Despite U.S. President Barack Obama’s Marxist minion manipulations on the ground, Israel parties Likud and Bayit Yehudi “struck up a deal Wednesday” according to the Jerusalem Post. This completes the formation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition government following marathon negotiations just an hour and a half before the legal deadline.
In a statement released Thursday morning, Bayit Yehudi confirmed saying, “Bayit Yehudi received the education and diaspora affairs portfolios for its leader Naftali Bennett, justice minister for MK Ayelet Shaked, agriculture minister for MK Uri Ariel, and the position of deputy defense minister,” according to the Post.
Likud MK Ze’ev Elkin, who signed the agreement on behalf of his party, congratulated the completion of the coalition formation led by Netanyahu and wished success to its members.
Opposition and Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog reacted to the news on Thursday, reiterating that his party went to the opposition as promised from the beginning.
Swearing in is planned before next Wednesday, “at which point Netanyahu will tell the Likud MKs who will be a minister and who will not, and portfolios will be decided upon,” according to the Post.
