Jerusalem, March 25 - the crisis, which has been brewing for several years, is now boiling over, thanks to the Corona crisis. 
Interim Knesset Chair Yuli Edelstein resigned today, refusing to permit a vote, electing the permanent new Chair (his replacement), defying a Supreme Court edict.
Reporter Tal Schneider: "Knesset Chair Edelstein resigned and adjourned the Knesset until Monday, March 30, would not permit election of a new Chair".
Edelstein's attempt to lock up the Knesset failed, when MKs of the newly elected narrow majority refused to leave the edifice.  MKs remaining locked inside, with Knesset Guard and Israel Police outside, hundreds of law-abiding, non-violent demonstrators are partying their protest outside the main gate.
Hundreds of other protesters are gathered in front of the Supreme Court, where a hearing is conducted this evening in a contempt process against Edelstein.
The main demands of the protesters is convening the Knesset tonight, voting a new permanent Chair into office, and then voting on a bill to prohibit a Defendant in criminal prosecution on corruption charges from being appointed prime minister... The enactment of such bill would make Netanyahu's chances of regaining his appointment and escaping his criminal prosecution slimmer.
In the meanwhile, the Interim Netanyahu government has again issued this afternoon emergency regulations, bypassing Knesset approval, further restricting movement, and giving the "Mossad-War Room" and Shin-Bet wide ranging "Top Secret" authorities, in a purported effort to combat the epidemic...
Attorney Yoval Yoaz, commenting on Journalist Barak Ravid's English post, writes: "When you read it in English, you realize this is not "like" a regime change. This is a regime change in real time."
One my call it "collapse of the regime", "constitutional crisis" (in a nation with no constitution), "social disintegration", or "loss of social contract". Regardless of the academic designation, it it obvious that the regime has entered a period of catastrophic instability.
A main concern is the potential eruption of violence, given the large number of armed civilians, mostly settlers. The publication of Trump's "Deal of the Century" prior to the latest (3rd within a year), early March general election led them to believe that major parts of the Palestinian territories would be annexed by now. The circumstances surrounding Trump's plan should be considered a serious intervention in the March election, in favor of Netanyahu. Regardless, as was the case in the preceding two elections, Netanyahu and his allies failed to win a majority that would allow him to form a government. With the passage of time, it would probably be judged that together with the conduct of Adviser Jared Kushner, Middle East Envoy Greenblatt , and Ambassador David Friedman Trump's conduct affected destabilization of the Israeli political system and the lawful regime.
Of note, by mid-afternoon, it was announced that joint US-Israeli air combat drill was postponed over "coordination" problems. Yesterday it was still on schedule.
