Earlier this week, I mentioned the tension between the political party Israel Beitenu and the religious Israeli parties. Both voting blocs are needed for Benjamin Netanhahu to form a “right-wing” coalition government.
I was correct about the tension, but I incorrectly attributed it to a dispute over civil unions for gay couples. Actually, the dispute is over whether civil marriage, in addition to religious ones, should be permitted in Israel. Currently, Israel allows only religious marriages.
I regret having made such a foolish error.
