Benjamin Netanyahu was born in Tel-Aviv, Israel on October 21, 1949. He is the son of Benzion Netanyahu, a professor, and Tzila Segal. He has two siblings: Iddo and Yonatan.
Benjamin attended Henrietta Szold Elementary School in Jerusalem. When his family relocated to the United States, he attended and graduated from Cheltenham High School in Pennsylvania. When he completed his secondary schooling, Benjamin returned to Israel and served in the Defense Forces as a soldier and elite special forces. Following the Yom Kippur War, he went back to the U.S. and earned a degree from the MIT Sloan School of Management.
He has been married three times: Miriam Weizmann (1972 to 1978), Fleur Cates (1981 to 1984), and Sara Ben-Artzi (1991 to present). He has three children: Yair, Avner, and Noa.

Some of his political positions include advocating free market principles, tightening immigration laws, enhancing counter-terrorism methods, privatizing parts of the public sector, supporting LGBT rights, and maintaining a strong relationship with the United States.
He has published four books: “International Terrorism: Challenge and Response,” “Terrorism: How the West Can Win,” “Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorism,” and “Durable Peace: Israel and Its Place Among the Nations.”
We estimate that Benjamin Netanyahu’s net worth is $11 million (2017).
So how much is $11 million really?
$11 million can pay for a fraction of a percent of the Israeli national debt. $11 million can also cover Israel’s fee given to the United Nations.
