rigorously effective methodology, which would be appropriate in combating the security implosion taking place within Israels borders.

How long will Itamar Ben Gvir be content to swim against the tide, with mixed success? Before he acknowledges his lack of success in achieving his constructive aims due to Prime Ministerial interference. If Ben Gvir can sell his vision about the direction in which policy ought to be developed while projecting electoral appeal and gaining ministerial support he may have a future in this current government. Otherwise his prospects are diminishing daily leading to his defection from a Netanyahu led government.

Time will tell!
