These are a large group of people who only listen to their various leaders / rabbi's they do not , will not conform to the standards You and I accept or understand , they have NO internet, read only proscribed news papers , their phones are strictly only for calls no internet, they have no radios or tv's and live their lives in prayer, learning and ghettoes .
They are threatened by the secular society and its norms and they retreat from anything that they feel threatens their way of life , the Police are referred to as Nazis and you cannot enter their areas unless you are modestly dressed .
They are by choice a people apart
Netanayu was unable to form a coalition Government and the mantle is now passed to the next largest winner in the recent election.
The last few years have seen Netanayu run the country to suit himself and do all he can to avoid the upcoming legal problems that beset him , his supporters have tried to change laws , have challenged the courts and have attempted to create a state specially formatted to protect BB it has failed (Thank Gd)
Whether we can see the next contender create a government only time will tell but whilst there is life there is hope .
He's out of power? Completely?
If the Party now tasked to form a Government ( a coalition) cant then there has to be another General Election of course it is more than possible that Netanayu could win the next election it is also possible his Party - Likud could decide that enough is enough with him wriggling away trying to find cover from his court program (he is charged with 3 offences)
So he is still acting PM unless the opposition can form , coerce parties to join them
He's like a cockroach who just won't die, no matter how sturdy your shoe is!
Despite everything he is or is not he is still very popular and whilst I do not like his tactics over the last 3 - 4 years I have to say he will be remembered for putting this very tiny (very) state on the Map .
For all the wrong reasons!
The Palestinian Authority were to have an election (the 1st in about 15 years) the entire leadership of the PA has been in charge with a long expired mandate they have in reality no support from the people .
Israel has refused to allow the PA to canvas in Jerusalem (it is complex it is political and IMO we should have allowed it) because there is now to be NO ELECTION with the PA blaming Israel the result has been that the Ramadan crowds on the Mosque area have clashed with the police , these clashes are very predictable and cyclic .
Any election that may yet transpire will see the entire leadership sent home and that is possibly the root of all this trouble
