Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is named one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People for 2021. Various writers in the prestigious American magazine, journalists from around the world and other opinion leaders have chosen the 100 most influential people in the world for the current year in politics, arts, sports, innovation And more.
The man who was asked to write about his acquaintance over the pages of the magazine is none other than the chairman of Ra’am Mansour Abbas, whose decision to join the coalition of Bennett and Yair Lapid enabled the formation of the “government of change.“
And so Abbas wrote: “In the end, it all comes down to courage. After four elections in two years, it took a bold move to unite a country that was broken by a political stalemate and led to a desperate stalemate. Something dramatic had to change, but more importantly, someone brave had to do “This change. Naftali Bennett got involved in a political storm to create inconceivable connections in the past between left and right, Arabs and Jews, religious and secular. He established one of the most diverse governments in the history of Israel.“
“I do not do things in the dark,” Bennett, now prime minister, told me at a Knesset meeting. As the leader of an Arab party, I got used to the cameras staying out of the room. “Only the flash of cameras that illuminated the room at that moment, but the hope for a brighter future for all of us,” Abbas wrote.
