JERUSALEM (VINnews) — As reported by VINnews, all of the exit polls initially released after election day in Israel had shown the right-wing parties have 60 seats. This was a huge win for Netanyahu, since it was entirely plausible that he would have the necessary majority to form a government and prevent a fourth election after the votes of the soldiers were factored in.

That’s what you get for double crossing Ben Gevir twice. His two seats could of formed a government. He wanted to ban the women of the wall but nathanyahu refused. Let’s get to election number four.
