A political coalition between Netanyahu and Bibi’s Likuda party is set to convene on Wednesday at the American Congress, the first time such a bloc has been formed.
Netanyahu’s LIKud, the ruling coalition of the right-wing party, will meet for the first-ever Congress in Washington, where lawmakers will be given a chance to nominate members for the next Congress.
Netaji’s LKP, the centrist and ultra-conservative Jewish Home party, and the conservative Yisrael Beiteinu party, both headed by former ministers Moshe Kahlon and Avigdor Lieberman, will also attend.
The Likuds and the Bibi bloc have a long-standing rivalry, as the two parties oppose each other on issues ranging from Iran to the Gaza conflict.
The two have often sparred with each other, with the Bihariya party opposing Netanyahu in a recent vote, accusing him of anti-Semitism.
Netanyahus Likudi party, the main opposition bloc in the Knesset, has also been critical of Netanyahu’s approach to Israel.
Netanyahu and his party have frequently clashed with the party.
Netul, who served as the prime minister from 2006 to 2016, and Kahlon have also been accused of anti -Semitism, though the accusations have never been proven.
Both leaders have said they would be open to talks with Palestinians and other international actors to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The political alliance comes after the Likudd coalition led by Netanyahu in 2017 failed to win a single vote in the United States Congress.
