Will Israel's Netanyahu lead or be led by Ben-Gvir, coalition partners?
NATIONAL AFFAIRS: The question is whether Netanyahu will be able to keep his coalition partners – the Religious Zionist Party, Shas and UTJ – in order.
Published: NOVEMBER 4, 2022

The fifth time’s a charm. Forty-four months and five elections after it all began, Israel’s political purgatory ended Tuesday when the nation – en masse – went to the polls and finally rendered a clear decision: it wants Benjamin Netanyahu back, and this time as the head of the most right-wing and religious coalition this country has ever seen.

Some will take issue with that statement about a “clear decision,” saying that the pro-Netanyahu bloc – the Likud, Shas, United Torah Judaism and the Religious Zionist Party – received only a few thousand more votes than the number received by the anti-Netanyahu bloc, made up of all the parties of the last government plus the Arab Balad and Hadash-Ta’al parties. A few thousand votes (13,000 as of Thursday morning), they will argue, do not make a clear mandate, are far short of a resounding victory, and are less than the clear mandate that the Netanyahu bloc is claiming.

Well the warning Jesus gave about praying that their flight not be on the Sabbath speaking of the Abomination of Desolation and the flight of the Jews from the Antichrist, suggests that Sabbath laws will be in full force.

Strict enough that vehicles and buses and public transport of all types will be grounded on the Sabbath making escape difficult.

For those laws to be so strictly enforced as to get in the way of people driving or catching a train or bus out of Jerusalem means there has to have been a return to the Sanhedrin, and the strict legal code of Judaism.
