Israel’s Netanyahu loses key coalition partner
Kadima » The moderate party pulled out in a feud over attempts to reform the military draft.

Livni might now try to take another run at the Kadima leadership. Analysts have also speculated that former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, cleared in a high-profile corruption case last week, might also try to jump back into politics. Olmert confidants say he will not make any decision until he resolves another pending corruption case.

Yaron Ezrahi, a political science professor from Hebrew University, said Netanyahu would weather the storm.

He noted that peace efforts with the Palestinians have been stalled during Netanyahu’s three-year tenure in any case, and there was little momentum to revive them.

"Who is talking about the peace process today?" said Ezrahi. "The peace process is paralyzed by the two leaderships, and not by the peoples, who are tired of war and craving peace."

Instead, Netanyahu will remain focused on working with the U.S. on preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons — an issue for which he has broad public support.
