Bibi Or Benny?

I have not been following the election in Israel other than the fact that I knew it was going to happen yesterday.  The outcome is very close between Prime Minister Benjamin (“Bibi”) Netanyahu and his major rival, Benny Gantz.  As of this morning (early Wednesday), Bibi’s party had a very slight lead but with strong supporters in the other parties, enough to form a coalition.

As a friend noted last night, in a country of 8 million people with 39 political parties, it’s meshugge.
