Event 1: At 10:00 PM, PM Livni announces that negotiations with Shas have reached a deadlock and we are headed to elections.
Event 2: At 1:00 AM, by order of DM Barak, hundreds of troops destroy Noam Federman's house near Hevron with no warning and a maximum of violence and cruelty (press barred) predictably leading to local hotheads making an ugly scene (press invited) predictably leading to the usual suspects condemning all settlers and fanning the flames of hatred.

If you think this is a coincidence, ask yourself: cui bono?

To the benefit of the same majority of Israel.

Also note a spate of attacks on IDF Chief Rabbi Ronski (sp?) over non-issues like him visiting Jewish security prisoners and teaching them Torah.

I also predict in the coming days that Yigal Amir will "accidently" be given access to make remarks to reporters which will be "newsworthy". This has happened before in the run-up to the annual Rabin memorial rally and hate-fest. The SHABAS (Prison service) arranges this in order to "rally the Leftist troops". Since the Left is ideologically dead and in terminal decline, the only thing that unites them today is hatred for the religious Zionists and YESHA people.

Anonymous-
I am sorry I didn't make myself clear. I agree with you. However, the political Right in Israel is dead also. What I meant is that the Left is dead ideologically and its traditional supporters have no reason to support the traditional Leftist parties. They have no platform they can agree on or mobilize their people. Note how the ideological strongmen of the Left, like Yossi Sarid, Ran Cohen and Yossi Beilin have all thrown in the towel.
I do believe that most Israelis now realize there is not going to be peace with the Palestinians in the foreseeable future. This is a major contribution to the death of the ideological Left. However, this does not mean that there is no danger of further unilateral withdrawals, but they will be carried out by the Likud (they will tell Right-wing voters..."ou have to support this withdrawal...would you rather have the Left in power") after being proposed by the Left. There is no longer any difference between the parties, they all follow the same economic policies which are dictated by the Bank of Israel and the financial barons of the country, so elections are now based purely on personalities.
This is actually a very dangerous situation.
