I’d say Bibi will be trying to ride two bicycles simultaneously.

“The Israeli vote split exactly even between right-leaning and left-leaning blocs with both sets capturing 60 seats in the Knesset.”

Why did they call “Yesh Atid” (very much centrist) “left leaning” party? Why did they call Hadash (the party of the hard-core communists and anarchists) “left-leaning” party? Could anyone answer me?

PhillipNagle says:

The news media is trying to make the left seem stronger than they are. Though they are correct in calling a fascist party “left leaning”. Facism is a form of socialism (Nazis were National Socialists).
