May 10, the Times of Israel headed: ‘Poll: 74% of Israelis approve of Netanyahu’s health response to pandemic.’ According to a poll, 74% of Israelis approve of PMs health response to pandemic, 53% approve of his economic handling of the crisis, 57% are worried about their finances.
June 9, the Times of Israel headed: ‘Netanyahu soars in new poll.’ Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party would grow to 40 seats if fresh elections were held, and together with his right-wing religious allies could easily form a government without any of the Left-wing or Centrist parties.
On June 29, anti-Zionistic Haaretz reported that a Channel 12 News poll showed that 58 percent of Israelis support Netanyahu’s handling of the public health aspects of the corona crisis, while in a Channel 13 News poll, 57 percent say they’d obey any restrictions imposed by the government.
The Israeli public has a short attention span and no memory. Through no fault of our own, we’re overworked, overstressed, and under-slept. The truth is that three months ago, Bibi was doing great in the polls, and also two months ago, and one month ago. But no one remembers.
These are the facts, not opinions! Netanyahu would do good to remind us.
It’s not his fault that we got a second wave, got tired of corona, and got riled up by steady political, media, and ‘social’ media slander against him.
And he should not change anything. Bibi, just continue what you’re doing, head high, making the best of it. Even if at the present, almost everyone trashes you, like they trashed Golda Meir (everyone needs a scapegoat?), history will vindicate you and paint you as the great leader you are.
While outside the Jewish State, antisemitism soars, inside Israel, the PM is blamed. As if life gets better by heaping baseless blame on the guiltless who allegedly are all-powerful and when things go wrong must be evil.
Thank you, Bibi. Don’t ever change.
