Leading Israeli daily Haaretz has a new headline: “What does the bold leaders mean?”.
The article says that Israel is facing “unprecedented challenges”.
Haaretz says that “the new leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the first in decades to not be a member of the right-wing Likud party.
He has announced his decision to seek a third term in office, which would make him the youngest prime minister in Israeli history.
Netanyahu is also expected to take the initiative to take on the Muslim Brotherhood in his first term, a move that could create a rift with the ultra-conservative party.
The article said Netanyahu will have a difficult task in implementing the new policy.”
The leader of the conservative Habayit Hayehudi party, Avigdor Lieberman, was also one of the first members of Netanyahu’s coalition to endorse the change.”
He has been accused of turning his back on the Arab world and of not doing enough to address the root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The leader of the conservative Habayit Hayehudi party, Avigdor Lieberman, was also one of the first members of Netanyahu’s coalition to endorse the change.
The Haaretz article says: “Netanyahu’s first and only initiative was to resign as prime minister last year, after a wave of protests, after which he promised to address many of the concerns of the public.
But he has not fulfilled his promise and has faced the criticism of his right- wing coalition colleagues for not fulfilling his promises to the people.
The coalition agreement had already called for a new prime minister to be selected in the coming days, but Netanyahu has not been willing to compromise on his pledge.
The prime minister has also not fulfilled promises to bring Israel closer to the international community, as he promised.
It is not clear if the new leadership will fulfill those promises.
“Netanyahu said in January that he would not resign and that he was committed to serving the country and serving the people of Israel for decades to come.
