The turnout in Israel at the ballot box was high on Tuesday, but now it all comes down to the real election, consisting of one man’s vote. That would be President Reuven “Ruby” Rivlin, who decides whether to offer the chance to put together a governing coalition to Likud’s Bibi Netanyahu or Zionist Union’s Isaac Herzog.

Bibi Abandons 2-State Solution

As the election got closer and tighter Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu moved farther and farther away from his 2009 commitment to the two-state solution.

In the years since that speech at Bar Ilan University, his position has gone from "yes, but' to "hell, no" with a few stops in between.

Bibi's Scare Tactics

As polls show him falling further behind in the final days before elections for the 20th Knesset, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's strategy is one of increasing desperation.  His theme " if you can't convince em, scare em" was strikingly clear in an interview in Friday's Jerusalem Post.

Keeping Score

Prime Minister Netanyahu's trip to Washington this week was a big success for him personally as members of Congress on both sides of the aisle gave him an enthusiastic reception, and he went home with good footage for his campaign commercials. 

He didn't produce any of the new information about Iran and its nuclear ambitions he had promised, and he didn't appear to have changed any minds, but the appearance gave him a slight boost in the polls back home, though not enough to take the lead. It remains to be seen whether that is temporary or a trend.
