In the aftermath of his overblown confrontation with President Obama and his outspoken support for the loser, Mitt Romney - Netanyahu fears the return of Ehud Olmert to the Israeli political season. Stymied by Obama's refusal to wage war on Iran (an outrageous idea in the first place), Bibi turns to the most reliable whipping boy - Gaza. In the run-up to his election on January 22nd, Bibi will hammer Gaza to block Olmert's return to the power-game and to humiliate Obama, who dared to propose peace negotiations and construction freezes for Jerusalem and the settlements. By blasting, bombing and brutalizing Gaza, Bibi will win re-election so he can light his victory cigar and blow smoke in the faces of his archenemies: Olmert and Obama.
