An Israeli Unity Government has been confirmed

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: What's the latest Winkie from the Israeli Supreme Court on Netanyahu being allowed to form a government?

WM: Well the Supreme Court finally I think was stining. They had no alternative because the law is very clear on the issue that Mr. Netanyahu despite a criminal charge being placed before the court and then having to go to trial. The law says he can be the Prime Minister. There's no way that the Supreme Court could have turned that around. It has nothing to do with what the law says. So this week the past is cleared for Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Gantz to draw up their coalition agreements and to move ahead. And as happened on the Thursday 72 signatures were handed into the President of Israel Mr. Reuven Rivlin recommending that Mr. Netanyahu be given 14 days to set up a government which I think will probably be done actually by next week.

JD: You said 72 members of the Knesset signed onto that?

WM: Absolutely, 72. And of course to remind our listeners you only need 61 to have a majority.

JD: So that makes a very good coalition government coming together. Well any other road blocks in the way?

WM: Well the next step actually means that the Knesset will reconvene on Monday and Tuesday. The full coalition agreement will be place on the desks of every single of the 120 members of the Knesset. There will be a debate. Mr. Netanyahu and probably Mr. Gantz will present their government in terms of general policy statements. There will be a bit of a debate and within a day eventually motion to confirm the government. I think it's the 23 government maybe already, will be confirmed and then we can get on with the business at hand which means governing in a corona cycle, in an employment cycle, all that is giving us the ups and downs here in Israel.

JD: Winkie Medad with the details on how the Israeli unity government has been confirmed.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Confirmation of a unity government in Israel is good news to the Israelis after 17 months and 3 national elections without a government. This gives stability to the state of Israel and it warns Israel's enemies we are once again open for business to protect the Jewish nation surrounded by enemies that want to destroy this Jewish state. Israel is a powerful military operation in a very rough neighborhood. However, the bottom line is that God will protect His chosen people and nation. That scenario is found in Ezekiel 38:18 - 39:6. God will protect His people.
