Israeli Elections - Netanyahu loses grip
The Israeli elections have turned out to be a total game changer.
Left VS right is divided exactly 50-50 in terms of mandates.
Yair Lapid, a rising star in Israeli politics, has nailed it Obama-style.
Looks like he's currently turning out to be the strongest politician in Israeli politics as no coalition can be formed without his huge block.

Re: Israeli Elections - Netanyahu loses grip
I thought that 'jewish home' or somebody fairly right leaning was the big winner, gaining the most new seats.

Could you post a breakdown, seats taken and political position?

It was anticipated that the "Jewish Home" party will be a big winner, but their momentum fell significantly.

Here's the breakdown:

Total Mandates: 120

Likud-Beiteinu: 31
A joint list of Benjamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Liberman
Right wing

Yesh Atid: 19
Headed by Yair Lapid
Anti-orthodox platform
Center wing

Israeli Labor Party: 15
Headed by Shelly Yehimovitz
Social-democratic party
Left wing

Shas: 11
Sephardi religious Jews party
Right wing security-wise and left wing socially-wise

The Jewish Home: 11
Headed by Naphtali Benet
Religious Zionism party
Ultra right wing

United Torah Judaism: 7
Ultra Orthodox party
Ultra right wing

Hatnuah (the movement): 6
Headed by Tzipi Livni
Center

Meretz: 6
Headed by Zehava Gal-On
Social-democratic party
Ultra left wing

Raam-Taal: 5
Arab party
Anti-Israel-as-a-jewish-state party

Hadash: 4
Joint Arab-Jews party
Ultra left wing

Balad: 3
Arab party
Yet another anti-Israel-as-a-jewish-state party

Kadima: 2
Headed by Shaul Mofaz
Center

If you sum it all up, it comes down to this:
Right wing, including all religious parties: 60 mandates.
Left wing, including the Arab parties, and all central parties: 60 mandates.

Netanyahu will have a very tough time forming a coalition in this political ecosystem...

Re: Israeli Elections - Netanyahu loses grip
God this reminds me of Nov 6th last years when Obozo got a second term, I'm starting to get the same nauseating feeling !

If BiBi can't form a government and the left comes to power, Israel is going to be in some deep shit, especially with the muslim-in-chief at the WH !

Cheers. Jewish Home were the ones all for annexing the Palestinian territories ye? Will this new coalition get anywhere trying to build peace or is that not really an option with Netanyahu about?

I got the feeling you supported the left, but now you've confirmed it !

I bet you supported Obama as well ?

Why don't you move to Hollywood along with or other brothers who voted for the communist at the White House right now !

BiBi is the only one with enough guts to stand up to Obama and protect Israel's interests, if the left comes to power they will serve Israel to Obozo on a platter !
