Fall of Netanyahu: Quo Vadis Israeli Policy? (John Eipper, USA, 06/15/21 3:19 am)

It's only Tuesday, and the week is already full of Big Deals in geopolitics.

Yesterday's NATO meeting saw Biden's "America's back" reaffirmation of the alliance and the first encounter between Biden and Erdogan.  Tomorrow (June 16th) will be the much-anticipated Biden-Putin summit in Geneva.

And the week kicked off with the end of the Netanyahu era.  After 12 years in power, his coalition collapsed.  The new PM, Naftali Bennett, represents the New Right (a party formed only in 2018).  He entered into a "rotation agreement" whereby power will pass to Yair Lapid of the centrist Yesh Atid in 2023.

What do we know about Bennett other than his youth (born 1972) and American background (his parents are from San Francisco)?  His New Right party splintered off from Netanyahu's Likud--presumably to get out from under Bibi's shadow?

Much to discuss here, but I am a rank amateur when it comes to Israeli politics.  I hope other WAISers will fill in the gaps and offer predictions.  For starters, will Netanyahu finally have to face the music for his alleged corruption?
