The relationship between Israel and the United States just got a lot more interesting.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is now the former Prime Minister of Israel.
In a very narrow vote, Israel’s parliament approved the new coalition that will evenly divide leadership time between Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid, with Bennett taking the first half of the split term.
The New Government
Netanyahu never really had an easy time at the wheel.
Most of his time as Prime Minister was during the Obama presidency, which means he had an ally that was not really an ally.
As a strong conservative, he and Obama rarely saw eye-to-eye and by the end of Obama’s time in office, the relationship between Israel and the United States was clearly strained.
When Trump took over, it changed everything in terms of what Netanyahu was able to accomplish, but we were already headed backward with Joe Biden now living in the White House.
This new government will be far more along the lines of what Bernie Sanders and the Squad have in mind for Israel than conservatives.
However, the one challenge Biden will have is that Bennett, like Netanyahu, opposes the Iran nuclear deal…
Bennett: Iran Deal gave Iran billions of $, international legitimacy. Returning to the deal is a mistake that will once again give legitimacy to one of the violent darkest regimes in the world. Israel will not let Iran get nuclear weapons, will maintain total freedom of action.

Netanyahu has blasted this process from the start, calling it one of the greatest frauds in the country’s history.
However, while he has been ousted as Prime Minister, he will now lead the opposition, representing the Likud Party in the Knesset.
After he was ousted, he had only three words to say… “We’ll be back.”
