12-05-14 Larry Derfner 972mag.com on Israeli elections

972mag.com political writer Larry Derfner discusses the upcoming Israeli elections which will be held on March 17 following the collapse of the  ruling coalition of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Derfner argues that Netanyahu's Likud colleague Moshe Kahlon who is a slightly conservative centrist, could help redirect Israel from Netanyahu's hardline rejectionist anti-peace policies. Derfner discusses how Kahlon still may not be the person who can revive the peace process, but he could be more amiable to viewing two-states and a Palestinian State. 

Netanyahu has been one of the most rightwing extremists in Israel and he has carefully redirected Israel away from the peace process and used his office to provoke violence and confrontation.

Derfner appeared on Talk of the Town Radio with host Ray Hanania, managing editor of The Arab Daily News online newspaper www.TheArabDailyNews.com and broadcast live on 1450 AM Radio in Chicagoland and simulcast live online at www.YahalaVoice.com.
