Benjamin Netanyahu has been ousted after 12 years as prime minister of the israeli occupation, and replaced by Naftali Bennett, who proudly claims that he is even more right-wing than his predecessor.
A former commando, and a tech-millionaire, the head of the ultra-nationalist New Right party, has forged a coalition government with 8 other parties, united only by their hatred for Netanyahu who failed to form a coalition government after four inconclusive elections in 2 years.
In a deal with centrist politician Yair Lapid, Bennett will hold the premiership for two years, to be followed by Lapid who will take over then as alternating prime minister. Bennett has always openly opposed a Palestinian state, supports the expansion of illegal israeli settlements, in violation of international law, and once proudly said that quote 'I've Killed Lots Of Arabs In My Life And There's No Problem With That.
After being sworn in on June 13th 2021, among the first actions he took as Prime Minister: he approved a right-wing march by ultra nationalist settlers through the holy city of Jerusalem, who were seen openly chanting death to Arabs, and calling for more ethnic cleansing and a second Nakba. Bennett then bombed Gaza twice in the same week, violating the May 21st ceasefire with Hamas and also agreed to give Palestinians 1 million vaccines to fight COVID- with one caveat: theyre about to expire.
