Happy Now?

Netanyahu: No Preconditions for Peace Negotiations
Avraham Zuroff, 11 Iyyar 5769/May 5, 2009

(IsraelNN.com) Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday night addressed delegates to the pro-Israel AIPAC convention currently taking place in Washington, D.C. Netanyahu related to several main points in his address, which was broadcast by satellite from Israel. Most prominent was his call for negotiations with Palestinian Authority (PA) leaders.

“We are prepared to resume peace negotiations without any delay or any preconditions. The sooner, the better,” he stated. (Read more...)


Happy now? Yes, I'm addressing YOU, all of you so-called, "right-wing," religious Jews, and assorted "settlers," who wanted to strengthen Netanyahu with their vote for the Likud.

Netanyahu has turned out to be nothing more than one of Shimon Peres's puppets.


"You voted for Netanyahu, and got Peres."

Would a few extra National Union mandates have helped? Who knows? Probably not.

But they would have sent an important message to the world and to a Netanyahu government, or would have been a strong oposition to a Livni government. And those idiotic Jewish Home Party MK's might have come crawing back, begging for forgiveness (Nah! Probably not).

So, nu? Are you happy now?

You should have seen a bunch of Bloggers at the Nefesh Be'Nefesh Blogger's Conference in Jeursalem last August. Most of them were almost worshipping Netanyahu while he delivered his speech.
And I would say that those Bloggers were right - wing. His beloved voters.

Miriam,

Don't even getting me started on that Bloggers' Conference.

You're absolutely right about those "right wingers." We have an very fancy expression in So. California {ie. the area around Hollywood}. It's called being starstruck, and it's silly behavior.

Bibi was just the icing on a very badly made cake.

That Foreign Ministry rep. was worse, though.

I didn't go.

I'm thinking of planning an alternative conference, or planning something.

Stay tuned.

a few less Likud mandates, with a few more NU mandates would have meant a Livni government. and we would be worse off. And NU would still have no influence then either.

I still see no alternative

I believe that to differentiate himself from Livni, Netanyahu would have put up road blocks to any of her initiatives at every turn.

Upon Livni's fall, if a reconstituted Netanyahu gov't would have gone back on his hawkish stance, we would then go to new elections.

If nothing else, we would have Detante.

Self-serving Bibi would see the writing on the wall, and do what that people want, or face defeat.

If he has too much on him, forcing him to do Peres's bidding, then the process will repeat until we have a leader emerge without anything on him,...that is with the assumption that the system would be allowed to operate naturally.

Personally, though, I don't see ge'ulah shlemah coming via the Kenesseth any time soon.

I think that Bibi would have been better in the opposition fighting a weakened Livni. And if Feiglin had only left the Likud and joined Ichud Le'umi, Bibi's polls would have shown that he had no support and maybe he would have realized what Lieberman did, that the big voter potentional is from the right. Blame Feiglin.

Miriam, I was at the jblogger convention and my report about him was that he was impressive but mistaken. What shocked me were the people who liked the Foreign Ministry presentation, which was a total bore. Good thing I brought my crocheting.

My plans for the next convention are developing....

Does the word "infiltration" mean anything to anyone?

Any word on the details? Or is it still too soon?

Stay tuned.
