    In the background of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s trip to the United States and admittedly tense meeting with US President Barack Obama, backdoor procedural Likud politics were taking place. As noted earlier regarding Netanyahu’s internal Likud troubles, the Prime Minister had requested that internal Likud elections for the party’s Central Committee and local branches be delayed by 2 years since the party’s current membership is too right wing. In order for this to happen, the Likud’s constitution must be changed.

That means his internal party rivals led by Moshe Feiglin among others, could take control. “If they succeed,” said one of his associates, “the pressure on Knesset members will be enormous.
