    Final results from Israel's election have kept the Kadima party, led by Tzipi Livni, with a slight lead over Benyamin Netanyahu's Likud.

    The official results, released on Thursday after all votes were counted, gave Kadima 28 seats in the 120-member parliament and Likud 27 seats.

    These figures were in line with preliminary results released after Tuesday's election, which also gave most of the remaining seats to rightist parties.

    The majority of the remaining seats went to other parties of the right, with the hard-right Yisrael Beitenu of Avidgor Lieberman taking 15 and Labor slipped into fourth place with 13 seats.

    Israel's election commission released the final results after counting votes by soldiers, prisoners and diplomats, about 100,000 out of a total of 3.3 million cast.

    The additional votes did not change the allocation of seats in the parliament tallied after the election.

    Coalition race

    The results give both Livni and Netanyahu far less than the majority each would need to govern as the two are already hard at work trying to line up potential coalition partners.

    ....so... was that a FULL ARTICLE being posted?



    I'm waiting to see how much influence Bibi and that Lieberman fell has regardless of who "won" israels election. Those are a pair of dangerous men. Hopefully, Livni will temper their racism but, I'm betting, she will get caught up in their racist directives while trying to attract their supporters. Hopefully, Arabs won't get rounded up into camps and ironically purged from their homeland.

    There are good arguments for our two party system. This is the biggest one.

    I guess if those piece of shit Palestinians behave themselves, maybe they wont have to worry about being rounded up. In the US we put criminals in jail, so i dont see why we should feel bad for the criminals in Gaza either.

    Most of the citizens in Gaza are terrorists, which is why they gave their votes to a terrorist organization. Im sorry if i dont feel bad for them. Maybe it will be a strong message to the rest of the uncivilized world.

    uh, yea.. just like MOST of Germany's JEWS were sheisty bankers who invalidated their lives by helping Germany lose ww1, eh?

    :cuckoo:

    Face it, dude.. you are just as much of a racist as Lieberman. If you want to blame arabs then go for it. When you get tot he point that you are making excuses for concentration camps and final solutions then maybe you'll open your eyes. See you are the next ironic round of Nuremburg trials.

    No, that is NOT the case with the jews. Just because Palestinians are bad, doesnt mean jews have to be too. You do this thing where if someone questions the depraved moral values of Palestinians, you always want to make the comparison to jews in WWII Germany.

    To be clear, the jews in Germany during WW2 were innocent victims, and the Palestinians in Gaza 2009 are NOT innocent. Its not the answer you like to hear, but its the truth. They are bad people, and thats why the civilized world agrees with Israel, while at the same time they denounce the years of terrorist actions the Palestinians have been involved in.

    The sad part is, had the palis acted in a humane and noble manner, they would have recieved far more then they are going to get now from any peace agreement. Americans have, for many years, railed against China for its rule over Tibet, and had we been closer allies with China, like we are with Israel, we would have gotten far more traction. In the case of the palis, had they not been terrorists all these years, the american people would demand that Israel be split in half (though that wouldnt be fair either), but they dont, because everyone knows the palis are terrorists. Now, the best they can hope for is the tiny Gaza strip, but that will continue to be target practice for Israeli bombs, as long as they act like terrorists.

    I didnt say stereotypes are either good or bad, im just saying the jews were innocent people who didnt deserve what they got, while the Palestinians bring all their troubles upon themselves. They are terrorists.

    Yes, every jew was innocent of what the Nazis were saying about them. Every pali isnt guilty, but most are, because they elected a terrist group to lead them. Nothing else even needs to be said about the palis after you determine they elected terrorists.
