"Right wing bloc only 50 seats - not enough"

You have a pretty generous idea then of what is included in the "Right wing bloc". The only parties that will be true opposition (rather than just pawns in coalition deals with Kadima) are Likud and NRP/NU, and of those 2 the Likud may be vulnerable to takeover by a Kadima lackey now that Bibi will get the boot.

Disengagement is a war-weariness-induced fantasy of the Israelis. It will ultimately fail for many reasons, not the least of which is that Israeli arabs will join the suicide bombing party (they can smell Muslim victory already).

For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water, The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator. And I will give children [to be] their princes, and babes shall rule over them. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable. When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, [saying], Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and [let] this ruin [be] under thy hand: In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house [is] neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people. For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings [are] against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of his glory. Isaiah 3:1-8

look for a weakening or reversal of the economic gains of the Bibi economy

If those turn out the final results, they will manage to screw everything up, particularly the economy, but Kadima's agenda of unilateral withdrawal will never occur.

If true, Israel has chosen death.

My thoughts exactly. However if the Palis and their allies reach that conclusion and act too boldly, rather than continuing to boil the frog, things could still change.

Still, don't look for forceful action by the Israelis against the Iranian nuclear threat. The US (and maybe the UK) will have to take care of that ourselves.

Warm up the B-2s.

Separation from the Arabs is not death. It is our greatest hope for a secure future.

Likud finished fourth, BTW. The "right" includes Yisrael Beitenu (finished third) and Avigdor Lieberman is in favor of putting the Arabs outside our borders. He even wants to withdraw from Umm al-Fahm and other Arab towns in Israel proper (inside the Green line). UTJ sat in coalition during disengagement, and Shas is likely to be in coalition as well. Likely seats against separation: under 25. Prime Minister Olmert should be able to get 85-90 votes for. He needs 61.

I guess the Israelis don't wish to "study war no more" and are now in the position of the post WW-I Brits who would "not fight for King and country".

We know where that lead. Six Million dead Jews, millions more of other "undesirables", and millions just caught in the crossfire. This action leads to just as dark a place.

You are assuming that the separation will hold, and the land the Palestinians get will sate them. A guy named Chamberlain thought the same, and thought he had achieved "Peace in Our Time". He hadn't. The enemies of his country were not nearly so close, nor so numerous compared to his own country.

Separation is a fantasy.

All that is being done is unilateral withdrawals with the land being taken over by terrorists who will import more and deadlier weapons.

The wall will protect no one.

You are living in the Land of La La if you believe that "separation" can work if Jews are the only ones who are displaced.

Remove every last Jew from surrendered "territories" and you still have a huge hostile and privileged Arab population who must NEVER EVER BE UPROOTED FROM THEIR BELOVED OLIVE TREES and who are demanding NOT ENOUGH, WE WANT MORE LAND, MORE CONCESSIONS, AND THE RIGHT OF RETURN.

Separation is great. Look at the great results from the Gaza
separation.

Amazing!...As the Palestinians become more and more dangerous, the Israelis become more and more liberal. They are signing their own death sentence.

Hi ho..hi ho...in to the death chamber we go?
