Netanyahu makes history as Israel’s longest-serving leader
As Benjamin Netanyahu becomes Israel’s longest-serving prime minister, he is solidifying his place as the country’s greatest political survivor and the most dominant force in Israeli politics in his generation.


He has persevered through scandals, crises and conflicts, winning election after election even as the country grows more bitterly polarized.
His supporters credit him with keeping Israel safe and prosperous, maintaining its Jewish character and boosting its standing internationally.


His opponents, with equally visceral emotion, claim he has dashed hopes for peace with the Palestinians, torn society apart with vicious attacks on minority Arabs and left-wing opponents, and infused politics with a culture of corruption.
