After four elections in two years, Bennett's incoming government breaks a long political deadlock and ushers in the most diverse coalition Israel has ever seen, including the first Arab party to serve in the government. In his speech before the Knesset confidence vote, Bennett celebrated the diversity and warned of polarization within the country."Twice in history, we have lost our national home precisely because the leaders of the generation were not able to sit with one and another and compromise. Each was right, yet with all their being right, they burnt the house down on top of us," Bennett said."I am proud of the ability to sit together with people with very different views from my own."Netanyahu's reign is over for now. He leaves behind a wealthier, more divided Israel and a stalled peace process Bennett became the premier as the leader of Yamina, a right-wing party with only seven seats in Israel's parliament, the Knesset, making him the only prime minister in the country's history with such a small faction. By contrast, Netanyahu's Likud party won 30 seats in March's election. Once again, however, Netanyahu could not cobble together a governing coalition with a majority of the 120 members of Knesset.US President Joe Biden on Sunday congratulated Bennett in his first statement about the political situation in Israel, saying he looked forward to working with the new prime minister.Read MoreBiden also spoke with Bennett on the phone, according to a readout of the call from the White House."The leaders agreed that they and their teams would consult closely on all matters related to regional security, including Iran," the White House said."The President also conveyed that his administration intends to work closely with the Israeli government on efforts to advance peace, security, and prosperity for Israelis and Palestinians."A statement from Bennett's office said the two leaders"emphasized the importance of the alliance between Israel and the United States, as well as their commitment to strengthening ties between the two countries, and maintaining the security of the State of Israel.During the call, Bennett also expressed appreciation for Biden's"support for Israel during the recent operation in Gaza," according to the readout.Israel's new Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and his coalition partner Ayeet Shaked speak behind Benjamin Netanyahu during the Knesset session.'We'll be back soon'During the debate ahead of the swearing-in, Netanyahu had assailed the coalition that ousted him from the Prime Minister's Office after a record 12 consecutive years, calling it a"weak" and"dangerous" government. Long considered the"magician" of Israeli politics, Netanyahu had survived years of challenges to his power, outlasting and outmaneuvering his opponents. But on this night, he had too many opponents who wanted to see him gone.After touting his accomplishments throughout his years in office, Netanyahu assailed his rivals."You call yourself the guardians of democracy, but you are so afraid of democracy that you are ready to pass fascist laws against my candidacy -- the language of North Korea and Iran -- in order to maintain your regime," he said, referring to speculation that the new government would impose term limits or make it illegal for someone who has been indicted to be Prime Minister. Warning that the new government would not stand up to Iran, Netanyahu warned his internal rivals and outside enemies,"We'll be back soon."Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends the special session in the Knesset on June 13.Common groundBennett's path to victory seemed all but lost during 11 days of fighting between Israel and Palestinian militants last month, when Netanyahu appeared to scuttle any chances of the opposition parties forming a government to replace him. But Yair Lapid, head of the centrist Yesh Atid party which holds 17 seats, forged the agreements between the different parties that led to the end of Netanyahu's grip on power. The arrangement places Bennett at the head of a coalition that includes right-wing, left-wing, and Arab parties, united largely by their desire to dethrone Netanyahu.These disparate interests will challenge the coalition to find common ground on key issues, such as what policy to pursue with the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank or how to manage the relationship with Gaza. The international community, including the United States, are pushing for the renewal of a peace process between the Israelis and Palestinians, but this government is ill-equipped to handle such negotiations, since two of the parties are vocally opposed to the establishment of a Palestinian state. Instead, Bennett will focus on domestic issues during his two years as prime minister, before he hands the reins to Lapid according to their coalition agreement. These will include the relationship between religion and state, the cost of living, and quality of life issues. Israel also has not passed a budget since March 2018; the newly anointed government has three months to enact one or the Knesset will dissolve and the country will once again head to elections by law.

Netanyahu era ends in Israel as new government survives key parliament voteBREAKING: Israeli PM Netanyahu ousted as new government survives key parliament vote, overcoming the final hurdle on its path to unseating him and taking a fragile hold on power.

Probably bc he and Trump like eachother ByeByeBibi The hold on power of the new Israeli government may be “fragile”, as you describe it, but so was Netanyahu’s, not to mention he was corrupt as hell.
