… Wow , that did not take Long [#Israel Government]…

.. well , it looks like PM Bibi was definitely thinking ahead .

.. today came the news that Netanyahu has already secured the majority support that he needs in order to form a new government . It appears to be a fairly strong one at that …

.. [h/t — Politico.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news article ..

.. Netanyahu ‘ s coalition appears to have moderates , as well as the requisite conservatives and ultra – Orthodox . It also gives him a significant margin of safety , in case one of the parties wants to take a walk . A coalition of 68 is good , but a coalition of 72 or 73 would be better …

.. as to Labour [and Issac Hertzog] . PM Bibi could well form a ” national government . ” That one could include the current case , in addition to Labour . Bibi could offer a siginifcant posting , such as the Foreign Ministry , to Hertzog . Such a move would be daring [and more moderate] . It would also be scary …

.. why ? because he would be thinking ahead to possible military action against Iran . A national government would be very helpful , with his political ” enemies ” inside the tent , instead of outside of it …

… The Impact of the israeli Election [#Bibi]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 20th,2015

.. Bibi will likely be returned to power .

.. however , it is fairly clear that he has had his time in Israeli politics . He is likely to be serving his last term in office …

.. the question is what type of coalition :

.. [h/t — Breitbart.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post news ..

.. one , a narrow conservative coalition . It would not be all that stable , and would be vulnerable to blackmail by factions …

.. two , a grand coalition with Bibi as PM , but with labour providing the parliamentary strength , in numbers . this one would be much closer to a national overnment , especially if Bibi [and Herzog] have an attack on iran in mind . Any assault on Iran is going to draw in the U.S. , and they have to know that …

.. a ” grand coalition ” would also limit likud ‘ s policy manuveuring . In order to entice Labour , Likud would have to make some policy concessions . Some they would be able to make , others they would not be to threilled about making …

… Disgraceful …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 24th,2014

.. Canadian PM Steven Harper recently made a trip to Israel .

.. It made a big splash , as you might think , in the Canadian press , but it hardly made a peep down here , other than in the conservative media . I read about it , and it evidently was a honey …

.. however , Israeli Arab lawmakers in the Knesset were extraordinarily rude to the PM . Harper made an address to the Knesset , and the Arab MKs walked out during the speech ..

.. [h/t — the GatewayPundit]

.. either sit sit during the speech , or boycott it . Do not walk out during it , you pond scum …
