    The Central Elections Committee issued an injunction tonight (Sunday) against the left-wing NGO Zazim‘s initiative to bus 15,000 Arab voters to voting booths on election day, ruling that the initiative is in violation of the election laws. Zazim (movement) is an NGO that is backed by the New Israel Fund (NIF) which is backed by billionaire currency manipulator George Soros. The injunction came following a petition submitted by the Likud arguing that Zazim, which is heavily funded by the US-based New Israel Fund, is violating the election the laws. In 2017, the Knesset passed the “V15” law aimed at preventing...

    Imagine if Israel's prime minister Bibi Netanyahu had been defeated in yesterday's elections. You have to think Morning Joe would have heralded the news at the very top of today's show. That's big news, when the "right side of history" prevails. Instead, they led with major-league baseball and Brexit chaos. When she eventually got around to reporting Bibi's win, a bitter Mika Brzezinski sounded like she was sucking on lemons. Mika emphasized the negative, and made unsubtle, sarcastic analogies to President Trump. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The Obama administration is using taxpayer dollars to fund a radical anti-Israel group that aims to drive Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from office in March parliamentary elections. And the U.S.-based group receiving the U.S. government money, OneVoice International, in turn is working with V15, an “independent grassroots movement” in Israel, according to Ha’aretz. V15’s unofficial motto is said to be “anyone but Bibi,” a reference that includes the prime minister’s nickname. OneVoice has reportedly hired Obama campaign aides such as Jeremy Bird of political consulting powerhouse 270 Strategies to take on Netanyahu’s Likud Party. Bird was national field director...

    Israeli elections have produced strange results, while the intention of the majority of the Israeli electorate is rather obvious, the candidate with the most votes is not the one who will be able to form a stable coalition. In fact, though there was a sharp turn to the right, the election results show the electorate being fed up by the shenanigans of both Tzippi Livni and her left wing allies, as well as Bibi Netanyahu’s heavy-handed changing of the rules after the internal party’s elections in order to kick Moshe Feiglin down to an unrealistic position, just because Bibi was...

    Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel's leading candidate for prime minister, said Saturday that Iran "will not be armed with a nuclear weapon." In an interview with Israel's Channel 2 TV, Netanyahu said if elected prime minister his first mission will be to thwart the Iranian nuclear threat. Netanyahu, the current opposition leader and head of the hardline Likud party, called Iran the greatest danger to Israel and to all humanity. When asked if stopping Iran's nuclear ambitions included a military strike, he replied: "It includes everything that is necessary to make this statement come true."

Can Kadima lead an effective government with less than a quarter of the seats? David Horovitz: It seems that many people voted for the party or leader they least disliked, rather than most admired. With Kadima, they certainly knew what they were voting for more clearly than they would have done had Sharon led the party into the elections. Sharon was insisting he had no plans for further disengagement,...

    The Promise of Kadima By Guardian Unlimited / World news 12:07pm The elections here are just under three weeks away. If the polls can be believed, Kadima, Ehud Olmert's party, will get the largest number of seats and form the next government. Since November, surveys have shown Kadima well in the lead, and it has remained there despite the seemingly incredible turns of event - from Ariel Sharon's debilitating stroke to Hamas's unexpected victory in the Palestinian elections. I, for one, am not surprised. I come from a long-time Labor family. During the '90s I supported the Oslo accords and...

    No Trust between Israel’s Right and Left By Susan L. Rosenbluth, The Jewish Voice and Opinion, Englewood, NJ   Someone once joked that the Israeli chicken is made up of a Left wing and a Right wing and nothing in the middle. These days, not only is this true, it seems to be getting worse. With elections coming at the end of March, the two sides are locked in a struggle in which the lack of trust is the only common denominator. Neither the Right nor the Left accepts Kadima, which was started by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon last...
