Conservative Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has won reelection (i.e., his party has retained enough seats), after recent polls showed him trailing. Good news or bad news?
I don't know how you could not vote for him.
If you honestly think this is good you're an idiot and have no idea what he advocates for and simply believe "we should support Israel" Libertarians on this app are a disgrace
Netanyahu is a better American than Obama
It is a great for those who love Israel. It is a bad for those who love Iran, Syria, ISIS, terrorism, terrorists, etc.,as does President Obama. It is difficult for President Obama to negotiate with someone so intelligent & accomplished as Netanyahu.
Good for him, bad for folks that polls mean anything
He's not a Hitler. The Palestinians most assuredly want Israel gone.
That's because they've had their land stolen and have been raped and murdered by the jew war machine. Just look at the map from 1947 to today...yeah real fair. I'd cater to them as well.
Yeah nevermind that they were butchered out of the area a thousand years before...
Murder, you do realize Israel took those lands from countries that invaded with the intent to commit genocide right? Oh, sorry, facts don't matter to people like you.
AtlantaJones does that mean that the Native Americans can come back after thousands of years to the US and claim it's their land, occupy it, and butcher the Americans?!
MericaRules do you realize that Israel was the invader and the country who committed genocides to the Arabs who lived in Palestine?! The Arab countries were acting in self defense. You should learn some history my friend.
Lol I need to to learn eh? So the Jews invaded the Ottoman Empire did they? Confused? The OE had controlled Palestine for hundreds of years. The current "Palestinians" we're only the latest group of nomadic groups to live there along with...
...invading Muslims who had taken it by conquest from the last owner. England then took ownership of what we call the Middle East. The zionists then began campaigning to be allowed to return to the land they owned long long before the...
...current inhabitants. England left it to the UN and US which split Palestine between, what now we're called, Palestinians and the Jews. Were there radical zionists? Yes but there were radical Palestinians as well so the books are balanced...
...After the new nations were established, Israel made no move against Palestine. Instead, every single bordering Arab nation invaded and were defeated. Israel then took Palestine over as a spoil of war. This undoubtedly had some vengeance...
....as a motivation, but the far larger reason was to establish defensible borders. The previous arrangement was obviously made by someone who knew nothing of creating nations properly. From that point on, Israel has been invaded multiple times...
...by nations attempting genocide. The Palestinians all either stood by and watched it or helped the invaders. This lead to the state of animosity about a decade or two ago. The Palestinians then took up arms and began more actively...
...pursuing terrorism and other violent activities. They then compounded their crimes by aligning with a brutal terrorist organization. This have we arrived at the current state of affairs.
Imurder probably believes that the Palestinians r the good guys bcuz instead of raping women (which they would if they could) they bomb bus stations and shoot missiles at civilians just to make a point and then cry when Israel defends itself
Modern day Hitler. Slowly murdering off the Palestinians in the name a zion.
He's a Great leader! Make him the Goddamn president of the US! He might actually help our debt and fix everything bush and bummer broke. He has a spine unlike those who wish to lay down in the face of terror.
All he does is beg for handouts from us. Some leader. Please can you fight our wars for us? Can we have more money for our military? Please America, please, sir.
More welfare for Israel. It never ends.
It's AWESOME!!!! I literally freaked out when I got the alert on my iPhone!!!!
The radical Muslim extremists have no more relation to true Islam than the KKK does to true Christianity!!!
Actually, you are mistaken. Islam calls for violence. There are around 109 verses in the Quran that call for violence, and then there is still the Hadith to go through. Christianity, on the other hand, calls for peace, love, and respect.
I'm not saying that you are stupid or anything, but you should study Islam itself before you make assumptions about it, and the same goes for Christianity.
Another misinformed jew...
The Bible also calls for violence just as much as the Quran does, but most do not do it. Don't go saying Islam is inherently violent because Christianity is just as much so, if you want to argue that.
The Old Testament has old Jewish laws, but they don't apply to Christians. The laws were used for the early civilizations, and those harsh laws were usually necessary in order to protect their civilization. You should actually study Christianity.
The rules of Islam were made to defend the religion when it was new and under threat.
That is ridiculous. Muhammad was under attack. He was attacking cities such as Medina. He wanted to destroy everything that he didn't agree with. He was a barbarous, sex-crazed pedophile who created a false religion to gain power.
Bad. He ignores Israel's internal issues in favor of talking about warring with Iran. And he has alienated the Israeli youth because of it.
Good? No! It's great news. I'm doing my happy dance.
Recent polls showed him trailing? Now the American media is trying to manipulate Israel's elections.
Our media wants to demonize him, because he's 1) conservative right and can actually run a country 2) he has a spine and a tough leader. Our media is retarded.
In the whole of the Middle East, only 1.6 Million Arabs have complete political and religious freedom. All of them live in one Jewish state.
More zionist propaganda... Lebanon is an Arab country where citizens have their full political and religious rights, and there are more Arab countries who do the same. If you want to look for them, just turn off FAUX News and do some research, sheep!
And if you think Arabs in Israel have their full rights and aren't discriminated, you're a total delusional and ignorant fool.
If Obama hates you must follow?
Its a poke in the eye to our messiah, the anointed one, the savior of the universe, the Nobel peace prize recipient and the greatest leader in the whole wide world, Obama.
~i love it.
Good to see the DNC tricks don't work there.
He is a bad guy
and which kool-aide flavor is your favorite.
Isn't it nice that they have voter ID in Israel. We would be wise to do the same. Then we would have government by the people, for the people, rather than government by some people. You know them. The ones that vote fast, often and for the dead.
He is an awful man and a bigot. He despises America and isn't a Christian.
I'm sorry, were you expecting the leader of Israel to be Christian?
Not everyone's a Christian fyi.
Lol neither is obummer
Obama is a Christian and has been his entire life. Do you see his wife wearing a burka, hijab, or niqab? There's your answer
This is excellent news for Israel. If only America had a strong leader like him, the world would be in a better place. Anyone who says no is a liberal loon. Besides it's not like any of you live there so what the hell do you care?
Israel has universal health care and a very liberal abortion policy! So, tell me again why Republicans love Netanyahu?
He has a spine and can run a fucking country without forcing everyone to submit
I think it's good for Israel (I'm not a good authority on this because I don't follow Israeli politics that closely) but it's bad for the international community. However I suppose you could argue that it's bad that while Netanyahu is a strong
political leader, his stubborn ways could ultimately be bad for Israel.
Someone should make a pros and cons list.
Country Boy: What exactly has Obama tried to get you to submit to? I don't want bumper sticker generalities I want specifics.
Sorry talltree88, I don't think you meant to post here but good luck with whatever you're debating.
Israel needs a tough leader with so many enemies.
I love how the election of a war mongering, nationalistic, imperialist is "Good" for the world.
He wants to go to war with the second largest country in the Middle East. What is wrong with you people?
Yes he does because they threaten Israel greatly. Unfortunately Obama wouldn't support them and they would lose.
Obama's been continuing to siphon a third of our foreign aid to Israel. They might disagree about strategy and he was probably rooting against BN, but he's always been pro-Israel.
Imperialist? THAT he is not. Your commie leanings are showing.
Obama is not pro Israel. Wow
Does wanting a two state solution automatically make one an enemy of Israel?
Occupying Palestine? That is the definition of an imperialist.
Stating a fact doesn't make me a communist. Funny how that is used as an insult. I don't find it insulting. If sharing whatever I can with people is bad, then Jesus was horrible.
Yes. Wanting a 2 state solution when the Palestinians do not want a 2 state solution makes you idiotic. Israel has tried, the PLO has not.
So...pushing for 2 state IS against the existence of Israel.
So Netanyahu is an enemy of Israel now? I don't think so ...
First off, There has never been a country Palestine or even a nationality! Israel has been attacked in three war and gave back 90% of what they won and hold two areas as buffer. That is not Imperialism.
Palestine is real. Here it is. You can ask Netanyahu. He'll show you on the map.
htcbump what a big load of bullshit! There was never a country called Israel before 1948, Palestine existed since thousands of year, check maps from about 1020 B.C.
Also, Israel is still occupying more Palestinian lands & building more illegal settlements. With every war, Israel occupied more, without returning them to the Palestinians. Look at the 1967 UN division map, & you'll see how much Israel is occupying.
Ozzy, you brainwashed sheep, Israel has never tried. While the peace talks between Israel and the PLO about the existence of 2 states, Israel was occupying more Palestinian lands to build more illegal settlements.Turn off FOX News & do some research!
Salon: take your anti Semitic and anti Israel hate somewhere else.
If the Palestinians had EVER wanted a 2 state solution, it would have happened.
Good news for Netanyahu. Bad news for Obama. Good news for the U.S. Bad news for Iran.
Lmao! All the Middle Eastern respondents said "bad news." Typical anti-Jewish racists.
There called democrats
Being Democrat does not make you anti-Israel or anti-Semitic. Democrats don't dislike Israel, but rather they dislike the lack of commitment to peace and resolution on Netanyahu's part.
Bull you want a nuke in Iranian hands so you can cut our nuts and jews nuts off. Save time rebuild your socialist gas chambers throw Americans and Israel in. Bet you get more than eight mill this time. Heil Obama!! Till your satisfied.
Wait a minute...who launch the 3000 missiles into Israel? Should he just twiddle his thumbs and call it work place violence?
Netanyahu says Israel doesn't need the U.S. Well, then he can give back the $3 Billion a year we give them! Now, where is the cry for deficit reduction?
The power of chuck Norris
Depends on who you ask. Most Iranians, I imagine, would say "bad news."
Meanwhile, Hamas is all like "Jihad is finally here! Yay!!!"
The app asked You.
Democrats support Israel....as long as their leader doesn't step on Obama's toes lol. Democrats need to grow up.
The new Republican majority gives the Israeli Prime Minister 28 standing ovations! Yet, you question Pres. Obama's love of this country!
The ugly truth: 1. The Holocaust really occurred. 2. The Holocaust was a truly horrible page in human history. 3. The Holocaust does not give the Israelis the right to do whatever they want for the rest of history.
All they want to do is live in peace and defend their country
Ah career politicians. Let's see how many more Palestinians he'll murder for his next reign of terror.
Lmao. You are crazy and insanely misinformed. I need you to answer 1 simple question. You do know that if Palestinians stopped fighting tomorrow, there would be peace, but if Israel stops fighting, it will be slaughter, right?
I upset a Jew. I get a gold star!
Murder, you have noticed who wants nukes, genocide, deportation etc correct? Hamas and Iran. Guess who has had nukes for decades? Israel. Yet they refuse to launch a single one. They could wipe out every middle eastern enemy with the push...
...of a button yet they don't. They could wipe the Palestinian nation off the face of the earth with their Air Force alone, yet they don't. Tell me again who is the genocidal side. Btw I'm an atheist (:
He's actually pretty good but because you just had to add the conservative aspect in there. Some people vote bad. Its not even our country, you don't know how best to handle things there... Stop being so 1 dimensional people.
Obviously BO wants Iran to have nukes. A weak leader in Israel would just encourage the process. If it comes to it Israel will and should make a preemptive strike.
I've nicknamed him "nuts and yahoo" because he's nuts and a yahoo
Not as nuts as DumbO....
Netanyahu has shown he is the real leader of the free world. Is there any way we can trade Obama for him?
Yes. It's called transfer of citizenship. I'll get you the links and documentation to get you on your way ASAP.
Seeing as you're a republican, you're probably not an American Jew so it will be a bit harder for you here's the official words:
"The case is very much otherwise for the non-Jews. You shall need to apply for business immigration if you are really
keen to moving into the promised land for those who escaped from the horrors of Holocaust. Getting a job here is another way to answer your question on how to move to Israel. However, you shall be required to spend many
years working in the country before you can become eligible for settling here permanently. Even after you become eligible, the laws of immigration are not as lax as in Canada or US."
If you need any moving services, I will personally volunteer to help you or any republican out there to start packing and move to a leadership that represents you. I do it for democracy and because I'm a good person. Wish you safe travels! 🇺🇸
Come on now, Rot.. Nobody had ever accused you of being a good person. 😂
Luckily Obama will be gone in 22 months and we won't have to deal with him anymore. You will still need to deal with Netanyahu though....
No one has immigration laws as lax as the U.S.,
I would like Netanyahu if he were better trained. Lapdogs shouldn't bark when their owners have guests over.
Who exactly is the owner and who are the guests, you racist pig?
Who you think? The fact that Netanyahu can think he can shape our foreign policy is insulting. We're the superpower, not Israel. It's more of a matter power than race.
Umm you realize that THEY will be attacked before us right? They aren't allowed to worry about their own survival?
"Our foreign policy" by definition involves other countries.
The whole world is aware of our idiot in charge, even you may wise .
I don't care what country we're speaking of, and I'll include Palestine. I'm a big fan of The People making their voices heard, IN SPITE of what any other country says or 'hopes' they do, and whatever direction pollsters would attempt to steer them.
For years now, we've been told if you oppose Obama, it's because of racism. So it's safe to say all you Netanyahu haters are Anti Semitic! Isn't that how this works?
That would be fine if the republican media wasn't the ones who claimed that obama haters are called racist in order to victimize themselves.
It's not just the republican media. I've been told dozens of times by liberals that the reason I hate obama is because he's black.
Rota, it wasn't FOX that told me I was racist, it was the radical left...pretty much all Democrats.
I do, and always will support Israel! It's just Netanyahu who's cowboy diplomacy is just as destructive now as George W.'s was during his reign of bombastic Imperialism.
So much for peace
yea, so much for the destination of Israel.
Peace? Like that's ever gonna happen.
You would have to get Palestinians to stop trying to kill Jews for peace to happen. Bibi doesn't really have that power....
I am just as delighted as if Marine Le Pen had been elected President in France. Same reliance on xenophobia, fear, demagogy, and generally on ethically questionable tactics to get what they want. Only Le Pen partisans often also are antisemites.
Israel = Good, Netanyahu = Bad
Netanyahu doesn't care about making peace and unfortunately seems content with ongoing war and the denial of Palestinians' self governance in their regions, which are a also being swallowed under Netanyahu (not Israeli) policies.
Youse guys are fun, try to remember you live in the USA, Israel is another country.
Jvc, what does that have to do with it?
Do you not care nothing about what happens in the Middle East?
I am aware of unrest in the Mid East but I do not believe showing weakness works. Ugh
Okay, why then does Israel have so much power and say in ours? I thought we were partners. Or is this a one sided relationship?
you liberals can't remember what happened yesterday, that's from being brain dead I guess. It's radical Muslims that are trying to destroy Israel and have stated so many many time. Now write that down for later reference so I won't have to repeat it.
1. Accepting Palestinian existence is not a showing of weakness.
2. "Radical Islamic" groups are not actually Islamic. That is a mislabeling by the media.
3. Most Democrats support Israel and are not brain dead as you say.
I'm curious, how do you talk from both sides of your mouth?
points made. Do you deny that "radical Islamist" want to destroy Israel & do they not have the right to defend their very existence?
"Radical Islamists are not actually islamic."
Are you kidding, or just a fucking moron?
There are terror groups that pledge and many unfortunately are supported by a lot of Palestinians. I support Israel and the existence of a Palestinian state.
The only way for terror groups to defend their existence is to stop doing what they do.
TXNationalist, you can call those terror groups Radically Islamic so long as you accept that the KKK and Westboro are radical Christian groups. Not so willing to do it now, are you? They don't represent the religions they claim to be. It's a lie.
It is what they call themselves so that is their name, if you call yourself John shouldn't others call you John?
Israel is another country sucking off our financial and military tits
and whose fault is that? How about America quit giving away money to other countries, buying their loyalty, right! I would rather Israel than some God forsaken African country.
Westboro is a known radical Christian group, but the KKK is just racist and doesn't actually have any Biblical muscle to stand on like the Radical Islamists do with their Quran. They pray to Allah 5 times a day, who are u to say they aren't Islamic?
Woopert...I am beginning to believe you are brain dead. Palestine lobbed 3000 missiles into Israel and started the last war. They got arms from Iran. Stay off the kool aid.
Woopert....also read history. Islam has been the aggressor since five years after Mohammed dies. Read the Pew (liberal) report on islam. Get educated!
I don't support Hamas and its rocket firing activities on Israeli civilian areas. You are not seeing the point. You can still support Israel while also supporting the right to Palestinian self determination.
I have already read Pew Research's data.
How are libertarians approving this? The guy pledged for no Palestinian state. Idk somethins up here
No idea how republicans support it either. Isn't this the guy that caused the Gazan Christian community to suffer heavy casualties every time?
That's like the only demographic they only care about so I was shocked to see them not get mad at israel.
The Libertarians on this app don't actually coincide with real Libertarian policies. It's weird.
They picked a leader in a free and open election. Some may approve for that reason.
That's why I approved. I even put up a poll congratulating netanyahu and democrats agreed 74%.
In 2008, a conspiracy theory emerged that Hugo Chavez was financing Obama and was trying to turn america into a commie nation.
I see that theory has re-emerged with the same amount of proof as the right wing claims Obama is doing it to Israel.😂
The busing in of Minorities claims, being fined for forging a video of your opposition, etc are also old republican tactics of 2008/2012.
Never the less, congrats on your victory Netanyahu. Israel spoke democratically.
Total bummer. Yesterday at this time it was looking like fairness and decency would have a chance, but oh well.
libertarians be lying this poll. tis awful. at last this idiot will help us win ww3
Great news. He's a great man and a great leader. And kind of a hunk too.
It Israelis are willing to put up with a potentially costly war with Iran, then this is great news.
Netanyahu is just itching for a war with Iran, which of course he would expect the United States to lead.
If what you say is true, what is he waiting for?
He wants US blood to bear most of the burden.
Well we all know that ain't gonna happen while Obummer is in office. So I repeat my question...
Obama only has another year left.
So what's the point of your question?
brutus said BiBi wanted to go to war with Iran so I ask what was he waiting for, pay attention Reid.
Isn't it obvious? He is waiting for Obama to leave office and is hoping for a Neoconservative idiot to succeed him so he can trick him into invading Iran on Israel's behalf.
I am glad you are so confident the next president will be a Republican, I'm with you, go conservatives, YEA!!!!!!
Wierd how there was a huge outcry against him and suddenly he wins? He must have learned a thing or two from Putin.
