ICYMI, Netanyahu is out

After 12 years (first from 1996 to 1999, then continuously from 2009 to 2021) Benjamin Netanyahu is now the former Prime Minister of Israel, replaced by right-wing nationalist Naftali Bennett. The announcement, which hit the United States press on Sunday, June 13th, was received by Israeli activists, who protested Netanyahu’s grip on power throughout the pandemic, with celebrations in the streets. Here’s a photo round up, as well as some poignant tweets about what the country is leaving behind, and what might be ahead.
