Video shows Netanyahu did not clap for Rivlin alongside rest of Knesset

Hebrew media has noted that as MKs gave outgoing president Reuven Rivlin a standing ovation at the Knesset earlier, former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu apparently did not.

Netanyahu stood along with other MKs, but appeared to keep his hands at his sides.

There was a lot of bad blood between Netanyahu and Rivlin. Netanyahu attempted to prevent Rivlin from being elected president, and his party and associates repeatedly attacked the president during his seven-year term, alleging various supposed conspiracies to remove him from power.
