ISRAEL ELECTION UPDATE “God told me to vote for Bibi.”
Messiahs Mandate, Ron Cantor, March 3, 2020
Early headlines around the world and here in Israel declared a big victory for Benjamin Netanyahu. But in the truth, we are in the exact same position as were after the election last April.
For this to be a victory for Bibi, he would have to have won two more seats getting 61 seats—which would mean another government with the orthodox, who steal from the country and don’t serve in the Army.
New Year, Same Result
With 90% of the vote counted, he only has 59 seats in his Right Wing/Religious coalition. It could go up or down—but probably will not at this point. Israelis find themselves in the same stalemate as last year. The one difference is that in that election Blue and White was tied with Likud at 35 seats. This time, Likud clearly won 36-32. But the end result is the same.
Unless the secularist Liberman will work with the Religious parties, Bibi cannot build the coalition he wants.
