Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu succeeded in winning 60 seats for his bloc of right-wing and religious parties in Monday’s election, one less than he needed for a majority in the Knesset, according to exit polls on the 3 TV networks.
The outright victory in the third election in under a year is expected to enable Netanyahu to quickly form a right-wing coalition after having headed a caretaker government since December 2018.
Netanyahu spoke to the heads of the parties in his camp immediately after the exit polls were announced and agreed to form a strong nationalist government as soon as possible.
Ahh, victory is surely sweet, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is drinking in his amazing defeat of Benny Gantz in an unprecedented third election in Israel today.
Obviously God has more yet to do with Netanyahu, and this win could be a harbinger of our upcoming November elections.
Pray for Israel, pray for Prime Minister Netanyahu and his family, because though he is relishing his victory tonight, tomorrow he will be once again face to face with his enemies who seek to do anything to get rid of him.
He faces a criminal trial on what seem to be unsubstantiated charges of corruption, not unlike the Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump on equally-weak charges. Pray that God will give Netanyahu the victory there as well.
