Former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has long been an important political figure in the country, has a memoir coming out this November.
Titled “Bibi: My Story”- the book will be published three weeks after parliamentary elections are to be held in Israel. In a statement released by Netanyahu and publisher Threshold Editions, a division of Simon & Schuster on Tuesday, the political leader said, “Born a year after the founding of the Jewish state, I have dedicated my life to combat the forces that seek its destruction and make peace with those that do not,” Netanyahu, 72, said in a statement released Tuesday by Threshold Editions, a division of Simon & Schuster that publishes conservative books.
“My story is one of tragedy and triumph, setbacks and successes, lessons learned and loved ones cherished. It is woven with that of Israel, which has proven that faith and resolve can overcome insurmountable odds to forge a brilliant future.”
Not his first take at writing, Netanyahu has also previously authored several books named “A Durable Peace” and “Fighting Terrorism,” among other books. According to Threshold, the upcoming book will range from Netanyahu’s early years to “his singular perspective on the geopolitics of the Middle East” and “his negotiations with Presidents Clinton, Obama, and Trump to secure the future of his country.”
