ISRAELI ELECTION RESULT

The wailing and knashing of teeth from the MSM and the left side of the political divide that accompanied Benjamin Netanyahu's right wing Likud Party's stunning victory in the Israeli General Election is a sight to behold.

I mean how dare the electorate defy the pollsters who confidently predicated a win for Isaac Hertzog's centre-left Zionist Union.

One thing for certain.   President Obama's snubbing of Netanyahu on his recent visit to the US where he addressed a joint sitting of Congress backfired big time and probably contributed to Netanyahu's victory.    I suspect that many Israeli voters took the view that if Obama opposed it, that was sufficient reason to vote for it ... such is the lack of respect that attaches to Obama's lame duck Administration's foreign policy.

What a churlish prick!

Obama pointedly failed to congratulate Netanyahu on his victory.

I don't think 20-something percent really counts as a "victory."

Also, meh. Caring about who wins Israeli elections is like, in earlier times, caring about who won Apartheid-era South African elections - it kind of misses the point.

An increase from 24 to 30 seats looks like a pretty good victory to me. The Greens would be envious, don't you think?

PM ... 20 (read 25% actually) really does count for something in the Israeli scheme of things.

No electorate MPs and everything based on proportionality with ten Parties making it over the 3.25% threshold.

So you dismiss the democratic result in Israel in Israel do you? I guess it's the fact that Israel stands up for what it truly believes knowing that the Islamist world is committed to Holocaust #2 that has you confused. I mean, how dare 'they' not submit 'peacefully' to the the gas chambers 2015 style.

The anti Israeli brigade has much to answer for.

It is an enduring mystery why so many oppose Israel when it is the nearest to a true democracy in the land from The Mediterranean to the Khyber pass yet they are portrayed as an illegal Government.
Sheesh Palestinian Arabs are elected to the Knesset while all those fucking towelheads from the Med to the Khyber have as a basic political aim to slaughter every last Jew.
Having been there over 3000 years ago before the Romans, the Sultans, the Crusaders, the Ottomans, the French and the British, to suggest they have no rights is Gilbert and Sullivan.

It's not for me to endorse or dismiss it. I just lack interest in hearing who a bunch of White colonists have selected amongst themselves to oversee the preservation of their racist state. Never cared who was running Apartheid South Africa for the same reason.

PM .... "colonists" ... that's interesting, I thought the Jews were there first up.

Israel was created by settlers mostly from eastern Europe within living memory. "Colonists" is a reasonable description.

PM ... read the bible young fella and learn.

So Milt does that suggest all who came after the first canoe and possibly even those were colonists.

Even if we were to treat the blather contained in the Bible as fact, people from eastern Europe aren't mentioned in it.

So Milt does that suggest all who came after the first canoe and possibly even those were colonists.

No, it suggests the White settlers who came here and took the place off the Maori were colonists. Would you dispute that?

The Veteran said...

Milt ... thank you for the history lesson.

For myself I have to say I was a little surprised to learn that the Jews weren't 'tangata whenua' in what is now Israel.

Psycho Milt said...

You've no business being surprised. Pretty much all the prime ministers of Israel have been White people - eastern Europeans or the children of eastern Europeans. It's not exactly a closely-guarded secret.

Isn't that the country's whose spooks steal our passports?

Noel ... yep, along with the then USSR and. I suspect, a number of other countries.

That's what spy agencies do.

You're not so naive as to think otherwise are you?

Israel elects its own government.

Psycho Milt doesn't care but is still unhappy.

Yawn
