NETANYAHU: A SHREWD LEADER WHO RESHAPED ISRAEL
JERUSALEM -- He had been called "the King of Israel" and "the great survivor": for a generation, Benjamin Netanyahu, or "Bibi," as he is popularly known, dominated Israeli politics.
Known for his combative style, the country's longest-serving leader played a key role in its drift to a more right-wing, nationalist outlook.
On the international scene, he has been the face of Israel, speaking in fluent US accented English and ensuring his small country punches above its weight.
NETANYAHU OUT AS NEW ISRAELI GOVERNMENT APPROVED

Right-wing nationalist Naftali Bennett has been sworn in as prime minister, leading a "government of change". He will lead an unprecedented coalition of parties which was approved with a razor-thin majority of 60-59.

THE BEST POSSIBLE YOU

The Torah reading focuses on the dispute between Moses and Korach. Both came from the same tribe of Levi, but dissension bitterly divided them. The Torah clearly sides with Moses and has a poor opinion of Korach and his henchmen. You would think that what divided them was ideology but that did not seem to be the problem at all.
