Israeli PM Netanyahu Reaches Deal With Allies to Avert Early Election

In a 40 minute interview during which the prime minister spoke of Israel's key political and economic challenges, when questioned as to whether Israel had seen warmer relations with countries in the Gulf, Netanyahu replied: "That's definitely right".

At a meeting with ministers of his Likud party on Sunday, Netanyahu was quoted by Israeli media as saying he was working for a stable government that would serve out its term until a national election due in November 2019. The bill allows for the exemption of ultra-Orthodox yeshiva students from drafting into the military.

Mark Levin sat down with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for a fascinating, wide-ranging conversation that will air on "Life, Liberty and Levin" on Sunday, March 11th, at 10:00pm ET on Fox News Channel.

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday that the Trump administration's peace plan for the Middle East is still in the planning stages.

"If you bring down a right-wing government and lead us to unnecessary elections for personal aims, you will lose us", Bennett added on Twitter, apparently hinting at withdrawing future support for Netanyahu if the prime minister is indicted.

"It is a fake crisis that can be resolved".

In addition to receiving her own day, Williams' story caught the attention of Texas Southern University President Austin A. Evoni Williams, 18, went viral earlier this month for helping an elderly customer at the Waffle House Texas eat his food.

But while the ministerial committee for legislation approved the controversial bill, Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman has not said whether he will accept the compromise.

Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon is meanwhile insisting that the budget be approved before the end of this week. Members of Netanyahu's government have argued in recent days over whether to extend the exemptions demanded by ultra-Orthodox leaders.

"In order for that to happen, all the parties need to reach agreements and decide to continue together", he said, implying that he was not the cause of the dispute.

Later in the day Netanyahu was summoned by lawmakers to address parliament about the current crisis and reiterated that there was still time to settle any differences.

The 68-year-old premier could soon face charges in at least two separate corruption affairs.
