Israel might need to roll the proverbial dice again and go for new elections, because this atmosphere is simply too poisoned.

A similar statement was attributed to Bibi himself during his chat with Yair Lapid.
Bennett shouldn't have trying to play chicken against a pro.
It is to Jonathan Rosenblum’s great credit that he has written this critical essay in a Haredi publication.
