And doesn't Gantz get to take over at some point if there's no new government?

But it might not look good, and the question is what is the strategy going forward?

I think at this point good looks are out of the equation.

R Shmuel Eliyahu, one of Smotrichs rebbes, opens the door to a government with UAL votes. There is a good chance R Drukman will concur and Bibbi can form a narrow government. Bennet already agreed to support it in principle, though they are still haggling over his positions.

For arguments sake, the Arabs are 20% of Israel, so if theyd all leave, we can do with the 7/8 of doctors left...

Mansour Abbas's (UAL) stated potential willingness to join Bibbi's bloc and carry it over the line to 61/63 is exposing a noteworthy ideological delta in Bibbi's camp, on one side Charedim who see the Jewish state (at best) as an instrument of Jewish safety and religious prosperity, with RCK openly stating pro-religion Arabs are a better governing ally than atheist Jews, while on the other hand the religious zionist Mizrachi (Smotrich/R Drukman) see Jewish sovereignty of Israel as a lofty ideal worthy of sacrificing Jewish safety & religious sanctity, so the idea of being governed by Arabs is abhorrent beyond consideration.

In the middle, Bibbi himself has his lips sealed and hasn't said anything about it since the elections, and the Chassidim question the tactical & strategic superiority more than the ideological debate. Public opinion polls are showing the difference is on the individual voter level, not only the leadership.

The equation may have changed dramatically.

Yair Lapid flew to DC on Holocaust memorial eve. At first people raised eyebrows, but Haaretz is reporting somebody who matches his description leaked a top secret Israeli intelligence/defense operation in enemy territory, without realizing it was postponed and didnt occur yet - seriously endangering the operatives and risking the mission. He flew to the US in a desperate attempt to stop the publication of the story.

If true, Lapid will quite possibly be arrested for treason, or at the very least resign.
