Bibi Lauds 'Incredible Victory'

Supporters of Benjamin Netanyahu cheered the news that he'd won Israel's election yesterday, his path to a governmental coalition clear. The Times of Israel reports on Netanyahu's response — that he would form a right-wing government in the coming days, and continue to "be PM of all of Israel":

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared himself victorious in the 2019 general election Tuesday night, as updated exit polls and early results showed him with a clear path to forming a new government.

“I am very moved on this night,” he told exuberant supporters. “This is a night of an incredible, incredible victory...”

Netanyahu said the numbers indicated a “fantastic achievement, an enormous achievement, which is almost unfathomable.”

He applauded his supporters for securing his win in the face of a “biased media.”

He called the Likud outcome “almost unprecedented,” saying, “When did we receive so many seats? I don’t even remember...”

Netanyahu said Israel, under his leadership, was strong, prosperous and “a good place to live...”

“It will be a right-wing government. But I intend to be the prime minister of all of Israel, right and left, Jews and non-Jews alike...”
