Recently, Professor Waxman published an article regarding the results of the Israeli election in The Jewish Journal, where it was then posted on the website for the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs.

Although some reduce Netenyahu’s statement to no more than fear-mongering, others, namely the Israeli public, consider it vital to establishing the security of the nation. Reelecting Prime Minister Netenyahu illustrates how despite recent economic downturns occurring through his term, the Israeli public would rather have a sense of security.
