Israeli Elections This Week
Israelis will go to the polls Tuesday, April 9th, to vote for the political party they believe will push Israel forward. Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Likud party and the Blue and White party led by former IDF General Benny Gantz are neck and neck in the polls.
Benjamin Netanyahu is the longest serving prime minister for the state of Israel, so there’s a lot hanging in the balance here. And there’s a lot of major events happening in Israel right now that can determine this election. First, President Trump recently recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights and this, I think, helps Netanyahu’s poll numbers increase. Yet, how Netanyahu handles this next potential war with Gaza between now and the election could have some profound effects on whether or not he remains prime minister. However, whoever wins, as Christians, we know with confidence that God is the one who is in control.
