Everything old is new again..

Or so it seems this is the idea in Israeli politics this year.

Finally, there is a 'winner' to the elections that took place on February 10th.

It was announced in the last couple of days that Benjamin Netanyahu has been asked by the President to form a coalition government and is therefore Prime Minister-designate (somewhat same idea as president-elect in the USA) of Israel.

Netanyahu was also PM from 1996-1999.

Yes, I read about Netanyahu during the U.S. Clinton administration. That's quite funny as in the U.S. it's rare to see someone who has actually served as President return later (after a break) to run again.
