Too crazy for Israel

Posted by James Wolcott

For reasons known only to themselves, Israeli voters decided to ignore the rallying cry of Pajamas Media's chickaboom gal and pull the lever for Bibi.

The Independent (UK), that commie rag, breaks the bitter news:

"The exit poll results were a humiliation for Likud, which could now end up as the fourth biggest party. Former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who took over as the party's leader when Mr Sharon staged his sensational breakaway from the right wing party last November, had said he wanted at least 14 seats and there will be doubts over whether he can remain as leader."

But Netanyahu accepted defeat, humiliation, and the prospect of a long winter in the political wilderness with the grace of a gladiator dragging himself from the arena.

"In a direct rebuke to Mr Sharon, who is in a coma in a Jerusalem hospital, Mr Netanyahu said the party had already been damaged when 'the former head of the party left it, and left us a broken, shattered movement.' But he declared: 'We intend to continue along the path we have only just begun in order to ensure this movement is rehabilitated and takes its rightful place in the nation's leadership.'"

Blaming a man in a coma for your poor showing at the polls: classy.

Now they want the West Bank wall, which will not stop anything, but it's a step away from neverending war.
