This would likely NOT have happened were it not for the rocket strikes into southern ISrael from the Hamas criminals running Gaza.
I hope Hamas likes what is about to happen to them because I don't think Kadima will treat them with kid gloves.
Note, this article makes a mistake in the first sentence. Netanyhu is the Kadima leader, not Likud leader.JERUSALEM – Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu has declared victory in Tuesday's parliamentary election. Netanyahu told his supporters in a speech early Wednesday that he was proud of the gains by his hardline party. Exit polls show Likud coming in second, but in a better position to lead a coalition government because of a strong showing by other nationalist parties.
