Why I am Voting Likud

The Likud has achieved much over the last four years for settlements and the nation, and aside from his silly insistence on the two-state solution, Netanyahu has been a pretty good Prime Minister.

  1. I appreciate your article. Prime Minister Netanyahu has great COURAGE in the face of foreign pressures and puts Israel's case strongly. We cannot pander to the US. He has my vote, from afar.

  2. Very interesting article. If I were able to vote, I too would vote for the Likud, and probably for many of the same reasons. I also realize a vote for Netanyahu is a vote for someone that LOVES Israel and realizes its vulnerablity to terrorism and evil. I especially identified with the comment "one of the things that bothered me most in the U.S. was the lack of “togetherness". If it was bad when you left, it is now in a desperate and dangerous state of "no togetherness". Our current president has done all he can to DIVIDE the people and is succeeding at alarming speed. My vote in the last election obviously did not count. Israel has a great leader available who will honor his commitments. I am a Christian who loves Israel, prays for Israel… and as Israel goes…so goes the world. Shalom

Reshet Bet has released their latest election poll…

Moshe Kachlon (L) and Avigdor Liberman (R)

Liberman and Kachlon may merge right after elections – and the larger party will recommend Liberman for Prime Minister to the President.

Eli Yishai, member of the Shas party today, but tomorrow is another day.

25-year-old man threatened former Shas party head with violence.

Feiglin - Ani Yehudi

Feiglin decided he and the Likud party are better off if he fights on only one front, not two or three.

I’m sorry, but Naftali Bennett decided to dress up as an aging Tel Aviv Hipster and… apologize…

Shas takes a hit in the latest poll, and the coalition possibilities shift a bit with the changing numbers.

Yishai was whisked to a safe room by Knesset bodyguards after Deri’s supporters tried to attack him.

“Leftists don’t care about Arabs, settlers are the true Jews. Leftists warned me I will be the first in the gas chambers.”

The latest Knesset poll has Labor down a bit, and Likud moving up again.

Meretz wants to make sure that Eli Yishai will not be in the next Knesset.

Moshe Kahlon courts Michael Oren but rejects Rami Levi. Shas and Jewish Home divorces not yet final.

It appears that former Shas MK Eli Yishai is taking that next big step.

Livni’s unrepeatable gutter language shocked even the Left-wing panel members. “Is she on drugs?” asks Likud Minister Yisrael Katz.

The addition of the secular Dayan is another sign pointing to national religious Uri Ariel’s joining Haredi Eli Yishai.

After 10 years of marriage, with 2 children, the wife began an affair with her female boss.

Thank you to all our readers who responded and opened up their homes to residents from Israel’s south.

The Palestinian Authority will likely bid in September to become a UN “non-member observer state.” A document prepared by the PLO’s negotiations support unit, says both Israel and the U.S. have an arsenal of punitive measures at their disposal. It says the U.S. could close the PLO mission in Washington, suspend aid to the Palestinians or withhold contributions to any UN agency the Palestinians try to join. The Arab League last month gave Abbas its backing for a new General Assembly bid, but did not specifically recommend its timing.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will leave on Wednesday for a week-long trip to the Olympics in London, Poland, and Israel.

Contractors hired by the Defense Ministry are busy packing the contents of the houses slated for evacuation Tuesday. Some residents held a press conference and described their feelings. “We’re being removed against our will,” said one of the local women. “We’re doing it with a broken heart, but with our heads held high.”

The assembly of at least 2000 began by saying Slichot, led by Rabbi Yaakov Chanun, who is the baal tefilah at the Munkatch beit Midrash on the Yamim Noraim. The assembled repeated chapters of Tehilim, verse by verse, and sat down on the ground in mourning just as Jews do on the day of Tisha B’Av.

The ad claimed to offer a solution to emotional distress and offered to send a booklet to listeners who called in. The name of the booklet? “The Power to Change,” with a subheading, “He changed me.”Those who phoned in were asked to provide additional contact information and sent what turned out to be a missionary booklet that included Christian preaching urging faith in “that man.”
