Ripple Effects of Netanyahu's Far-Right Government

Former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is back on the scene to head a far-right government — still being formed — that will have implications for the Israel-Palestine conflict and Israel's relations with the US and its neighbors in the region. Most contentious is the likelihood of Ben Gvir, head of the far-right Otzma Yehudit party who has a conviction for racist incitement against Arabs and supporting a terrorist organization, playing a role in Netanyahu's coalition government. That makes another Israel-Palestine flare-up look more likely. An openly anti-Arab agenda could also trouble relations with Washington and Arab states alike, although normalization deals with Gulf Arab states and shared opposition toward Iran should help avoid a major breakdown.
