‘They are S-C-A-R-E-D’. So said Binyamin Netanyahu in a famous 1999 election campaign speech, referring to the media. Now he is the one who is scared. The political mastermind who has been Prime Minister for the past eleven years stands to lose his crown.

Under the rotation agreement, Bibi is to step down after two years and be replaced by Blue and White leader, Benny Gantz.
