Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Takes Office in Israel

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu returns as prime minister after his party formed a coalition with two strong religious allies; ultranationalist and ultra-Orthodox.

This has stirred a rouse that will inflame conflict with Palestine. Not only that it will inflame conflict, but it will damage the judiciary and restrict minority rights.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promises

Benjamin Netanyahu promises to safeguard civil rights and pursue peace. When he was addressing a special session of the Knesset parliament which was in Jerusalem, he said, his administration will restore governance, personal security and peace to Israeli citizens.

The opposition parties have continued to lament about the end of the state and democracy. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that losing elections is not the end of democracy, instead, it stands as the essence of democracy.

Opponents said; “he is weak”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was chanted weak by his opponents. They posit that the prime minister has been forced to sign deals with his party, because, other parties rejected to rule the country with him due to breach of trust, fraud and Bribery. However, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denied any wrongdoings.

Hundreds of protesters were seen gathered outside waving the Israeli flag; including rainbow flags which carry the bearing star of David. Nonetheless, signs reading shame, danger and racism were seen.

Principles published

The first guiding principle of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was published on Wednesday. It was stated that; “the Jewish people have an exclusive and unquestionable right to all areas of the land of Israel”. This won’t exclude the occupied West Bank, because, there was a promise to develop settlements there.

In 1967, about six hundred thousand Jews are in 140 settlements. This was built since Israel’s occupation of East Jerusalem and the West bank. However, under international law, this settlement is considered illegal, although the Israeli still argues about this.

Without the government’s authorization, 100s of outposts were built across the West Bank. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agreed to legalise the outposts after he signed a coalition deal last week. The prime minister has also said he would annex the West Bank while he weighs Israeli’s international and national interest
