Update: Peres picks Bibi, Ketzaleh likely cabinet choice
Update: President Shimon Peres has chosen Benjamen Ntanyahu to be the next Israeli PM. Netanyahu now has 28 days to form a coalition. Due to Meretz, Kadima and Labor refusing to sit in any Likud led coalition, Netanyahu will be forced to make an alliance with the nationalist and religious parties. It is now almost certain that Yaakov "Ketzaleh" Katz will be named to the cabinet as an important part of the upcoming coalition.
