Israeli Elections Bring out the Worst in Liberals

Israeli elections are complicated and it remains for Bibi Netanyahu to form a government, but it appears certain at this point that he has prevailed in the Israel elections. If anything, Israel has demonstrated to the world that it is indeed a democracy-quite unlike its hostile neighbors.

And shame on President Obama and his prostituted State Department for trying to directly swing this election to Netanyahu’s opponent. Not only did Team Obama send their operatives to Israel to work with that One Voice/ V-15 group to try and defeat Netanyahu, but the State Department gave them funding, which they used among other things to bus in Arabs and Bedouins to the polls.

Obama-vs-Israel-II-280x230Now, Obama is acting like a spoiled child who has yet to even congratulate Netanyahu. The White House says that Obama plans to call in the next couple of days. It should be called a concession call rather than a congratulatory call.

To make matters even sadder, the American media (with the notable exception of Fox News) is acting as if a dark cloud has settled over the Middle East with Netanyahu’s victory. Maybe they haven’t noted the dark clouds hanging over the Arab world. The media is upset that the election spells doom for Obama and Kerry’s effort to bring about that Big Peace that would include a Palestinian state.

Netanyahu may not be perfect, but he is the closest thing to a Winston Churchill that the world has right now. He, President El-Sisi of Egypt, and King Abdullah of Jordan seem to be the only ones holding the world up at this time. Meanwhile, Europe has no leader of any stature, and we have Obama-worse than nobody.

So now it is left for John Kerry, “ably” assisted by the Baroness Lady Catherine Ashton of the EU to endure the insults of the Iranians as they beg them to make a deal that will bring Peace in our Time and Nobel peace prizes all around. Unless, of course, Israel spoils the party by attacking the Iranian nuke sites.
