Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has solidified a fifth term in a nail biter election against Benny Gantz. At 2 a.m. in Tel Aviv, Netanayhu gave a few brief remarks, thanked voters and kissed his wife.

After Channel 12 updates exit poll from 37-33 Gantz to 35-34 Netanyahu, the left is left with hardly a prayer. It is an extraordinary triumph for Bibi and a crushing, deflating moment for his critics and opponents.
