Reuven Rivlin has been selected

Netanyahu reportedly opposed Rivlin aggressively. He spent weeks trying to delay the election and recruit candidates to run against Rivlin. At one point he tried to recruit Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel, who is not even an Israeli citizen. (One traitor, Peres, is out! Next step is to get remove the wimp, Netanyahu, from Likud leadership. Why is it that leader of Likud, Benjamin Netanyahu, is more comfortable with political enemies, Shimon Peres, than the members of his own party?)

Economy Minister and Jewish Home chairman Naftali Bennett said that the blame on the Hamas-Fatah unity government should not be placed on Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, but rather on the Palestinian Arab people.
“The anger against Abbas over the Fatah-Hamas unity government is misplaced The problem is not Abbas. Rather, it is the Palestinian public that does not accept the State of Israel,” wrote Bennett on his Facebook page.
“How do I know this? In the only free elections that have ever been held, Hamas won 76 seats out of 132. Clear majority! Fatah (another terrorist organization) won 48 seats,” he pointed out.
“This means the majority of the Palestinian public voted for an anti-Jewish terrorist movement that aims to destroy Israel through Jihad.”
“So what do we do about it? We get stronger, and we raise our heads up high. We apply Israeli sovereignty over the territory of our country. We will continue to build our magnificent country,” wrote Bennett. (But Bennett, as many half-way Zionists, is delusional thinking that “there will be new generations on the other side who hopefully will choose a path other than terror.”)

Rooted in God’s command given to Moses at Sinai, agricultural fields, vineyards and orchards are to be worked and harvested for six years, but in the seventh year they are to be allowed to “rest and lie fallow, that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave, the beasts of the field may eat.”

A former Hamas government spokesman revealed on Sunday that Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has said in private meetings he is lying in public statements to "trick the Americans."
The spokesman, Ihab al-Ghussein, wrote on Facebook that "behind closed doors," Abbas had said "when I go out and say that the government is my government and it recognizes 'Israel' and so on, fine - these words are meant to trick the Americans."
"Guys, let me (continue) saying what I say to the media. Those words are meant for the Americans and the occupation (i.e., Israel), not for you. What's important is what we agree on among ourselves... Don't harp on everything I tell the media, forget about the statements in the media," Abbas told Hamas, according to Ihab al-Ghussein...
Abbas has insisted to the US that the new unity government would be controlled by him, and be based on what he called "the four Palestinian principles": recognizing Israel, recognizing the terms of international agreements, and the explicit rejection of violence and terrorism. (As if Abbas have plans to do or has done any of this.)
Apparently his statements worked: the American administration said last Monday that it would "work with" the new unity government, claiming it did not include Hamas members.
Despite the claim, three Hamas-backed ministers were sworn in to the unity government from Gaza via video feed. Further, Hamas continues to be adamant over its full control of the government, and said it would be subject to their approval before being established. (Abbas has not invented this tactic of lies. It was commonly used by his predecessor, Yasser Arafat. The success of this policy is not due to it ‘smartness’, but to the willingness of the White House and its successive presidents to pretend that they believe in the lies of Arab states and fake Palestinians!)
