BREAKING: Netanyahu Wins; Will Be Israeli Prime Minister Again

( – BREAKING NOW: In one of the most stunning and historical returns to power after being ousted in disgrace, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will soon regain his title and lead the Israeli government even as he continues to battle charges of corruption.

Just moments ago, current Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid conceded defeat to Netanyahu.

As The Hill is reporting in “Netanyahu will return to power in Israel, form far-right government“:

“Long-serving Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu is returning to the post of prime minister for the third time, as he is positioned to form a far-right governing coalition after his conservative bloc won a majority in this week’s national elections, according to near-final vote tallies.

“Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid’s office said Thursday he has conceded defeat to Netanyahu, who Lapid congratulated in a statement.” [emphasis added]

Still, Netanyahu’s troubles are far from over.

“Netanyahu’s return to power is mired in controversy, occurring while he is still standing trial in three corruption cases in which he faces up to 10 years in prison. His victory also required him to build on an alliance with far-right parties criticized for their treatment of Israel’s Arab minority population, and further inflaming tensions with the Palestinians.” [emphasis added]
