1. Netanyahu is a liar
Fad Egypt   (02.19.13)
he promised during the elections not to give Livni any role in the talks with the PA, he doesnt care about the country, he only wants to be a PM, if he really wants to pressure Neftalli to join the government, he should ve brought the haredim first and gave them a good proposal on the draft issue, then turns to Neftalli and he will sure join him, Neftalli tried in the past days to reach an agreement with the haredim means he wants them in the government unlike Lapid, but Bibi turned to the leftist Livni and Labor, if Bibi formed a government with the left and the haredim and left Bennett out, it will be a disaster, he will destroy himself politically and wont be able to protect the national interests of the country, i hope that Bibi comes to his senses and start talks with the haredim and Bennett imediately before it is too late shalom
2. Is this a Joke?
Levi ,   Karmiel   (02.19.13)
NO ONE WANTS HER This is why she received not votes. THIS HAS TO BE A JOKE.
3. Vote Bibi get Tzippi Livni?? What the .........?????
Yoni ,   Israel   (02.19.13)
Something is seriously wrong with Bibi. I mean SERIOUSLY. Maybe some kind of personality disorder or something like that.
4. There is something very fishy in Netanyahu´s attitudes
Keren ,   IL-BR   (02.19.13)
The party of this woman received the least number of votes after Kadima,nevertheless she is gaining perhaps the most important post in Israeli politics. The post of Justice minister is the post Livni occupied when Sharon destroyed Gush Katif.So Livni was the first and foremost Sharon alied and supporter when he perpetrated a crime to the people of Israel.A CRIME!with the Justice of Israel garanty,the Justice that was in Livni´s hands! What are the intentions of Netanyahu? Is this man as mad as Sharon?
5. Woe Hold The Train?
6. Woe Hold The Train?
I thought she said she Won't Be Part Of Bibi's Government? Please Explain her change of heart?
7. Wow Amazing
Jay Abouaf ,   Jaffa Israel   (02.19.13)
Nothing like recycling the used and reused. Nepotism. The Old Boys Network. NO new thinking . Israel IS a Banana Republic Kibbutz. I never believed ny Israeli friends that had left the country. Now I'm here and I believe it. What a shame !
8. To flaming narcissists teaming up to save each others throat
Harold ,   Tel Aviv   (02.19.13)
Both cut throat liars. Both totally self absorbed and self focused. Neither have any morals. Two of a kind in every way. This is VERY BAD for Israel.
9. Anyone else here feeling as sick as I?
Mira ,   Vienna   (02.19.13)
What a disgusting cheating of the Israeli people! My only comfort is that this will be the end of Bibi's political life and in a very short time!
10. Madman
Keren ,   IL-BR   (02.19.13)
Netanyahu is a madman! And this is not an emphatic expression. He truly behaves as so! New elections should be called before a great damage is made in Israel!
11. Bibi "save my own @$$" Netanyahu strikes again!!!!!!!!!!
Shaul ,   Israel   (02.19.13)
Why is anyone surprised? After all these years don't you know Bibi?
12. Better then Na'aman for sure-N. Eshel can't form a coalition
miki ,   tampa   (02.19.13)
The rest of you people are far too busy back-biting, slandering and spreading lies by exploiting anti-feminist polemic of the Frightwing and the religious parties. Get over it, she's in and she's the best Bibi could entice into his government.
13. Ramon has too much on his plate with HaPoel to be concerned
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (02.19.13)
14. Impeachment
Keren ,   IL-BR   (02.19.13)
Netanyahu should be impeached. What he is doing goes against any common sense. It simply does not make sense! People didn´t vote Livni!
15. That's why I did not vote Bibi last time
Israeli 2   (02.19.13)
I knew he would hand Likud to whomever else wants it as long as he gets to lead a government - no matter what government andno matterwhat name "Likud" will have.
16. Bennet was just taught an important lesson
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (02.19.13)
a young upstart should not try to blackmail a sitting prime minister.
PULL HIS BLUFF ,   Israel   (02.19.13)
to Likud. NOBODY WILL VOTE Likud again. ALL Likud + all Beit Yehudi votes will go to BENNETT. Bibi has proven absolutely positively he is a liar and a traitor. He doesn't deserve to be PM one more day.
18. Mira # 9
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (02.19.13)
A lot of people thought LIvni's political life had ended. It seems our leaders never fail to dissapoint us.
19. Too bad
Lana ,   Israel   (02.19.13)
I hope Yesh Atid & Naftali Bennet are able to form a government without Netanyahu......somehow!
20. This is a nightmare for Israel
Reuven   (02.19.13)
YIsrael of Jerusalem ,   Jerusalem , ISRAEL   (02.19.13)
22. to the people who are complaining now
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (02.19.13)
some of you did not vote for netanyahu in the belief that a young, ambitious bennet would better serve your nationalist agenda. you put your own needs ahead of the nation which is facing serious existential threats. bennet tried to blackmail netanyahu by joining forces with lapid and refusing to disassociate from him. now you are stuck with livni. had you voted for likud, none of this would have happened.
23. OMG
She'll give away the whole country - unbelievable!!! ;
24. #22 Cipora
Bill Stein ,   USA   (02.19.13)
So Cipora for personal spite Bibi sold Israel down the river. Yes Bibi really cares about the country.
25. Proud of my vote for Tzippi Livni
Keren ,   Tel Aviv   (02.19.13)
Peace with the Palestinians should be a priority for all of us living in Israel if we want to build a stable state for our children.
26. possibly a very shrewd political move
shloime ,   toronto, canada   (02.19.13)
this move may be smarter than it looks - the negotiations with abu mazzen are going nowhere, and tzipi isn't likely to be able to restart them. so obama can get off netanyahu's back. even if she does, she can't make any deals (ie betray israel's interests) without the cabinet's (bibi's) approval. and this coalition isn't going to win tenuah any more votes in the next election.
DAVID ,   JUDEA   (02.19.13)
As usual the voter gets screwed here, due to a totally corrupt political system were cronism rules. Bibi 's only concern is his hold on power and he makes a mockery of the Likud. Yair Lapid stands a good change to become the next PM and that will probally better for all of us, it is high time we get rid of all the recycled trash doing its chair dance in the knesset.
28. Oh no Livni is back
I thought that's what we DIDN'T want?
29. The game is not over.....
Shalom ,   U.S.A.   (02.19.13)
I'm not surprised, I've been telling this since the beginning of the campaign; Netanyahu would ally himself with the devil in order to advance his selfish agenda. My hope is that Livni is not strong enough to ensure the stability of a new government.
30. Exactly what Bibi needs. Someone ELSE TO BLAME when Obama...
Bibi's bad cop ,   = Livni ( = Barak)   (02.19.13)
"makes him" give half of Israel to the terrorists.
