Kingship is Hashem’s and He rules the nations. Psalms 22:29 (The Israel BibleTM)

Rabbi  Shalom Cohen, the spiritual leader of the Haredi Shas political party and a leading Sephardi spiritual leader, reacted to news of the dissolution of the ruling coalition from Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital where he is convalescing.

“God’s  name is praised in the world!” Rabbi Cohen said after Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced his plans to call for the dissolution of the Knesset. “A government that harmed and tried to destroy Judaism and the sanctity of Israel and harmed the weak has been driven from the world. The holy one, blessed be he, has had mercy on the People of Israel.”

“And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding.” Daniel 2:21

The rabbi had previously responded to the resignation of Yamina MK Idit Silman certain, which broke Bennett’s majority, beginning the process culminating this week in the coalition disbanding by saying, “They [the coalition] think they can harm God, but they will repent or fall!”

“We say to the Holy One, blessed be He, do it for Your sake, not for the sake of the nation of Israel, but for Your sake,” the rabbi prayed. “They’re destroying all of Am Yisrael.”

The dissolution of the government will send Israelis back to the polls for the fifth time in less than four years.
