When the world celebrates unbelief instead of faith
Question: Why is it big news when a Christian rocker loses his faith? Answer: Bad news about God and faith is often good news for the secular media.
Heading into national elections next week, a U.S.-born Israeli author says most Israeli voters couldn't care less about scandals.
Bennie Gantz and Benjamin Netanyahu are locked in a tight race. The upcoming March 2nd election is the third vote in less than a year after two elections in 2019 ended inconclusively. Pre-election surveys have predicted similar results in the next vote, potentially extending the deadlock.
Gantz's Blue and White party has tried to paint itself as a clean and scandal-free alternative to Netanyahu, who is to go on trial for corruption next month.
But now, Israeli prosecutors have opened a criminal investigation into a failed cybersecurity company headed by Gantz.
David Rubin, former mayor of the Israeli city of Shiloh and author of Trump and the Jews, thinks minor corruption issues are getting too much attention.
"In Israel, we're being faced with destruction by Iran and Iran's surrogate forces, and that's where the focus should be right now," he submits.
And while many voters are interested in where Netanyahu's trial is headed, Rubin says that does not mean they will shift to the left.
"The majority of Israeli voters are primarily right of center," the author asserts. "They want to see a Likud-led coalition, and they're going to vote for Likud or one of the parties on the right."
Rubin believes Likud voters will be faithful to the right-of-center cause, and he thinks it is "highly unlikely" that very many of them will shift to Gantz.
