I've Been Thinking:
It looks like elections are on the horizon in Israel. Again.
Both Benny Gantz, the head of the Blue & White party, and Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu of Likud, made announcements about elections on the same day. And their announcements were made only 15 minutes apart from each other.
Gantz wants elections. Bibi is saying hold on. They each have a personal agenda.
Elections are personal.
In the end, in the event of another election in Israel, both Gantz and Netanyahu will be big losers.
Gantz will never be able to bring together the broad base group that challenged Bibi in earlier elections. And Bibi is feeling a real threat from his right flank.
Gantz and Bibi aside, if there is a 4th election in Israel, the biggest losers will be the citizens of Israel.
Never a dull moment in Israel.
