dont get your hopes too much
the only way for netanyahu to be ousted is if he will be put in jail

at this point Israel is permanently right wing even if netanyahu will go some other right wing leader will take his place leftists stand no chance and I dont see any way for Gantz to form a government unless likud will be ready to cooperate which is unlikely

"Predominantly" or "Solidly" may be more appropriate descriptions.

Indeed, most of the free world is probably under right-wing governance for a considerable time. The other way would expose us to threats from malicious groups or authorities, usually of Russian, Chinese or Arabian origin.

Yes this is a leadership spill(as we call it in Australia) between two right-wing candidates.

But you realise how nuts the situation looks to outsiders though right?

I mean in a normal western country a third election in less than a year is insane. Of course from Bibi supporters point of view, changing now would be certain third election defeat to Gantz (who will most definitely say the word "Finally" multiple times during his winning speech).

This looks like a fight to the death to non-israelis. A farcical one that could have easily been avoided.

You guys like to put a lot of your leaders (ex leaders) in jail eh? But it seems like a bit of a trend. I was reading the other day that Pervez Musharraf is getting the death penalty. For what I’m not sure...

Well...well... you sound angry. I understand. All those years the Arabs, and people like you, have been propagating lies about Israel in hopes of destroying it, but in the end they get nothing.

Lies, your lies also, do not work and they do not help matters and most importantly they do not change the facts on the ground.

Palestinian Arabs have very little claim to the land they are on right now. They should be thankful for having what they have, as little as it is.

In fact, as years went on, the Arabs keep getting less and less of what they asked for, and today, thank you Donald Trump, the Palestinian Arabs finally at the end of their collective efforts to get rid of the Jews.

It's not happening!

In fact, Israel is getting bigger! Israel is getting more prosperous. Israel is getting stronger. Arabs get next to nothing.

Arabs have shown their total impotence at self governing. They can't have a functional country. All they can do is scream and exist on the hand outs from the rich countries.

They should thank the Jews for feeding them for the past many decades.

Ponder that!

To be fair, few ethnic groups other than the white, the Jews and the Japanese can hold their countries sufficiently functional without being thugs.

And still, some Arab countries like Qatar and Oman seem sufficiently good.

Netanyahu doesn't appear to be racist to me. He has just accepted the Trump peace plan for Israel and the Arabs of Palestine (Gaza and the West Bank).
