Binyamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister and Magician (AUDIO INTERVIEW)

Hebrew University political scientist Yonatan Freeman discusses Israel’s longtime leader who, despite numerous obstacles, keeps on winning

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is not called a political magician for nothing. He beat, according to exit polls, his centrist rival, Benny Gantz, after trailing him in voter surveys.

Netanyahu is nowhere near the finish line, though. The official results could favor Gantz. Even if they don’t, Netanyahu still has to form a coalition. What’s more, he goes on trial in two weeks for alleged corruption.

Yet he pulled that rabbit out of his hat. To learn how, The Media Line spoke with Dr. Yonatan Freeman, a political scientist from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
