    A couple of the site's anti-Israel types will be disappointed.

    Well, he dissolved his coalition government in Dec and called for a poll midway through his term expecting to come out stronger but it looks like he's weaker now.

    Elections in Israel: Netanyahu Wins Election But Emerges Weaker

    "....King Bibi, as he has been dubbed by the media, has lost his election gamble. Netanyahu's campaign slogan had been "a strong leader for a strong nation," but instead he suffered a setback. Now he is in a weaker position as he works to build a coalition to govern the country.

    Netanyahu called for early elections expecting an easy victory that would cement his power for years, he recently suggested privately. Instead the results have put him in a bind...."

    I'm sure Bibi is disappointed; bet he wishes he had left well enough alone.

    Netanyahu is still leader of the free world by a wide margin.

    Obamas gamble back fired in his face. I'm glad that Netanyahu was reelected. We need a modern day Churchill to offsets Obama's Neville Chamberlain.

    How in the world does this woman think this is any kind of a setback for Bibi?"

    So what? There wasn't even a coalition between these two parties in 2009. YB allied with Likud in 2013 and together they won 31 seats, 20 Likud. That coalition did fall through but this "reporter" knows a little about spin doctors herself.

    Israeli's discovered a sad truth. Vote for the man backed by Obama and they will be as bad off as Americans. I think they chose, "wisely!"
