Benjamin Netanyahu ousted as Israeli prime minister

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.
After four elections in two years, Bennett’s incoming government breaks a long political deadlock and ushers in the most diverse coalition Israel has ever seen, including the first Arab party to serve in the government. In his speech before the Knesset confidence vote, Bennett celebrated the diversity and warned of polarization within the country.
“Twice in history, we have lost our national home precisely because the leaders of the generation were not able to sit with one and another and compromise. Each was right, yet with all their being right, they burnt the house down on top of us,” Bennett said. “I am proud of the ability to sit together with people with very different views from my own.”
Bennett became the premier as the leader of Yamina, a right-wing party with only seven seats in Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, making him the only prime minister in the country’s history with such a small faction. By contrast, Netanyahu’s Likud party won 30 seats in March’s election. Once again, however, Netanyahu could not cobble together a governing coalition with a majority of the 120 members of Knesset.
US President Joe Biden on Sunday congratulated Bennett in his first statement about the political situation in Israel, saying he looked forward to working with the new prime minister.
“Israel has no better friend than the United States,” Biden also wrote in his statement. “The bond that unites our people is evidence of our shared values and decades of close cooperation and as we continue to strengthen our partnership, the United States remains unwavering in its support for Israel’s security. My administration is fully committed to working with the new Israeli government to advance security, stability, and peace for Israelis, Palestinians, and people throughout the broader region.”

  1. Huh… couldn’t kill enough Palestinians to keep his presidency… oh well, time to retire comfortably and never pay any consequences for anything.

  2. I Told you someday you will felt suffering with out no one worry it means KARMA


  4. Was beginning to wonder if it was just too much to hope that this would happen… Thankfully, there's no need to wonder anymore! However WAY long-overdue this is, it's still so fu¢kin wonderful to see it! Any time a fascist, prejudice, sociopathic, dictatorial, soulless, greedy POS loses his/her grip on power it's a beautiful thing!

  5. The new administration is tip toeing around the Palestinian issue. No blatant message of reparations or reaching out here.

  6. Thanks Oncl Joe you are a real leader America could not have better president may god bless Palestinian and Israeli may peace be between them amen

  7. Michael Lubin's opinion is true and it appears from the sun that Pakistan is playing a two-faced game in the Afghanistan issue. They have taken billions of dollars from America and at the same time they have killed thousands of American and European soldiers over the past twenty years in Afghanistan. At the hands of terrorist groups and organizations and their intelligence soldiers, it is no secret to anyone that Pakistani intelligence has secret and deep relations with the Russians and the Chinese government. In the near future, the United States and the European Union will confess their remorse for their dependence on Pakistan

  8. LOL Netanyahu ousted!! Kinda like CNN being ousted as a News Source and thrown out of our Airports, FINALLY!! The news outlets of North Korea, China, Russia and Iran would be downright proud of CNN, which is Joe's own state run media who has no viewers!!

  9.

  10. Living in Israel I was concerned that Bibi would burn the house down rather than pass the keys to 'HIS ISRAEL' to anyone else.
    Hopefully he will go into opposition or retirement gracefully and let the 'new boys on the block' do the hard work of bringing the Nation back to a more together position.
    As the old saying goes: graveyards are full of people the World couldn't do without.
