Netanyahu has won, but still has everything to lose

However, the right-wing bloc in the parliament secured a majority big enough to make Netanyahu highly likely to form the next coalition government.

He also tweeted a picture of a Netanyahu supporter waving a Trump flag and telephoned the premier to offer congratulations.

Israel's president says he will receive party representatives at his residence on Monday to hear their recommendations for who should be the next prime minister.

"He's a magician!" the crowd chanted as fireworks flared and Netanyahu kissed his wife Sara. Palestinians, angered by what they see as Trump's pro-Israel bias, have called it a non-starter.

Israel's 21 percent Arab minority saw its parties lose seats.

In Taybeh, an Arab town, Hadash party official Hosam Azem, 52, said: "Arabs who don't vote, majority don't do it for ideological reasons - just because they don't think their vote will have an impact", he said.

Breaking with decades of United States policy and global consensus, Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital in 2017 and Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights last month.

Netanyahu, who narrowly won a historic fifth term this week, promised at the end of the election campaign that he would annex at least parts of the West Bank - a move that would effectively preclude a negotiated deal for a Palestinian state.

"The hope or yearning for peace is foreign to them", said Yohanan Plesner, president of the Israel Democracy Institute, a think tank in Jerusalem, told the Journal.

Few doubt, it will translate into Mr Netanyahu scrapping the two-state solution altogether, with his proposed annexation of the West Bank and refusal to give up Israeli settlements a signal that Gaza could be the Palestinians' only refuge.

The last round of US -brokered peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians collapsed in 2014. Our party consists of right, left, religious and secular.
