(FreedomBeacon.com)- Well, it’s the end of an era. Benjamin Netanyahu was officially ousted as the Prime Minister of Israel, meaning the country has a new leader for the first time since 2009.
It comes after a power-sharing government headed by Naftali Bennett survived a confidence vote in the nation’s parliament on Sunday, with Bennett sworn in as the new president shortly after.
Netanyahu is a staple in Israeli politics, and was the longest-serving prime minister in the country. He doesn’t appear to be going anywhere in terms of politics, however, and will now become the leader of the opposition.
Bennett, who is a former protégé of Netanyahu, is all set to lead the most diverse government in Israeli history, but not in the way you think. The new coalition government is likely to be much less stable than Netanyahu’s government and contains a number of parties that have very little in common.
The coalition, incredibly, contains parties from both the “far right” and the “far left,” including a political party that specifically represents “Palestinian” citizens of Israel.
Analysts have said that the new government is likely to focus on economic and social issues, however, rather than focusing on diplomatic matters like the ongoing conflict between Israel and the terrorist organization that rules Palestine, Hamas.
Netanyahu has fought hard to stop this from happening, but ultimately couldn’t present a bigger majority in the parliament than the new hodgepodge coalition. He pressured conservatives to abandon Bennett and his plans ahead of the vote, but ultimately, he lost.
The former Israeli Prime Minister, who slammed the new U.S. president and his anti-Israel policies, has promised to bring down the new coalition government however he can. He met the new Prime Minister on Monday, but it’s unclear what they discussed.
Netanyahu has slammed the move as the “fraud of the century.”
It looks like bother former President Donald Trump and Netanyahu have big fights on their hands.
