Secure America Now is the organization behind the thirty second ad which shows Netanyahu talking about the over-arching foreign policy issue of our time.
There's only one bit of good news for the Romney campaign in the all-important swing state polls this weekend.
Joining Romney in the announcement of this new coalition were House Majority leader Eric Cantor and former US Senator Norm Coleman from Minnesota, two out of a short list of Honorary Chairmen. In the announcement itself there was one concrete pledge made. Coleman said that, if elected, Mitt Romney pledged he would make his first foreign trip as president to Jerusalem.
JERUSALEM – Despite public displays of support for Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from presumed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who recently visited Israel, several local polls show that the Israeli leader is rapidly losing support among his own Likud Party voters. Many of those surveyed believe that his meandering political adventures, as well as his fiscal and social measures, are unfairly burdening the middle class.
Journalist and Television host turned premier wannabe Yair Lapid's party's name, "Yesh Atid" ("There's a Future"), was a last minute fix. It turned out its original name had already been taken, several times, actually. At least one man's future will be secure in the new Yesh Atid movement: Founder Yair Lapid. The new party rules clearly state that he may not be removed from office until 2020.
JERUSALEM – Prime Minister Netanyahu, faced with the unlikelihood of his coalition government passing a new law to end haredi military draft deferment or ratifying the 2013 state budget with its austerity measures that affect nearly every government ministry controlled by coalition partners, will call for new elections on his return to the Knesset next week after sitting shiva for his father.
In the wake of comments made yesterday by FM Avigdor Liberman, in which he suggested that Yisrael Beytenu may withdraw from the government if it fails to implement an alternative to the Tal Law, PM Binyamin Netanyahu said he refused to be "a victim of extortion by coalition partners."
French National Front leader Marine Le Pen has been slipping in the polls ahead of the April 22 first-round vote, placing fourth President Nicolas Sarkozy and two other candidates. And so, to boost her ratings, she's been doing whatever she can, including pick the very Jewish sounding Goldman Sachs, as her target.
Out of 95 thousand registered Kadima party members, only 40% voted by 10 p.m., when the polls closed. It was rumored that left-leaning Haim Ramon was planning to resign as Chair of the Kadima Council. Along with the Mofaz win, this may suggest that the party is moving to the right. It may also mean that Kadima could not be taken for granted as partnering with the left on issues such as religious vs. secular tensions.
Al-Ahram reports that the Supreme Administrative Court (SAC) on Monday referred several articles of the law governing parliamentary polls to the State Council, the...
The common lament from the smugly high-minded is that the media’s fascination with polls gives too much weight to the horse race aspect of a campaign, at the expense of the important and weighty discussions of policy for which voters presumably hunger. The Monitor says: Give us more of the horse race!
WASHINGTON – Former speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, all but counted out last summer when his frustrated campaign team abandoned him, has come back from the political dead to pull ahead of Mitt Romney in the polls.
WASHINGTON - Barack Obama has hit a wall of Jewish indecision.
President Bush, writes Graydon Carter, paranoiac editor of Vanity Fair, the magazine that strives mightily to be taken seriously while championing celebrity narcissism and mindless titillation (“Nicole Kidman Bares All,” trills the cover of the current issue, thick as always with ads for perfume, lingerie and high-priced clothes and toys for high-income yuppies and those who aspire to be), “has taken away our civil liberties.”
