    Unfortunately Mr. Nehanyahu had to form a coalition with Shas and Yisrael Biteinu to form the government. Had Ms. Livni taken up the offer to join with him and form a unity government, he would not have had his hands tied by the extreme right. From over here it seems that Israeli politicians act in their own self interest first rather than in the interests of the country first. My apologies for interfering in local Israeli politics from far away. My children did not have to sacrifice their lives to ensure Israel's survival. I do what I can in other ways.
