Posted on 10/21/2019 10:29:23 AM PDT by gandalftb
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu returned the mandate to form a government to President Reuven Rivlin minutes after the end of the Simhat Torah holiday Monday night.
President Reuven Rivlin received the message from Netanyahu. He will hold consultations with faction representatives and by law has three days to give the mandate to another candidate.

Maybe his best present is to get rid of the burden placed on his shoulders.
Listen to the people and give them what they want. I guess...
Methinks Bibi’s betting no one else can form a government either .... so it’s found three for elections.
This may be ultimately a stronger position for Netanyahu to take for himself. He could even end up staying on as prime minister of he could negotiate a rotating premiership (which would make sense in a unity government centered around two large vote-getting parties) Now he’s the one to be courted to form a government and he doesn’t have to surrender policy goals to the ultraorthadox parties. It’s now likely either unity government or new elections.
And who did they get? SAUL. He was the TALLEST man in Israel.
He was incompetent, jealous, headstrong and a murderer.
He was replaced by David, the exact opposite of all those traits..........
Are the Blue and White the party of wine drinking, Kumbya singing, party of Globalization who considers placating their enemies?
for the record, David did commit adultery and murder.
He was incompetent,jealous, headstrong.’’U talkin bout Mitt ?
Add what is happening in Syria - Russia, Assad & Iran all weighing next moves there, it is trying times ahead for Israel.
I expect the next government to be a weak government, and for it to be tested, and for it to be voted out of office sooner rather than later (too much infighting trying to get internal agreement by comprimses from different factions). Things will not go well for it. Afterward, Netanyahu might have a chance again.
Israel is becoming ungovernable. Sooner or later the enemies surrounding her are going to interpret the government deadlock as weakness and attack.
But without Saul would they ever have gotten David?
Yes, he did, but way into his age.
Solomon was 13 when he took the throne, so the sins committed happened 14 years prior to David’s death................
Saul was an example of a bad king. I believe that was his purpose...............
Netanyahu says he made every possible effort to bring Blue and White leader Benny Gantz to the negotiation table.
Benny is not being cooperative.
But the most popular song in Syria is now Benny and the IDF Fighter Jets.
So much for parliamentary rule that some idiots in the media want for the US.
If you actually look, the Israel enemies have been reduced to Iran
The Palistenians are Iranian surrogates and incapable of significant action on their own
It is not 1973 or 1967
Which would make him the perfect Democrat.
Yeah but besides that? :)
David was also headstrong, and jealous. He also, as a boy, fit in Saul’s armor; Saul being head and shoulders above Israel (i.e. exceptionally tall).
