Most Americans have no idea how the Israeli elections work. Their system is very different from ours, which is why it’s difficult for many to understand the complexities that determine how their government is assembled.
Based on projections and exit polls, it appears the right-wing bloc of parties were able to secure more than 61 seats, the threshold necessary to give them control of the government, including making Likud’s Benjamin Netanyahu Prime Minister again. Though both Netanyahu and the center-left bloc’s Benny Gantz of the Blue and White Party celebrated victory, the end result will almost certainly be a win for the current Prime Minister.

This is an important development for Americans and Israelis alike. The left in Israel would continue to push for policies that would put them at risk for the sake of a false peace. If that happens, the United States will be pushed into a choice we don’t want to make – helping our allies in Israel at the peril of our military men and women or back away from them, leaving them defenseless. It’s important for America’s own security that our only true ally in the Middle East is strong and safe.
Netanyahu represents the conservative side of Israeli politics. His right wing block, which will be comprised of his Likud party as well well as 4-6 others, will form the government once it’s made official by President Reuven Rivlin. He will speak to leaders from all of the relevant parties to see who they support for Prime Minister, then will call on the person who is most likely to get 61 seats in the Knesset in his coalition to form the government.
Now is not the time to go into a tutorial of how Israel’s parliamentary government works. The important thing is barring some craziness in the final five percent of votes to be counted, Netanyahu will end up being Prime Minister for another term, during which he will become the longest-serving Prime Minister in Israeli history.
“It was an ugly election, this one, uglier than most because it was so non-ideological: so little about issues, and so much about personalities.” – Herb Keinon
Benjamin Netanyahu has been a great friend to America just as President Trump has been a great friend to Israel. This relationship can continue now, making the strongest alliance we have in the Middle East even stronger.
