    Netanyahu didn't win the election, but he and not Tzipi Livni was able to assemble a ruling coalition composed of the racist Yisrael Beiteinu. BUT LET US NOT IGNORE THE LABOR PARTY, which betrayed EVERYTHING it ever stood for to give Ehud Barak a forum from which he could betray all Labor voters. Barak is seure in his control of what is left of Labor. And the left is vanished as an influence on the future of Israel. We will not have Labor to deal with in the future, and Kadima will not survive it's founder, the vegetable Arik Sharon. So Akiva Eldar has nothing to complain about. Israel has the Prime Minister it wants, it has the policies that it IS. I would love to see the resurrection of the Israel of old. But it is DEAD. So very dead, and beyond any revival.
