The biggest rule in Israeli politics is that there are no predictions. However, it is pretty clear that Bibi Netanyahu stands a good chance at returning to the Prime Minister’s Office.
True, polls show the two blocks deadlocked. However, most people sense that the street is in no mood to take a chance on someone politically unseasoned again. With the world heading towards more and more chaos, Israelis want an experienced hand at governing. This someone is most probably Bibi Netanyahu – the longest serving prime minister in Israel’s history.
With Iran drawing close to a nuclear weapon, Russia on the move, and an Arab uprising happening in slow motion, only someone on Netanyahu’s level can restore Israel’s deterrence.
Whatever the outcome in Israel’s election this fall, it is guaranteed to be a chaotic elections season.
