I sure hope so, the world will need a strong leader in the next 4 years.
Looks like Kadima won.

And Obama will evolve to become Bibi's greatest enemy.
I support Bibi.
I’m so confused, I thought Livni won, I want Netanyahu to win, I hope that he won. We need him, under Livni she will be Obama’s puppet
