The Heat

Benjamin Netanyahu is about to make history.

Following Tuesday’s close parliamentary election, Mr. Netanyahu is set to become Israel’s longest serving prime minister with four consecutive terms — a record five overall. The election comes at a time when he faces possible indictment in three corruption cases. The prime minister has denied any wrongdoing.
