For the 18th straight week, hundreds of thousands of Israelis gathered on the streets of Tel Aviv on Saturday to protest not only the current government’s judicial reform, but the man responsible for it: Benjamin Netanyahu.
Over the past decade Netanyahu himself has become the main political and electoral issue in the nation.
Many of his supporter see him as “King Bibi,” while detractors label him a villainous dictator.
Recent polls show Netanyahu and his Likud party losing support if elections were held today, but the constellation of parties that would emerge still put him in the best position to form the next government.
Love him or hate him (and there seems to be no in-between with our prime minister), Bibi isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
