Netanyahu Disbands War Cabinet After Opposition Leaves; Security Cabinet Takes Over

Published June 17, 2024

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu disbanded the War Cabinet on Monday, allowing the Security Cabinet to take over most of its functions, following the departure last week of opposition politician Benny Gantz and his party.

The War Cabinet had been formed when Gantz brought his party into an emergency national unity government in the fall. It remained subordinate to the Security Cabinet, but allowed the coalition to hash out decisions and differences.

As Breitbart News reported, Gantz left last week and now opposes the Netanyahu government from the outside, amid calls for new elections. Gantz faced pressure from his own base to oppose Netanyahu instead of continuing to work with him. The Biden administration also has been pushing for new elections to remove Netanyahu, whom it sees as an obstacle to the White House’s plan for an Iran nuclear deal and a Palestinian state (which most Israelis now oppose).

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the security cabinet last night that the war cabinet — the small forum created on October 11 to manage the campaigns against Hamas and Hezbollah — has been officially disbanded, the Prime Minister’s Office tells The Times of Israel.

The establishment of a narrow war cabinet was a core demand of National Unity party chair Benny Gantz to join the coalition.

Gantz, one of the three cabinet members, bolted the coalition last week, taking with him Gadi Eisenkot, one of the three war cabinet observers.

Now that the emergency unity government is no more, the war cabinet that emerged as part of that arrangement is no longer relevant, a PMO official explains.

The dissolution was anticipated, as far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir has been lobbying to be added to the forum.

Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant will hold small ad hoc consultations with other relevant officials to make key decisions on the war, while seeking final approval from the wider security cabinet.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
