1. 2 possibilities.Bibi with Gantz or Bibi with Lieberman.

Whatever these guys have said in the past means little now.
2. Include the Joint List - They are citizens too!
Mark Jeffery Koch ,   Mount Laurel, NJ USA   (09.18.19)
If Israel was a true democracy then Blue and White would include the Joint List in their government along with other small parties. Israelis like to claim to the world "We're the only democracy in the Middle East" but whenever it comes time to form a government both the left and the right proclaim "We would never partner with Arabs." Remember, these are Arab CITIZENS and they are not against the existence of the State of Israel.

Imagine how you feel if the situation was reversed and a Christian or Muslim government said "We will never form a government that includes the Jews."
Our people have endured a millennium of persecution. I hope that Gantz shows some true vision.
3. 60% of Israeli voters demand gov't of 3 centrist parties
Paqid Yirmeyahu ,   Ra'anana   (09.18.19)
72 seats. The question becomes: how far will politicians go to subvert the democratic public will?
4. Ynet's interesting choice of words
Alexander ,   Tel Aviv   (09.18.19)
"Extremist Otzma Yehudit". Hmmm.
And the Arab anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist parties, who don't recognize Israel as a Jewish State and openly side with Israel's enemies in the Israeli parliament Knesset - aren't extremist?

If Otzma Yehudit should be labeled "extremist", then so should the Arab Joint List and the Meretz Party.

Fake News and Socialism - that's what Ynet is good at.
5. YNET hates Netanyahu & Trump double joy for YNET
ShotInTheFoot ,   Jerusalem   (09.18.19)
The Israelis who voted left shot them selves in the foot with the gun of blind hate of Judaism and they also shot them selves in the foot with President Trump and 100 million plus American Christian supporters who will see this as a personal attack
Never underestimate the stupidity of the average Israeli voter
6. Change the electoral system to areas & Left will dry up
SystemIsWrong ,   Jerusalem   (09.18.19)
