The latest Facebook fad, at least among nationalist Israelis, is the sharing of humorous memes about Naftali Bennett. Unlike other memes about politicians, which tend to be mocking or critical – these memes are quite positive. At least some appear to have been created by religious Zionists.

The common theme in the memes is the depiction of Bennett as a superhero who can do no wrong.

One shows a child stepping on a shark, with the caption: "Bennett's first time on the beach."

Another shows a lone car braving the flood in Tel Aviv and says it is Bennett's.

Others show him braving the flood on a waterski and boat.

Yet another shows the bald-headed Bennett and says "defeats the Philistines, even without the hair."
