He has been indicted for corruption, a first for a sitting Israeli PM. This will be interesting o watch.

    Yep. Just saw this.

    The thing is that it doesn't preclude him from serving as PM. Be interesting to see how he and his Likud supporters respond.

    B&W has demanded that Netanyahu not serve in a unity government. A demand that Likud has so far resisted.

    He said this is "a witch hunt". Hmmmm, where have I heard that before?

    Gantz just broke up Blue & White. Took his faction of the party and joined with Likud for a Unity government.

    Netanyahu remains PM. Gantz will be Parliamentary Speaker.

    That does not mean he is not a crook.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    So is Benny Gantz no longer an anti-Semite now that he joined with Likud? ;)

    In all seriousness this is a fascinating story. Thought they were headed for yet another election.
