Former US Ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk predicts there will be a “rocky road” ahead for Israel-US relations if Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu forms a government with the far-right Religious Zionism party.

“The Biden administration doesn’t have a good history of relations with Netanyahu, and if he takes on these far-right extremists into his government and into his cabinet, then I think we’re in for a rocky road,” Indyk says in remarks broadcast on Channel 12.

Netanyahu’s right-religious bloc is poised to win a clear victory in Israel’s elections.
