Schism in 'Israel' grows over who will occupy Palestine 'better'
Israeli media cites Israeli occupation officials and senior officials warning about the role that might be assigned to Betzalel Smotrich and Itamar Ben-Gvir in the upcoming Netanyahu government that might have catastrophic consequences on "Israel".
Israeli media cited two former Israeli officials warning against appointing the leader of the so-called "religious Zionism" party Bezalel Smotrichas Minister of security and Itamar Ben-Gvir as Minister of internal security.
Israeli Channel Seven quoted the former Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot saying that "the appointment of Bezalel Smotrich as Minister of security and Itamar Ben-Gvir as Minister of internal security is a gamble."

Former Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu secured his victory in the Israeli elections last Thursday, as his far-right coalition made up the majority of the Knesset.
"It is a gamble not only because he served a partial military service, but also because he [Smotrich] lacks experience," Eisenkot added, explaining that Smotrich, "does not have the basic knowledge to deal with the enormous challenges facing the system."

The ex-Chief expressed that he is, "very worried about these two appointments, I think these two people are inexperienced and also have problematic views, and if they intend to implement what they committed to – "Israel" will have a hard time."
Bin Gvir often carried out attacks against Palestinians, by storming the Al-Aqsa Mosque or through his repeated incursions into the occupied neighborhoods of al-Quds, especially Sheikh Jarrah, guarded by the Israeli occupation forces.

"Smotrich cannot deny himself, and he will not deny his background in which he comes from," he said, warning that he [Smotrich] undermined the "delicate balances" in the West Bank and the "relations with the countries of the region".
According to Gilad, if Smotrich "applied his ideology", a "huge catastrophe" would occur.
The Israeli media also quoted a security source warning that "Smotrich's appointment to the post of Minister of security could lead to a dangerous escalation."

Amos Harel, a military commentator for the Israeli Haaretz newspaper, warned of negative repercussions of the appointment of Bezalel Smotrich as Minister of security, saying that, "it will not be limited to the Palestinian arena and the legitimization of settlement outposts, but will extend to the Arab arena and even cooperation with the United States."
