It appears that Benjamin Netanyahu is finally on his way out as Israel’s prime minister. With just minutes to spare ahead of a midnight deadline on Wednesday, opposition leader Yair Lapid notified Israel’s president that he had formed a new government.
But if Benjamin Netayahu’s 12-year run is indeed at an end, expect key segments of the GOP will treat Bibi as though he had not lost power, much as they continue to venerate Donald Trump and look at Joe Biden’s victory as illegitimate.
Israel has emerged as another domestic wedge issue – along with mask mandates, abortion and defunding the police. In the words of Tom Friedman, “Biden may be the last pro-Israel Democratic president.” Against this backdrop, Netanyahu will likely continue to receive Republican hosannas even if he is out of a job.
