Jerusalem - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks to the media in front of the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest prayer site on March 18. Netanyahu won a surprise victory in Israel’s election to claim a fourth term after a hard tack to the right in the final days of campaigning that included the release of a video warning that Arab Israelis were planning to bus in voters to polling stations and a commitment that there would be no Palestinian state as long as he was in charge. The day after the election, Netanyahu backtracked, saying he was open to a two-state solution, but that the timing was not right at the present moment. slideshow
