Israelis went to the polls this past week, but results produced a stalemate leading to a period of uncertainty as to which Israeli leader will form the next government. While Benny Gantz’s Blue and White party received two more Knesset mandates than the incumbent – Prime Minster Netanyahu’s Likud, neither side has enough support to form a government. The ball is now in the court of President Reuven Rivlin to try and help the sides make compromises to reach the necessary 61 seats. If not, Israel could in fact be headed towards yet another election – its third in less than a year, this coming winter.  On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, Josh tries to sort out the confusion and explain Rivlin’s daunting task.
