This is all Bibi’s fault. First his stupid “cease fire” with Hamas, which strengthened their hand and angered many in the Israeli south who were victims of their missiles. Then his over-the-top attacks on the very right-wing “Jewish Home” party, where Bibi’s Likud party called them out as “extremists”. This weakened Jewish Home and handed votes to the center-left “Yesh Atid” party run by an empty suit former newsreader named Yair Lapid (get used to the name, he is the new star of Israeli politics). Bibi doesn’t care, because he will still rule and will be freed to pursue the same centrist, elitist policies he did in the late 90s, when he gave away Hebron to the Arabs. Bibi is not as great as FReepers think he is.
Okay, he’s not perfect, but for a foreign politician dealing with what he faces on a daily basis (leftist JINOS, Islamic supremacy rhetoric, Iranian nukes, being accused of enacting apartheid by two-bit nations who have enough of their own problems), he’s not a bad prime minister. Much better than the Olmert guy who was on... was it Gretta?... a few nights ago. The guy seemed like a total moron, whining about how Bibi hadn’t been patient enough with the thugs in Gaza and the West Bank. Netanyahu also has a lot of hatred for the Marxist in the White Hut, so he and I have something in common there.
Put it this way, I sure as hell would love to switch Zero out for him! haha
