Italy's neo-fascist Meloni congratulates Netanyahu on victory
A neo-Fascist has congratulated a Zionist on his continued reign over occupied Palestine.
Italy's neo-fascist Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni on Thursday congratulated Benjamin Netanyahu on his victory in the Israeli elections.
"Congratulations-Mazel Tov to @netanyahu for the electoral success," Meloni said on Twitter. "Ready to strengthen our friendship and our bilateral relations, to better face our common challenges."
Netanyahu, along with his "right-wing" coalition, has secured a clear victory and a majority in the Knesset after elections that kicked off two days ago, according to the Israeli electoral commission.
Netanyahu will most likely be the one distributing prominent roles for the co-leaders of a far-right alliance called Religious Zionism.
Meloni's Brothers of Italy party and its right-wing allies won the general elections in Italy last month, her victory marked the first of a neo-fascist since WW1 in Itay.
Lapid concedes defeat to Netanyahu
Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid on Thursday conceded defeat to Benjamin Netanyahu in this week's election, paving the way for the Israeli opposition leader to come back to power.
Lapid felicitated Netanyahu and asked his staff to prepare an organized transition of power, his office said.
"[...] Israel comes before any political consideration," Lapid said. "I wish Netanyahu success."
After a near-final vote count, Lapid revealed in an announcement that Netanyahu was securing a majority in the Knesset with his allies, and final results were expected later Thursday.
It is expected that the former prime minister will form the most right-wing government since the declaration of "Israel" upon his assumption of power.
"Israel" held on Tuesday its fifth election in four years, a prolonged political crisis that saw voters divided over Netanyahu's fitness to serve while on trial for corruption.
