    When we go to the polls in January, ones who think of voting for Netanyahu should keep the following in mind: 1- It is a first in Political history of the modern world that the government of country of 7 million very actively tried(unsucessfully) to affect the elections in a country of 300 million 2- Netanyahu almost explicitely said "elect Romney". And as a result if the relected present will have some animosity towards Netanyahu and if the Israeli-USA relations suffer the one who is to blame is Bibi. Hopefully this will not happen since Obama is a wise statesman. 3-Why does Netanyahu and half the Israeli public believe that an American president will act on Israel wishes/aspirations if those are against Amerin people's interest? It is crazy! 4- Bibi tried to force, and in the process embarras Obama, by forcing him to draw a red line against Iran 1-2 months before Presidential Elections. All those mistakes against Obama has been made by someone who is fluent in English, knows the American politiocal scene(supposedly), has been previously Orime Minister, Foreign Minister and Israeli representative in the UN and have sold furniture in USA I am not a religious person but Gd. help us iif the duet Bibi/Lieberman win the elections!

    from the article: Obama may have one more campaign opponent to overcome – Netanyahu
