Board of Deputies reacts to Israeli election results
Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has reacted to the results of yesterday’s Israeli elections.
She said: “Benjamin Netanyahu has registered a significant achievement in winning a record fifth election as Prime Minister in this hotly contested election. After a polarising campaign, with some deeply alarming rhetoric, politicians from all sides need to work hard to build trust with every section of Israeli society and not take actions and decisions which deepen divides. We hope that the new Government will be successful in pursuing the peace, security, prosperity and equality that all Israeli citizens need and deserve.”
