Who Is Naftali Bennett, Israel’s New PM Succeeding Benjamin Netanyahu?

Naftali Bennett became Israel's new prime minister after the Knesset, the country’s parliament, approved a new coalition government, effectively ending Benjamin Netanyahu's 12-year premiership. A tech millionaire turned right-wing politician, Bennett could usher Israel into a more aggressively nationalist era than his predecessor—particularly as it pertains to the Palestinians. Bennett, a 49-year-old adherent to Orthodox Judaism, is widely perceived as a religious ultra-nationalist politician.
