    If there is one thing that unifies the vast majority of Israelis it is their dislike of Barack Obama.

    That being said, it didn't help the opposition that the Power Sharing agreement between the chief rivals fell apart the night before elections.

    So you too missed the criticism of successive administrations interfering with Israeli elections. I'll slow things down for you guys in the future.

    Publics in the Middle East give Obama’s foreign policy agenda very low marks. In most of the countries surveyed, roughly two-in-ten or fewer support his international policies. Israelis again stand out – 57% endorse Obama’s policies.

    You would have to ask Obama, who sent his 2012 field campaign manager to Israel to defeat Netanyahu that question.

    Hardly surprising that a western nation in the heart of the middle east would generally be friendly to the US. But on Iran, and with this weak leader it no doubt suffered.

    It was a big surprise since the overwhelming majority of the polls just before the elections have all predicted an Herzog win and the question was only by how much. Also, there was a lot of talk regarding the mainstream media being anti-Netanyahu, so Likud supporters are taking an "in your face" attitude towards them. Netanyahu even said that he had won "against all odds".
