New Elections September 17

The 80th Congress of the United States was called the "Do Nothing Congress," but Israel has it beat as the 21st Knesset votes to dissolve itself without even forming a government.

The new election will be held on September 17th, just two weeks before Netanyahu's first indictment hearings in court on October 2 and 3rd for corruption.  In the meantime, Jared Kushner arrived in Israel yesterday in the middle of the mess instead of in the court of the new Prime Minister's government.  Jared is saved by the turmoil, as the Trump peace plan seems to be nothing more than an economic plan for further investment in Israel, the PA and the territories, mostly with Saudi and Bahrain support.  Russia and China, two of Israel's largest trade and political partners, will not attend the Trump-led conference.

More to come...
