Netanyahu loses once again!

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

Netanyahu is another right wing,dangerous zealot that needs to go.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

There are many strong opinions about Israel, but from these news the fact that the arabs are quite well represented in the Israeli parliament impressed me.

"The Joint Arab List made a strong showing in Tuesday's election and was projected to capture 13 to 15 seats in the legislature, compared with 10 won by various Arab factions in April's election."

Last year Netanyahu made the new Nation Law stating Israel is only for the Jews.

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Israeli elections, a choice between thieves.

Nevertheless, I hope Netanyahu loses. He has absolutely no intention of forging a fair peace settlement with the Palestinians.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

Will pop a champagne if Netanyahu fails to form a government and is forced to step. The workd especially the middle east will be better without him.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

One of the major issues in the forthcoming election is whether Israel should illegally annex the occupied West Bank. The three million Palestinians who live in the West Bank whose lives will be forever changed by that decision have no say in the matter since they can't vote in Israeli elections. On what planet is that a democracy?

The new Nation Law last year turned Israel into an apartheid state.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

This would be good news but the person replacing him seems like he will be even more extreme. Isreal doesn't just want exist. It wants to be the dominant power in the region.

How's that peace deal coming along?

By Wednesday, all three of Israel's three main TV news channels were projecting Gantz's Blue and White winning 32 seats, to 31 seats for Netanyahu's Likud, in the 120-seat Parliament.

The new Nation Law last year turned Israel into an apartheid state.

I think you mean to to say "officialized" it. Israel has been an apartheid state for a very long time.

Israel used to be the home of holocaust survivors. It has moved on to become the home for those committing crimes against humanity by continued persecution of Palestinians. The sympathies gained from the horrors of WWII have been squandered and the generation that came after have overcompensated and now create horrors against others. Such a shame.

Concerned Citizen - Nevertheless, I hope Netanyahu loses. He has absolutely no intention of forging a fair peace settlement with the Palestinians.

Is that because the Palestinians refuse to accept Israel's right to even exist? It's difficult to negotiate with the followers of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini.

Strange, eh? An artificially created state, propped up with American money and weapons, and filled with extremist nut-jobs like Jewish Power. What's not to like?

How do you have peace talks with someone who doesn't believe you have a right to exist? Palestinians are willing to accept any proposed two-state proposal as long as the other member of that two-state government no longer exists. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, would be proud of the current Palestinians efforts in the area.

How do you have peace talks with someone who doesn't believe...

Yes, that's basically the same as your last comment.

The zionist Netanyahu has ever wanted peace.
