Israel's Kingmaker

The story of this recent Israeli election was Avigdor Lieberman. It was interesting to follow him around Rishon Le Tzion on election day. The man for some reason reminded me of Hansel and Gretel, except instead of leaving bread crumbs, he left heated arguments wherever he went on his campaign trail.

Here is the video I made for Time on Israel's New Kingmaker




Avigdor Lieberman on the Campaign Trail











The former Moldovan bouncer is now the third most powerful man in Israel. His Yisrael Beitenu (Israel is Our Home Party) received 15 mandates for the Knesset, an increase of four since the 2006 election. Now he will likely determine Israel's next prime minister.
