Loyalty oath and Bibi: more zigging after more zagging

In his own endearing (oh well...) manner:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instructed Justice Minister Ya'akov Ne'eman on Monday to prepare a new bill extending the loyalty oath, which is currently aimed at non-Jews, to include Jewish immigrants as well.
Of course, this amendment takes out the teeth Lieberman intended to give to that oath, but whatever keeps Bibi's coalition afloat, I guess.

In any case, Bibi shows again his steely political spine...
