Looks like Netanyahu is finally a goner. Don't let the door hit you.

JERUSALEM — After 27 years of sitting out decisions on who should lead Israel, Arab lawmakers on Sunday recommended that Benny Gantz, the centrist former army chief, be given the first chance to form a government over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a watershed assertion of political power.

Ayman Odeh, the leader of the Arab Joint List, wrote in a New York Times Op-Ed published on Sunday that the alliance’s 13 incoming lawmakers — the third-largest faction in the newly elected Parliament — had decided to recommend Mr. Gantz because it would “create the majority needed to prevent another term for Mr. Netanyahu.”

“It should be the end of his political career,” Mr. Odeh wrote.

Assuming Gantz can put something together that works. He still needs to get a few more votes, and he was not that far ahead of Netanyahu (last time I looked he was ahead 57-55). We should follow Berra's advice and not call the game until it is actually over ... otherwise, Murphy's Law tends to take effect (no matter which side one is on).
