    Actually, a comparison with Obama might be more appropriate. A major point in Obama's campaign was the 2002 speech he made before a small anti war group in which he opposed going to war in Iraq, and Netanyahu's campaign is based in large part on his opposition to the withdrawal from Gaza and his prediction that Israel will be barraged with rocket fire if it did withdraw.

    The problem is the alternatives. Livni? She isn't what they need now. I think, perhaps, Netanyahu has the street cred to make a deal that no one else would have. (kind of like Nixon opening China). Plus, he'll shut down Hamas like Egypt, Jordan and Fatah (and the EU and the U.S.) want him to. Livni won't and a lot of Israeli's are tired of living in bomb shelters.

    bibi doesn't have the balls to do anything more than rattle a sabre and hope that the US is watching. Attacking a nation that will fight back is a LOT different than killing off some ghetto arab refugees from the safety of 20k feet in the air.

    You're a fucking idiot. IDF troops went house to house on the ground without the cover of tanks in Cast Lead.

    HA! yea, pussy.. house to house AFTER all the dangerous toddlers and women were bombed into the ruble. You may have watched Zohan one too many times, dude.

    Like I said, this is nothing more than election year rhetoric by a guy whose backbone is rigid as long as he's hiding behind the shadow of the United States. Israel may be able to dominate ghetto refugees who have been blocked of all recourses but we ALL know why we havne't seen your little jewish bastion attack iran already.

    :lol:
