    Incredible how a Prime Minister of a country can live in total denial of the calamity he led his country into by his refusal to negotiate for peace and by allowing the reactionary forces within this coalition of his (which he so proudly and misguidedly touts as exemplary) to try to destroy the democratic fabric of the nation. His claims - and here he lists as the first top two items on his agenda: "We need the taxes to buy more Iron Domes, to complete the fence's construction" clearly demonstrate his priorities, which are not peace-making and bridge-building but war-mongering, saber-rattling and more divison, aggression and provocation in regard to Israel's Palestinian neighbors. All of his blustering legerdemain and sophistry should not deceive a discerning electorate which is aware of the facts and who will render him impotent from inflicting more damage on the country in the future by handing him and his coalition a resounding defeat at the polls in the very near future.
