WND’s Mideast reporter Aaron Klein is on the scene in Tel Aviv, where he will file live audio updates as Israel’s election drama unfolds.
UPDATE 2: The first exit polls are in, showing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud in the lead, with 28 seats and the left wing Zionist Union in close second with 27 seats in the 120 seat Knesset. Live from Tel Aviv, Klein reports on what the initial election results mean and the possibilities for the most stable governing coalition.
UPDATE 1: Klein makes sense of the complicated Israeli electoral process and highlights what to pay attention to during Tuesday’s election.
Klein explains how the Israeli Arabs or a particular economic party may be the deciding factor in the election and how Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu can potentially retain his office even if his party does not come in first place.
UPDATE 3: Israelis woke up Wednesday to the surprising news that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu scored a decisive victory, with his Likud Party winning 30 Knesset seats, by far the largest parliamentary plurality as compared to the left-wing Zionist Union’s final count of 24 seats. Klein explains what Netanyahu’s victory means for Israel, the Obama administration and the future of the Middle East.
