I Must Admit...

I must admit that though I predicted that Bibi Netanyahu would not form a Right Wing Nationalist pro-Eretz Yisrael for Am Yisrael (The Land of Israel for the Children of Israel) government, I had thought that Kadima would be more amenable to being part of the coalition. In the end, Barak and what's left of the Labor Party grabbed the goodies Bibi was offering. Ben Gurion must be rolling in his grave so strongly, that if there's an earthquake in the south, you'll know why.

And if the earthquake is centered more in the Tel Aviv area, it'll be from Tsippi Livni's parents moving around in their graves all upset that their daughter's idea of "principles" is establishing an Arab state in the Land of Israel.

Placing principles above politics also has kept Kadima chairwoman Tzipi Livni out of power after she refused to buy coalition partners with budget allocations and Cabinet posts while demanding that all parties accept the creation of a PA state. (complete article)

I'm not bothered at all by the fact that the Ichud Le'umi isn't part of the coalition. It doesn't belong there. We need a political "conscience." We need politicians who don't twist and spin with the "wind." Last night young MK Gilad Erdan was on the news rationalizing why Bibi was doing the right thing. That performance deleted the good impression he had made at the Jerusalem Conference.

Moshe Feiglin did a terrible thing by telling pro-Land of Israel Israelis to vote Likud. Bibi is taking their votes to the Left. You'd think that Feiglin would have learned from Sharon's and the Likud's Disengagement, but he hasn't.

At the course I just took at Matan, we learned about the ancient Biblical prophets and the Israelite Kings of the times. Nothing's new, unfortunately, nothing at all.

so can we give livni some credit for sticking with her principles, unlike barak?

Yes, good point, a. If Barak had any principles or backbone, then Bibi would have had to make more Right deals. That's the real tragedy in the making.

Just proves again, what I've often said that Ehud Barak is the most dangerous politician. One shouldn't forget the rampant terrorism which began during his reign as Prime Minister.

There really is "nothing new under the sun". I've read some of Rav Avigdor Miller's books on, for lack of a better term, ancient Jewish history. Somehow reading the history in English made it easier for me to replace the names with the names of modern politicians. I could have been reading today's newspaper.
Eventually we'll get to the good prophecies, G-d willing soon.

Hadassa, the similarities are mind-boggling even to Jews for J, the Jews who worshipped Baal during the time of Achav.
