‘The spell has been broken’: Netanyahu the ‘wizard’ has lost his magic touch and Israel will forever be changed
Analysis: What next after he failed to sweep a majority in the elections, asks Bel Trew
No one was chanting “magician” when a hoarse Benjamin Netanyahu took to the stage of his half-empty elections headquarters at 3am on Wednesday.
