Naftali Bennett was sworn in as Israel's new prime minister on Sunday, after winning a confidence vote with the narrowest of margins, just 60 votes to 59. His victory ends a 12-year grip on power by former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the country's longest-serving leader.
During the debate ahead of the swearing-in, Netanyahu assailed the coalition that ousted him from the Prime Minister's Office after a record 12 consecutive years, calling it a "weak" and "dangerous" government. Long considered the "magician" of Israeli politics, Netanyahu had survived years of challenges to his power, outlasting and outmaneuvering his opponents. But on this night, he had too many opponents who wanted to see him gone.
I wonder if Netanyahu will claim "Stolen elections" and his idiot followers will promise that he will return to power in Augest? LOL
