    Netanyahu poised for 3rd straight term Israel PM after rival concedes[W:350:384]

    Netanyahu poised for third straight term as Israel PM after chief rival concedes | Fox News

    Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu began working Wednesday to form a coalition government with nationalist and ultra-Orthodox Jewish parties after his conservative Likud party scored a resounding and surprising victory following a fractious election campaign.

    Netanyahu said that he had spoken with the heads of five other parties that he hoped to bring into his government, adding that he hopes to complete the delicate task in "two to three weeks."

    "The reality isn't waiting on us," Netanyahu said in a statement. "Reality isn't taking a break. The citizens of Israel expect us to quickly put together a leadership that will work for the sake of the country's security, economy, and society as we promised to do, and that is what I will do."
    Frankly I thought maybe Netanyahu wasn't going to win. But then the average Israeli probably looks at him differently.

    Some of the reaction in this country led by the rhetoric of the current occupant in the WH shows just how anti Israel many in this country are. Israel is the best Ally the U.S. has in the Region and the country closest to being a democracy yet Obama and his Administration continue to show their incompetence as well as true colors. Is there anyone here who can honestly claim that Radical Islam wants Israel to exist? Looks to me like we have a lot of radical Islam supporters here in this country as well.

    You really don't understand leadership, do you? Why didn't Obama give the Netanyahu speech to Congress and why hasn't Obama done more to support Israel? Apparently you have a very short memory, Arab Spring! ISIS!

    Are you referring to the 47 signers of that Iranian letter that sides with their hardliner's? If so, I agree.

    You may have noticed that the thread is about Netanyahu, and not Obama. Actually, you apparently didn't notice that, so here's a hint: it was about Netanyahu, not Obama.

    The question remains, why didn't Obama give the Netanyahu speech and send the letter to Iran? You think that the billion Muslims are going to allow Israel to exist if Israel put down their weapons tomorrow? Radical Islam is the problem not Israel.

    It is about the future of Israel and their relationship with the U.S. With Obama in the WH that future is bleak. Netanyahu is a leader and Obama doesn't understand the concept. Netanyahu remains in power much to the WH's chagrin. I am sure you support the WH trying to undermine Netanyahu by supporting his opposition.

    Obama giving that speech wouldn't have helped Netanyahu's reelection campaign. He wouldn't have wanted Obama to give it.

    In what way does it 'side with their hardliners?' Or are you just repeating the latest talking points from your MSNBC masters without thinking it through on your own?
