A coalition of Israeli opposition parties has agreed to form a government that would oust Netanyahu from power.
The Washington Post reported:
A diverse coalition of Israeli opposition parties said Sunday that they had the votes to form a unity government to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel's longest-serving leader and dominant political figure in more than a decade.
A power-sharing government will be led under their agreement, reached after weeks of negotiations led by centrist opposition leader Yair Lapid, former Netanyahu Defense Minister and ally Naftali Bennett.
Netanyahu is currently on trial for bribery and the only thing that will save him from possible jail time is the office he holds. If the deal between opposition parties is in place, Netanyahu will be ousted from power and nothing will prevent him from being convicted and possibly imprisoned.
Netanyahu's pal, the failed former president of the United States, is in a similar situation. Trump faces possible criminal charges of banking and tax fraud in Manhattan.
When Trump sees what could happen to Netanyahu, he gets a glimpse of his own potential future. It's no surprise that Netanyahu and the one-year-old president are friends. It appears to be two cut from the same fabric. A kind of fabric that they could use to swap the clothes of power for prison uniforms in the near future.
