    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has come charging out of the gate with his reelection campaign, fashioning himself as a tough leader but critics contend that the relative stability and security Netanyahu has achieved through his tough policies could be undermined by his failure to address other issues, including Palestinian statehood aspirations, economic woes, and rising tensions between Israel’s secular Jews and its rapidly expanding ultra-Orthodox minority.

    Ultra Orthodox minority in Israel is not expanding. It simply begins settling in more secular areas.

    The right wing will take the elections, with out a doubt.

    Down with Netanyahu. Israel needs a leader like king Hussein who understood Palestinian mentality & knew how to achieve a lasting peace from the Palestinians. And has ANYONE EVER heard a single Palestinian complaint about Black September?

    Netenyahu is likely to lead Israel into a disastrous war over Iran which could escalate into a wider war including Syria and the whole neighbourhood

    This could well destroy what's left of the western economy including Israels

    Just what NO-ONE needs

    your prediction is LUDICROUS------just what would Netanyahu have to DO to "lead Israel into a disastrous war with Iran"???????? threaten to 'wipe Iran off the map'?------or ----declare the "Iran is a cancer that must be removed'? or establish a large heavily armed militia for the sole purpose of inflicting terrorist acts upon Iran and institutions of interest to Iran abroad?

    how about placing a large fleet of ships in the Persian gulf-----and abduct a few Iranians and torture them to death in grossly obscene manner------would that do it?

    I am so pissed off with Netanyahu & his peace offerings, security fence & land concessions to Palestinians so they can remain in Israel to kill more of his Israeli citizens.

    If there is ever to be a lasting peace from the Palestinians, first this entire Zionist agenda has to go.
