Is Netanyahu preparing an heir to the throne?

Is Netanyahu preparing an heir to the throne?

Haaretz analyst Yossi Werther speculates that the appearance of Yair Netanyahu, the elder son of Benjamin and Sara Netanyahu, in photos during and after the campaign, as well as the prime minister’s lengthy praise of his two sons during his victory speech Tuesday night, hints that he is grooming the young man (21) to succeed him.

It is hard to say where the analysis by Werther, who is not a fan of Netanyahu, stands on the spectrum between conspiratorial truth and utter drivel.

But here’s a picture of the PM and his kid at the Western Wall:
