The recent Israeli elections are at a stalemate, but God is still in charge

Jimmy DeYoung

Listen to Today’s Program Play

JD: The Israeli body politic went to the polls to vote. It was a record turn out but it’s come to a stalemate once again. Why is it a stalemate much like a repeat of the elections that took place back in April of this year?

WM: At the present moment Jimmy neither of those two leading parties is able to gather together the necessary 61.

JD: So what then will the procedure be Winkie? How will they come about doing that?

WM: Well the President of the state will be Rivlin on Sunday will begin what is called consultations. He receives each faction that got into the Knesset and they get about 30 to 40 minutes to tell the President their preference for the member of Knesset who should be charged with the responsibility for trying to come back to the Knesset and say speaking of the Knesset I have at least 61 members of the Knesset that will vote for me and that’s called a vote of confidence. Once that happens we have a government. If that does not happen I’m going to go back to the holy books and scriptures and find out what we can do because we’re really in a mess.

JD: Yeah, that’s the best place to go I’ll guarantee it. Quick answer if you will Winkie. Whoever forms the government if there is a government formed will the future look ok for the Israeli state of Israel in this next government?

WM: Well Jimmy now you’re asking me a question that I might have to mix in a little bit of my political beliefs here. We’re at a critical stage. Of course you’ve probably heard that in the past. We’ve got Iran that has just recently bombed Saudi Arabia or other oil fields. We’re not talking about Hezbollah activities on Israelis northern border. This is an out right act of war against a sovereign country. We have the American alliance that we have to take care of.
