Netanyahu Fails to Form a Coalition Government
Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was unable to form an Israeli coalition government, which gives opportunity for other parties to unite to form a coalition. Israeli party leaders that span the political spectrum have been meeting to discuss the potential of forming a government for the Israeli people. Those parties include Yesh Atid leader, Yair Lapid, Yamina chair, Naftali Bennett, and New Hope leader, Gideon Sa’ar.
This could be the end of the Netanyahu era of Israeli politics, and it’s been a very long one. He’s the longest serving Israeli prime minister with the Likud party. The outcome can only go one of two ways. These other parties could unite together despite their differences in order to form a government, thus ousting Netanyahu, which is what a lot of people want to do, or Israel will move into an unprecedented fifth election in two years, which keeps Netanyahu in the game. I just finished teaching at World of Life Bible Institute and there’s one thing that I saw in the book of Ephesians over and over again, and it’s the sovereignty of God. God’s got everything under control. So all we can do is pray and wait to see what happens.
