I wonder, in Israel, if:
You have to show ID to vote
Black Panthers are allowed to “hang out” at polling stations with clubs and bats
The ballots are secured for any recounts (no finding a trunk load of ballots in a Chevy)
That if you are too stupid to fill out a ballot correctly, it will not count
That they take serious voter fraud
Congratulations Bibi. I’ll bet Obama is none too pleased right about now.
God bless Netanyahu and may God bless Israel!
Compared to expectations a few weeks ago, Netanyahu lost. The peace promoting left also lost along with Netanyahu. The center won, a center that seems more concerned with domestic economic issues than making peace or war.
He won, but will he be able to govern and do what he wants to do since literally any defection by any party could bring his government down?
I’m sorry if this is a naive question to ask, but, where does this leave Moshe Feiglin?
Netanyahu, according to Obama you have a ‘mandate’ now.
Go for it!
The headline says that the final vote was 61 for the Right bloc and 59 for the Center-Left, which only makes sense if Yesh Atid is categorized as part of the Center-Left. But the article then said that Yesh Atid was joining Likud’s ruling coalition, so a better headline would have been that the Right and Center-Right won 80 seats and the Left and Center-Left only 40.
What a novel concept.
If only Israeli politics were that simple. Bibi screwed himself, and Yesh Atid won. Now Bibi’ll have to include these left wingnut retards in the government, or face an opposition with some punch, and Shas will probably be in the opposition. Will Bayit Yehudi be, too? If so, he’ll still face an opposition with some punch, and dissent within Likud from the Feiglin camp. Thanks for all the back-biting, Bibi. Hope you enjoy the no-confidence vote that’ll force another election.
Parenthetically, if only Bayit Yehudi had gotten one more seat, our good friends’ son Hillel Horowitz would be set for life, as all MKs are. Thanks all you Otzma voters.
