    Re: Netanyahu poised for third straight term as Israel PM after chief rival concedes

    Why should who gets elected in Israel be of any consequence whatsoever to Americans and why does it matter so much ?

    The UK has an election in a couple of months and that won't generate a tenth of the posts Israels have even though nominally we are supposed to be your closest ally

    Whats really going on here ?

    602 days till the next election..........God help us.

    I remember Odie! At least he was likable, but the analogy fits.

    They have countdown clocks you can get off the web. It would be cool if you could add them in your signature line.

    2. The U.S. and Israel have vast common interests and a deep enduring relationship. Whether the Zionist Union or Likud had prevailed and gained the opportunity to form the next government does not change any of this.

    3. Given those shared interests, enduring relationship and, of course, my personal admiration for what Israel's people have accomplished in myriad fields and endeavors--often in the face of severe adversity--I continue to want Israel to be secure and prosperous. Those sentiments would not have changed had Israel chosen a new Prime Minister. They won't change when, at some point in time, Israel has a new Prime Minister.
    ..and what position are you running for?

    Ukraine? Ah.....no

    Mexico? Probably as they get to export criminals and the poor.

    I know, Libya! where Obama and Clinton changed a corrupt regime.


    That leaves Saudi Arabia, Iran, and ISIS.


    Good friends to have in time of trouble
    This is leftism in practice, long after the rhetoric/theory.

    Apparently some of this lesson has rubbed off on Americans, Im hopeful it sticks.
