Op-ed: Prime Minister Netanyahu’s indecision on Gaza gave Defense Minister Lieberman an opportunity to resign ahead of the inevitable early elections, where he will be able to take on a role of the opposition.

Analysis: While the prime minister has no interest in giving Lieberman what he wants—early elections in which he'll use the political capital he got from resigning to gain power—he also doesn't want to capitulate to Bennett's ultimatum—the defense portfolio or the government falls. It appears Netanyahu has no choice.
