After six tortuous weeks of horse
trading, spins and hypocrisy,
The principal beneficiaries were Yesh Atid and Bayit Yehudi who set aside their major political differences and made a pact to negotiate jointly towards the formation of the government. They succeeded and thus foiled Binyamin Netanyahu’s efforts to play them against each other, ultimately obliging him to concede to their core demands.
The necessary legal documents were to be drawn up and signed on Thursday, leaving Netanyahu free to formally inform President Shimon Peres on Saturday night - the final day of the six weeks allocated to him - that he has mustered a Knesset majority. The coalition will comprise four parties: Likud-Beytenu (31 seats), Yesh Atid (19), Jewish Home (12) and Hatnua (6), for a total of 68 members in the 120-seat Knesset. Netanyahu’s Likud Beitenu holds seven portfolios including Defense which former chief of staff Moshe Yaalon takes over from Ehud Barak.

Karzai Spits at the US
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was greeted on his first visit to Afghanistan since taking office by suicide bombs, threats and Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s accusation that the US is colluding with the Taliban. Karzai said that those attacks, which together killed 19 people, aided US goals and accused US of holding peace talks with the radical Islamists and the bombs were in the “service of America.” (Hundreds of billions of US tax-dollars are wasted on building democracy in Afghanistan and forging a fake alliance. Just imagine the White House ‘outrage’ if Israeli Prime Minister would publicly announce that the US aiding and abetting, which is actually the truth, the enemies of Israel - the best ally the US ever had!)

End of Another Temporary Party of Traitors
Barak announced his retirement from politics before the last election, and the members of his Atzmaut (Independence) party, which he formed when he split from the Labor party, decided they will not be running either. (Good Riddance! Barak’s story is a clear example of the problems the political system of Israel has. When self-centered and psychological damaged people, who have no national pride or sense of national integrity, take over the country has only one way to go - into abyss!)
Secretary of State John “Swiftboat” Kerry gave praise to Muslim Brotherhood led Egypt for “their version of democracy” and released $250 million of American tax payer money into the Islamic regime’s hands. Giving aid to Egypt and Israel is making tensions grow stronger, fueling an arms race that could end in bloodshed. We’re aiding the future enemy.
An errant Hamas rocket probably killed the baby son of a BBC journalist in Gaza during the brief war between Hamas and Israel last November, according to a UN report into the incident. (There are no condemnations of Hamas from the ‘righteous’ anti-Semitic press and so-called human right organizations, but the usual silence!)
1. The IDF has received orders to dismantle the new communities of Ramat Migron and Oz Tzion by the beginning of next week - in preparation for the visit of US President Barack H. Obama. The communities are in the area of Ramallah, which Obama will be visiting on his visit to Israel. 2. Barack Obama invites Miss Israel Yityish Aynaw to official state dinner. (Obama’s visit is nothing but a photo opts and attempt to discourage Israel from destroying the Iranian nuclear program! And, he has no intention to free Pollard.)

The flight of hundreds of UN Disengagement and Observers Force (UNDOF) soldiers - Indian, Austrian and Filipino - in trucks and APCs from the Syrian side of Golan into Israel was in full swing early Monday, March 11. Many more UN troops are expected to make their way during the day to refuge in IDF camps across the border.
