Benjamin Netanyahu Loses His Seat To Naftali Bennett

Israel has a new prime minister as Benjamin Netanyahu's rival Naftali Bennett wins a parliamentary vote to form a government.

This will be a wonderful opportunity for everyone who swore their problem was with Netanyahu and his government—and not, say, with Israel's very existence to welcome the new Israeli government and demonstrate their strong support for the Jewish state.

In doing so, Netanyahu argued that he had been right all along: Israel could perpetuate an occupation — a violent and repressive one — without paying a price in international legitimacy

Benjamin Netanyahu was prime minister for 15 years and 92 days. To put that in perspective: Netanyahu was prime minister for over ONE FIFTH of Israel's history

In the U.S., Netanyahu was once so popular that a 2015 poll found Republicans admired him as much as Reagan and more than the pope. But by the time Trump was elected and gave the Israeli right nearly everything they could ask for, Bibi was mired in a fight for political survival.
