U.S. President Barack Obama now knows Benjamin Netanyahu is the "only game in town," Haaretz Editor-in-Chief Aluf Benn said Wednesday, after the prime minister decisively won a fourth term in office.
In an interview with Aimee Amiga immediately after the final elections results were announced, Benn explained how Netanyahu won a resounding victory against all predictions: by "being more right than the right" and winning over the voters who normally support smaller, more nationalist right-wing parties.
He also discussed whether the election results mean the Israeli public has rejected prospects for peace negotiations with the Palestinians, and what policies one can expect a purely right-wing coalition, headed by Netanyahu's Likud party, to focus on.
