    1. Labor is not needed. Bibi's coalition will still have a sufficient number of seats to govern. They can also bring in the National Union. The exit of Labor will only further serve to give Lieberman more power, thus driving the government further away from what Labor desires. Would Labor hand so much power to Lieberman on a silver platter? 2. Obama needs to worry about getting reelected with the expected wave of Republicans coming into Congress. Getting tough on Israel is not popular in the United States. The USA is a pro-Israel country. If Obama wants to further isolate Jews and independent Zionists, then he does so at his political expense. Additionally, a pro-Israel Congress will of course do what it can to thwart any plans on Obama’s that entail getting tough. 3. You know little about the Israeli public. They will not be bullied or threatened by a President they hate calling for a “reevaluation” of their relationship. Israelis are smart. They know Obama is politically unpopular, and they know that Obama taking an unpopular direction in US foreign policy will only help Israel in the long run. If the coalition were to crumble, Lieberman would be the victor. Polls consistently show a right-wing Israeli public. They won’t be bullied into being leftwing by a lame duck president. With each passing day, Bibi moves further and further to the left, leaving the right with only one real person to vote for.
