In order to get a solid government in place, Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu needs to bribe support from various political parties! And the bribes he’s forced to offer is “Ministries”. Leaders of his potential partners, and members of his own Likud party are demanding that he appoint them to be a “Minister” in the new gov’t. So the list of government ministries is blowing up out of proportion. And each “Minister” gets a car and driver and an office and a budget , and, and… But hey, it’s the Israeli system!
BTW, the modern Hebrew word for a government Minister is the old Hebrew word for a Prince.
With less than 2 hours to spare, Netanyahu secures a coalition PM informs president he’s clinched a 61-seat government after 11th-hour talks with Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett, expresses hope for an expanded coalition by next week.
Israel now has a new government with a narrow majority. We need to pray for Prime Minister Netanyahu to listen to wisdom from above to lead Israel forward in blessing and security. Here is a very accurate Biblical standard for our prayers.
Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his worksare done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. James 3:13-18
