Israel is heading for its third election in a year

Deadlocked by many of the same factors as Britain’s, Israel’s electoral system may offer a glimpse of our political future.

If madness is doing the same thing again and again and expecting different results, Israel’s political system could perhaps be certified insane. After months of frustrated attempts to form a governing coalition, voters will head to the polls yet again on 2 March 2020, following elections in April and September this year.

Forming a government has become a Sisphean task for Israeli lawmakers. After April’s election, lawmakers voted to dissolve Knesset and call another election in September, after Netanyahu failed to form a coalition. At that time, rather than return his mandate to the president so his main rival, former Israeli army chief Benny Gantz, could have a go, a Netanyahu ally introduced a bill to dissolve Knesset and head for elections in September. Netanyahu is nothing if not a sore loser. But this, too, failed to provide a conclusive victory. President Reuven Rivlin urged the two main parties, Gantz’s centrist Blue and White alliance and Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud, to form a unity government. But with no member of the Knesset able to drum up sufficient support to lead, Israel now faces its third election in space of a year, a first in the country’s short history.

There are a lot of historical firsts here. Israel’s political groundhog day is not in any way normal; it is indicative of a broken system.

Another historical first was reached in November, when it was revealed that Netanyahu was to face indictment on criminal charges, the first sitting prime minister to be in that position. As Yair Lapid, one of Blue and White’s leaders said on Wednesday, “there are only three reasons for this election — bribery, fraud and breach of trust.”

Israel’s stalemate is proof …read more

Vasiliy Khamotiskiy slapping champion

A Russian slapping maestro has been slapped unconscious.
Vasiliy Khamotiskiy, a full-time farmer who slaps people in his spare time, won the male slapping championship at an event in Krasnoyarsk earlier this year.
His winning slapping streak was brought to an abrupt end this month, though, as he was hit so hard he face-planted a metal barrel in front of him.
According to RT.com, Khamotiskiy was hospitalized. He said the slap sent him into a “mini coma.”

A Russian slapping maestro was recently slapped unconscious in a slap sports shocker.

Full-time farmer Vasiliy Khamotiskiy, a 300-pound slapper in his spare time, has attracted internet fame this year for his extraordinary ability to slap people senseless.

Khamotiskiy, nicknamed “Dumpling” because he likes the food so much, was building up so many wins, he even won 30,000 rubles ($475) when he was awarded the male slapping championship at even event in Krasnoyarsk in March.

Since then he has gone on a slapping winning streak, one which was brought to an abrupt halt this month when he was slapped into a “mini coma” after he was hit so hard he face-planted a metal barrel that had been put between him and his opponent.

Watch Khamotiskiy’s stunning loss below:

Khamotiskiy was hospitalized briefly after the slap knockout, but said after that he “liked” the shot that finished him, according to RT.com. He also said he was sent into a “mini coma.”

Khamotiskiy said: “It was a good hook, I liked it. I was put to sleep for a little bit. I could have carried on but they grabbed me and wanted to get me out of there.”

RT added that the knockout did not leave Khamotiskiy disheartened, as he was seen on video happily eating dumplings after his defeat.
