Naftali Bennett became Israel’s 13th Prime Minister in 2021 leading the most diverse government in the nation’s history. The government headed by Prime Minister Bennett – included Left & Right, religious and secular, and for the time in Israel’s history, an Arab party in the coalition. Prime Minister Bennett’s government delivered rapid results in a one-year period including: bringing the quietest year to Israel’s residents along the Gaza border and the Negev, overcoming a wave of terror, passing a reform-packed budget, successfully dealing with two waves of COVID, moving the conflict with Iran to its own soil, and reducing unemployment and the national deficit to record lows. Following the historic Abraham Accords, Bennett became the first Israeli Prime Minister to visit the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
