Israeli Elections 2015, 5775, Prediction: Instability!

One doesn't have to be a great political pundit to predict political instability here (I will be home soon G-d willing) in Israel. The outgoing Likud government, Bibi's third, if I haven't lost track, lasted less than two years. The polls are showing that it is possible that either Likud or Labor-Livni are capable theoretically of forming a coalition.

Possible Netanyahu Phase 2: Likud (22), Bayit Yehudi (12), Kulanu (9), Shas (7), UTJ (7), Yisrael Beitenu (5), Yachad (4) =66
Possible Herzog Phase 2: Zionist Union (25), The Joint (Arab) List (12), Yesh Atid (12), Kulanu (9), Meretz (5) =63 (Jeremy)
If Netanyahu succeeds again, then the Left, media and politicians funded by the Americans again, will just repeat what they have been doing to weaken and harass him. And if the two-headed monster of Herzog and Livni succeed, their incompetence and pressure from the Right will make running the country much more difficult than their worst nightmares

All I can say is that hopefully this instability will be good for us and keep them, no matter who is Prime Minister from doing damage to the country, meaning destroying Jewish communities and homes

If we get a right-wing government we'll all be happy, that is until it starts implementing left-wing policies.
If we get a left-wing government with Arabs in the cabinet, well maybe that can be considered part of shilton yishmael preceding moshiach, or at the very least as ever it will prove to be incapable of carrying out expulsions as only the right seems to know how. So either way it's good, or bad, depending on how you look at the situation.

(Part of me is tempted to vote for an Arab party to push towards Moshiach, but as we're not supposed to do that (lidhok et hashaa) will probably vote Bayit Yehudi in the end).

Something stinks. Livni just gave up her powersharing as PM if Labor gets in. Is that rumor true of a Bibi/Herzog deal. Seems this way.

Shiloh, yes, I've had the news on since my return and don't like it and don't trust Bibi.
