After several different elections, Israel has finally settled on a government, but the news means that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be leaving office next year – and his successor will be former IDF chief of staff Benny Gantz.
The Knesset voted on Sunday by a 73-46.vote to set up a coalition government of Netanyahu and Gantz, who leads the Blue and White movement. Under this new coalition, Netanyahu will hand over the PM post to Gantz by November 17, 2021, meaning the staunch Trump ally’s days in power are numbered.
“I will abide by the agreement exactly as it is written,” Netanyahu informed reporters at the Knesset.
Netanyahu does not anticipate for there to be any problems between he and Gantz, whose official position is now Vice Prime Minister. Gantz served as commander for Operation Protective Edge, a military operation against Hamas on the Gaza Strip, working intimately Netanyahu on a mission they both considered to be a success.
“We decided to form a unity government and avoid a fourth election that would have caused divisiveness and would have wasted NIS 2 billion,” Netanyahu said. “The public wanted a unity government and will receive one.”
Netanyahu maintains that the new coalition government is committed to further annexation of the West Bank.
“The time has come to apply sovereignty to Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria,” he said. “This won’t distance peace. It will bring it closer. These settlements will be part of Israel in any scenario.”
Netanyahu previously defeated Gantz in a fiercely contested election earlier this year:
Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party has won the third of its election victories in recent memory, eeking out a come-from-behind victory over Benny Gantz’s Blue and White Party.
Israel has a parliamentary system that allows multiple successive elections at the whim of its unicameral legislature, the Knesset. The victory of Netanyahu’s Party is its third in less than a year.
In a victory speech, Netanyahu touted his nation’s strong relationship with foreign leaders, such as Donald Trump. He also discussed an improvement in relations Israel has had with surrounding Islamic countries, a development brought about by regional opposition to Shia Iran.
The succession of elections in Israel had been enabled by ongoing legal proceedings against Netanyahu on corruption allegations. The constant atmosphere of political campaigning in the Middle Eastern country has proved enough to alienate some of the nation’s citizens from its unconventional and unstable parliamentary system.
It had been thought the third election in less than a year would finally result in Netanyahu’s retirement, with the longtime Prime Minister having served in office since 2009. Polling had showed Likud trailing Blue and White- a center-left party- almost throughout the entirety of the campaign season, only overtaking Benny Gantz’s party days before the election.
Netanyahu’s imminent departure as Prime Minister may not be good news for President Donald Trump, who has considered him one of his biggest allies on the world stage since his election.
Canadian Health ‘Experts’ Suggest Up to Two Weeks of Mental Torture and Solitary Confinement for Kids Diagnosed with COVID-19
Psychotic levels of tyranny.
Canadian medical “experts” with Peel Health are aggressively backtracking after suggesting for parents to inflict solitary confinement upon children for up to two weeks if they are diagnosed with COVID-19.
The guidelines which have sparked widespread anger have since been removed from the Peel Health page, and state health officials are being forced to backtrack their latest COVID-19 overreach to violate the rights of children.
The initial flier that was given to children in schools can be seen here:
There are some actual medical experts with ethics, decency and common sense who are speaking out against these ghastly policies to inflict mental torture upon children.
“This does not seem practically possible and is highly likely to cause harm to children who would already be experiencing considerable distress with having to remain at home,” Dr. Tess Clifford, who works as director for the Psychology Clinic at Queen’s University, said to the Toronto Sun.
“I don’t understand how any healthcare professional has moved so far away from the fundamentals of public health and of doing no harm that they would think that basically incarcerating a child in a room for 14 days is in any way justified,” said Dr. Martha Fulford, who works as an infectious diseases physician with Hamilton Health Sciences.
“This is shocking, especially when you consider this is being proposed for children who are not in any way sick,” she added.
Brampton, Ont. Mayor Patrick Brown wrote in a tweet on Sunday that the guidelines would be revised after the outcry of anger.
“Public Health must ensure the best interests of children & families are at the centre of recommendations,” Brown wrote. “They must be based on science with evidence for all to see. I am relieved to hear from Dr [Lawrence] Loh that this mistake is being fixed & this flyer is being removed from circulation.”

While Brown is downplaying the guidelines as a mere mistake, parents who have been deceived about the COVID-19 scamdemic for over a year now are no longer buying the spin. They now understand that mealy-mouthed bureaucratic weasels are deliberately punishing the people for the purposes of leftist social control.
Shouldn’t have gone out to begin with! Only being fixed due to the outrage!

This is already happening. They didn't admit a mistake , they just got caught. pic.twitter.com/GTKOzmLp7t

This is absolutely egregious incompetence.
Isolating children? For 2 weeks?
Why do we always tolerate this utter idiocy from government?
Everyone in that decision path needs to be fired.

Mayor Brown, it's appalling that the media had to call them out for 3 consecutive days on this prior to a change being made. This should not have happened and I hope you're looking into it. If media hadn't raised it – it would have stayed in. Unacceptable

This entire Covid situation needs to be "fixed"…the sooner the better. Eventually one law or another will catch up with all the perpetrators and their supporters.

The stakes are too high for mistakes. Where else have they made mistakes? You know how a doctor covers their mistakes? 6ft of dirt.

Even after a year of nonstop fear porn from the mass media and every China-backed corporation going along with the lies, the masses still desire to be free and are rejecting COVID-19 tyranny. This is not good news for the globalists whose cruel policies are becoming violently unpopular among the common people.
