Naftali Bennett had scarcely savored his 15 minutes of fame at a summit meeting in Sharm al-Sheikh with United Arab Emirates Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan and Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi. The prime minister’s plane landed at Ben-Gurion Airport on Tuesday at 3:15 P.M. Less than an hour later, an Israeli Bedouin terrorist launched a murder spree in Be’er Sheva that ended with four Israeli bodies, along with his own death at the hands of two brave citizens. News studios and websites launched into live-streaming mode. Bennett’s meeting, certainly worthy of being called “historic,” was barely mentioned.
