Israel might need to roll the proverbial dice again and go for new elections, because this atmosphere is simply too poisoned.
Like it or not, coalition or not, Netanyahu may continue as Prime Minister for quite a while.
One thing that Netanyahu does understand is that a Prime Minister should have as broad a coalition as possible to represent all sectors in Israeli society.
Obama’s policy is Saudi policy. That is where the irrational push to create a Palestinian state comes from, and that is where the handcuffs on the IDF are forged.
Netanyahu’s impending victory is due to the fact that the prime minister has done a reasonably good job, the economy is okay, terrorism is low, he’s kept out of trouble.
The big question, of course, is where does the Jewish Home get its new votes?
HaBayit HaYehudi keeps its momentum going, poll finds 43% of Bennett's voters are not religious.
For election purposes, the expulsion was scheduled for next April, because the PM fears losing even more votes to the right.
Hamas's celebrations of victory are based on fantasy and lies, and their joy won’t last when we hit them ten times as hard the next time.
Now, there's a fine exercise in the diplomatic niceties one must endure when one is prime minister of a small state in the near...
This morning, it appears that Bibi's worst nightmare is about to be realized, and this one could be a sea-change that would make the Likud Beitenu move seem like a parlor trick. According to Makor Rishon, retiring minister Moshe Kahlon has made a decision to return to political life after a two-week exile, and that he is about to announce very soon, maybe even today, Thursday, the creation of a new party.
This picture was taken November 21, 2011, outside the Knesset, during a demonstration against the high cost of living. It started to rain and...
We owe Bibi a debt of gratitude, regardless of the final results: at least it will be over quickly.
How can it be that in this clear time of Redemption, when millions of Jews have returned to the Land of Israel from the four corners of the world, in the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy that crises and setbacks like the evacuation of Migron still occur?
Following the minor storm that erupted on Monday over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's request to rearrange his portfolio which is in a blind trust—a request he eventually rescinded—Forbes Israel decided to dig into that portfolio, to find out how rich is Bibi. It turns out he's not crazy rich, and incidentally, close to half of the Netanyahus wealth is invested in their penthouse in the affluent neighborhood of Rechavia in downtown Jerusalem, and a villa in Caesaria.
When four of out four newspapers in Israel deal with any single subject one can count on the fact that there is a deliberate effort by some personnel to set the headlines on fire.
As an American I’m envious of Israelis, who have a leader who was a combat soldier and is also an intellectual, who actually knows something about history, war, economics and yes, even politics. We, on the other hand…
Our roundup today concludes with parental anxieties, which all of us with and without children share. It reminded me of the joke about a...
One of the questions posed to PM Netanyahu and his new coalition bride Shaul Mofaz by one of those pesky Israeli TV reporters was:...
After the Israeli Supreme Court struck down the Tal Law, which sought to encourage over time the inclusion of Haredim in military service, the court, for all intents and purposes, has required the state to draft some 60,000 Haredi youths this August.
