Deadlock In Israel

The people of Israel held an election. The people of Israel had an opportunity to show the world there was a desire for a just peace with Palestinians. The people of Israel are divided. Of the 120 seats in the Knesset, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his allies won either 62 or 61 or 60. Bibi’s party dropped from 42 seats to 31. A new party led by Yair Lapid, who expressed need to reform the economy and worried about growing Israel isolation from the rest of the world, emerged with 19 seats while the Labor party came out with 15. Arab parties recieved 12.

In other words, it is clear that about half of  the Israel nation has concerns with the current economic and  political direction of their nation. Since Bibi assumed office, Israel has lost friendship with Turkey, with Egypt, and with just about every European nation that once was close to Jewish people.

Time for a change?
