    More like his criticism of the American president.

    Along with patronizing the most extreme on the far right, breaking his pledge to a two-state solution.
    We know the price of this coalition--several thousand more settlements that guarantee no peace .
    Nimby, the Israeli people have spoken-and apparently a weak US POTUS helped inspire them.

    Israel knows Iran is about to get nukes, that leads to uncertainty and doubt-which tends to benefit a party with a strong national defense policy.
    Obama appeasing Iran likely aggravated that, as would his criticism of Netanyahu.

    At least thats the analysis I have seen to this point. These results are hot off the presses, Im sure there will be more to come.

    Obama does not appease Iran--that is a Blatant Irrational Lie, landing you back in the BIL zone for another night.
    Your OP is about Bibi winning--not about trashing Obama with BILs.

    Bill Kristol is the kind of Neocon idiot that destroyed 4,500 lives last decade.
    And 200,000 Iraqi civilians--and 22 USA soldiers committing suicide every day.

    Not to mention overloading the VA with tens of thousands of maimed Wounded Warriors Kristol doesn't give a damn about now.
    Plus the five-time draft-dodging chicken**** chickenhawk Cheney who started the current Iraqi disaster .

    He's been saying as much since at least October.

    No, that's just what they think. This freaks been claiming that Iran was "about to get nukes" for a quarter century, and the knuckle draggers keep following along. Oh well, I guess you get what you deserve.

    The 2nd most dangerous person in the world did this after visiting our GOP and getting advice from them on how to
    run a race-baiting campaign as well as appealing to the most far-right extremists elements in Israel with his two-state evolving.

    The same elements who have stated they want apartheid and will be in baby's coalition.
    You know, that loyalty oath thing.

    Plus the dude who wants to behead regular Palestinian citizens.

    Nimby now you are just attacking me and Bill Kristol (and Cheney )

    Im sorry you aren't happy with the election results, that you were sure were going to turn out differently.
    I think Israel made the right choice.

    Yeah I dont know how they could ever get that idea.

    I dont expect them to gamble with that, especially considering how tiny Israel is.
    We wouldn't either.

    He may have won this battle but he's already lost the war of world public opinion, as his economy will crumble with former partners pulling out.

    President Reagan would certainly be disappointed, since he supported the two-state solution, as did all GOP Presidents since WW2 .
    Why should the Israelis support a two state solution? we supported it since WW2 because the two state solution was the Brits Idea, and we didn't want to interfere, then they discovered oil in the Middle east and we didn't want to upset the power that goat herders who whip rape victims for being raped found with the worlds most valuable resource, now we frack frack frack away and Shia moslems who supported the Palestinians are fighting the Holy War against the Sunni and the palesitinians are being lazy griping about Israel and not fighting ISIS so they've become irrelevant.

    if Israel is to eschew the two state non-solution now is the time and good for them for taking it. it was never a workable idea, if the Jews want a Jewish homeland whats the point in integrating a moslem province when 99% of the middle east is already predominantly moslem? especially when the moslems have proven time and time again to be a fifth column in their society?

    the Israelis are not unwelcoming, the Circassians live in Israel and serve in the IDF and so do the Druze, (btw no one in the international community is agitating for a Circassian homeland or a two state solution in central Europe to take them back)

    I never understood the hate anyway that people on the left have for Israel, Israel is practically a socialist country the palestinians are far more right wing then anything you'll find in Europe or North America
