Israel readies to vote with Netanyahu's future at risk

Israel readies to vote with Netanyahu's future at riskIsraelis vote Tuesday in a high-stakes election on whether to extend Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s long tenure in power despite corruption allegations against him and a strong challenge by an ex-military chief. Bolstered by his reputation as guarantor of Israel’s security and economic growth, Netanyahu has spent more than 13 years as premier and opinion polls show that he could well win again. In a last-minute appeal to right-wing voters, Netanyahu said Saturday he was planning on annexing Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank if he wins.
