That is bad news for peace.

8 ( +11 / -3 )

staking out a series of hard-line positions that will put him at odds with the international community.

The same international community that Israel needs for it's own legitimacy? Good luck with that, Bibi.

Netanyahu is Israel's Jihad John. Yes, this is the worst news for peace. It is also the worst news for human rights.

The Likud party slogan was surreal... "It's us or them". In what normal country would you even be able to get away with a slogan like that? Disgraceful.

It's not sure who will dominate the next coalition, but that won't be Netanyahu.

That is bad news for peace.

Israel under Bibi has never known peace. Now he's lost his majority, that lets a chance to his country to enter 21st century and leave the colonialist anachronism.

Netanyahu revealed his true colors, a racist war monger. Israel sadly is now confirmed as a pariah state.

Congrats to Mr. Nentanyahu.

"A Palestinian state would only ensure that territory will be taken over by Islamic extremists"

That scenario as stated by Netanyahu is very likely.

-3 ( +5 / -8 )

Congratulations. I knew he would make it good for him and for Israel.

Here are some words from Netanyahu - a man who wants a better Israel for all:

"The right-wing government is in danger. Arab voters are heading to the polling stations in droves,”

“Left-wing NGOs are bringing them in buses.”

As you can imagine, many Arabs ( not 'all' Bass ) weren't too impressed with this kind of rhetoric. Ugly, divisive and dangerous. Everything you'd expect from this very unpleasant man.

That maybe true but he we have never one didn't have much support if it was a close margin so you know if the opposition doesn't like it he is democratically elected, and everyone else has to deal with it that's it. I didn't like that Obama won, but I had to deal with it as well so that's life. You just have to deal with what you got.

Going to be a rough couple of decades.

World Peace has been taking a beating recently with the invasion Crimea, the US and their drones, Abe and his constitution, Netanyahu wanting to annihilate Arabs, and IS teaming up with Boko Haram.

Always the darkest before the dawn I guess.

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

What a disaster, the only thing Netanyahu is good at is bringing out the worst in everybody and being a war criminal

1 ( +3 / -2 )

There can be no peace in that region till the Jihadists are reined in. Blaming Bibi for standing up to murderous savages is hypocrisy.

If the same Jihadists were in the neighbourhoods of the above supposedly peace mongers , they would have been crying in drones.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Hamas is saying peace talks with Israel now would be absurd. Then again, it's absurd that they won Palestinian elections.

bass

You just have to deal with what you got.

So why not stop your incessant vitriol about Obama. Deal with what you got.

I do deal with it. But that doesn't mean I can't complain and show my dissatisfaction.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

In any normal country, Bibi would be sent to a rubber room. FOX news can't stop peddling the fear. The ultimate torture, locked in a rubber room with Bibi and have to watch FOX news 24/7

Heh, something tells me he likes dishing out that advice a lot more than he wants to receive it.

See:

Your second sentence contradicts your first.

Netanyahu continues, well done.

This is a very, very bad thing for all concerned. What a shame...

1 ( +2 / -1 )

The Arab Party has the 3rd-most seats. They may instead turn out to be the king-makers.

In any normal country, Bibi would be sent to a rubber room.

In any normal country Obama would have been impeached a long time ago and Hilary would be in cuffs.

No, they are just telling the facts, see and call Iran out for what its true intentions really are.

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

No, they are just telling the facts

I think you meant to say "their facts" right? And they tell them over and over and over to the point it becomes brainwashing. If you can't see that, then you are one lost puppy.

Waiting for Bibi to annouce that Iran will have a nuke in three years in 3...2...1...
