Bibi Calls for New Year of Peace

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took time away from Israel’s electoral process to wish the people of Israel a Happy New Year. Algemeiner’s Benjamin Kerstein reports that Netanyahu’s Rosh Hashanah message called for peace and unity:

In a greeting on Sunday for the Jewish new year, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on rival Benny Gantz to agree to form a unity government when they meet immediately after the Rosh Hashanah holiday.

Israel’s September 17 elections ended in a deadlock with neither Netanyahu’s Likud or Gantz’s Blue and White able to form a majority government. President Reuven Rivlin has been pushing the two parties to form a unity government. Thus far, contacts between the parties have not borne fruit.

In a video posted on Twitter, Netanyahu called for a new year of “internal peace.”

To accomplish this, he said, President Rivlin made a “wise proposal” when he said, “Neither you Prime Minister Netanyahu and you MK Gantz can form a government on your own,” so “form a mutual government, a wide unity government…”
