Not a speaker at the state ceremony, Netanyahu finds a way to do so anyway

The prime minister does not usually speak at the official Independence Day celebration. That task is reserved for the Knesset speaker.

However, Benjamin Netanyahu appears to have circumvented that limitation by having organizers air a video which he narrated, and in which he fetes the apparent end of the pandemic and return to normal life.

With the prospects of a new government entirely unclear, this may well be the first campaign video of the fall 2021 election.
