‘Will Bibi break Israel?’ Economist asks on cover of latest edition

On the cover of its latest edition, British magazine The Economist features a portrait of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as part of a lead editorial warning against the government’s far-reaching judicial overhaul plans.

“Will Bibi break Israel?” the headline reads, using Netanyahu’s nickname.

Last month, the weekly published a cartoon ridiculing the overhaul that portrayed Netanyahu taking a bat to “judicial independence.”
