Israel National News: Israeli Election of 2015 Was Crushing Defeat for Obama & the Appeasers
Despite his best efforts and an estimated $25 million Barack Obama and his far left supporters could not take down Benjamin Netanyahu this week in the Israeli elections.
In fact all of Obama’s attacks and interference may have actually backfired.
The main plank in the Labor aka Zionistsic Movement allegedly led by Isaac Herzog and Tsipi Livni was that they would repair the shaky relations with the American Government.
Despite the unabashed and amazingly public interference by the White House in the Israeli Elections, the Israeli public made it clear that they aren’t for sale.
The Israeli election of 2015 is a crushing defeat for Barack Obama and the appeasers of the left.Despite the dozens of Obama’s Democrat operatives who flooded Israel in the past few months, despite the unprecedented vilification Benjamin Netanyahu has suffered at the hands of the mainstream American and Israeli media (save for Sheldon Adelson’s daily Israel Hayom), despite the leftist alliance with the Joint (Arab) List whose declared goal is to dismantle the Jewish state, and despite the laundered money that Obama’s State Department funneled into the coffers of leftist Israeli political operatives, Netanyahu and Likud won a historic victory.

I was in the states, mostly New York, during the two weeks before Israeli Elections, yes, during the time of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s much heralded speech in congress, and I only heard praise for what he said and what he stands for.
To be honest, I think that Obama’s distaste for Bibi and interference actually helped Netanyahu’s campaign.
I thank President Obama for helping to propel the Likud to a landslide victory over its main opponent, Labor, which adopted the name Zionist Union for this election. While the notoriously unreliable Israeli polls had Zionist Union and its head, Isaac Herzog, leading Likud by a tally of 24 to 21, in the end ZU remained stable while Likud soared to 30 mandates (Knesset seats), a difference of 43% from the forecasts!
The American president did his utmost to thwart Bibi’s election chances. Most Israelis believe that towards Bibi, Obama has been discourteous and undiplomatic numerous times since his landmark election victory in 2008. But the president outdid himself when he overreacted following Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner’s announcement in February… (Steve Kramer)
Many Israelis and Americans were disgusted.
