Rivals of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are joining forces to try and oust him from power. If Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid are able to close a deal, it could end Netanyahu’s record-setting tenure as prime minister. George Birnbaum, Bennett’s chief strategist and pollster and a former chief of staff for Netanyahu, joined CBSN’s Tanya Rivero to discuss, in the video published on June 2, 2021, “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faces uncertain future“, below:
A coalition of 61 Israeli parliamentary lawmakers have reached a deal that could oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after 12 years in power, but members of the Knesset still need to vote to approve the new government.

Israeli Opposition leaders announced they have reached a deal to form a new governing coalition, paving the way for the ouster of Benjamin Netanyahu’s 12-year rule, in the video published on June 2, 2021, “Benjamin Netanyahu’s opponent reach deal to oust Israeli Prime Minister | ABC News“, below:
An unlikely coalition of disparate Israeli opposition parties struck a deal on Wednesday night to form a government. The agreement could potentially resolve an extended period of political deadlock and force beleaguered Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from the political stage after 12 years in office. Yair Lapid, a centrist, and Naftali Bennett, an ultranationalist, announced the deal after they succeeded in cobbling together a coalition government with a number of parties from across the political spectrum. Lapid managed to pull together signatures from seven parties signaling their willingness to form a coalition shortly before his mandate to form a new government expired at midnight. Lapid has officially informed President Rivlin that he has the backing of the majority of the Knesset to form a cabinet — over two months after the March 23 election. The new government could face a vote of confidence in Israel’s Knesset parliament sometime before next Wednesday unless Lapid asks for time to negotiate any disagreements before parties sign on to a binding coalition. Such a move would delay the vote by another week and give parties time to iron out any disagreements about the policies and appointments of the new government. It is expected that Netanyahu, the country’s longest-serving prime minister, will attempt to bring lawmakers from the coalition over to his side. Unless the newly formed coalition collapses before being sworn in, Netanyahu’s 12-year stint in the top job will come to an end, in the video published on June 3, 2021, “Israeli opposition parties strike deal to form new government | DW News“, below:
If it Is all over for Bibi then why is Israel still holding its breath? After an eleventh hour deal on a coalition to bring the curtain down on the Netanyahu years, drama now shifting to parliament where the speaker – a Likud loyalist – refuses to move up the date for a vote of confidence. We ask about the push to first remove Yariv Levin then get the 61 votes needed to oust the country’s longest-serving prime minister, in the video published on June 3, 2021, “Bye bye Bibi?

Netanyahu insists Israel is prepared to prevent Iran from developing an atomic programme, even if the U.S. and other nations succeed in reinstating the 2015 Iran nuclear accord that he fiercely opposes. Will this be seen as a genuine stance or more of a parting shot as Netanyahu faces losing power?
