Minister and chair of Bayit Yehudi party, Naftali Bennett.

The primary road block is the position that Bayit Yehudi party head Naftali Bennett will receive.

Baruch Marzel.

Marzel not sorry Yachad party’s loss cost Bayit Yehudi seats in Knesset. Bennett accuses Netanyahu of thinking he is a sucker.

Yoav Horowitz

Who is Horowitz? He’s Netanyahu’s eyes and ears. He’s very close to him, literally his personal representative everywhere…

This is a chart of the rocket and missile arsenal that initiated Israel's counter terror Operation Protective Edge, and was used by Hamas and allied terrorists -- and was fired from site deep within the Gaza civilian population against Israel's families, in the thousands, for 50 days. At least 11 cease-fires were broken by Hamas.

in a new report, Amnesty International charges “Gaza armed groups’ with war crimes in last summer’s Operation Protective Edge.

If there are no surprises, Netanyahu is expected to form a coalition, after some tough negotiations, with the Likud, Bayit Yehudi, Kulanu, Yisrael Beytenu, UTJ and Shas.

One wonders how many Prime Ministers Herzog envisions sitting in that one chair at the same time.

Netanyahu is expected to have 61 recommendations in his favor.

There’s much disappointment within Yesh Atid as they head into the oppositions.

Final voter counts are in, if Yachad doesn’t petition the courts over voter fraud…

“The truth is it’s surprising to us as well, but it turns out each one of us voted their hearts.”

The anti-Bibi campaign’s quiet change in tax status both came too late and constitutes an admission of wrongdoing.

If the media hadn’t been so eager to oust Netanyahu, voter apathy could have made that happen.

Netanyahu said he wants to have a government formed within the next 2 to 3 weeks.

The overwhelming electoral victory by the Likud was nothing less than a revolution, and an absolutely clear mandate from the people.

At 50% of the votes counted, the Likud pulls way ahead… but what will the remaining 50% do?

A very happy PM Netanyahu declared victory at the Likud victory party.
