JNS.org – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he will not include the Zionist Union alliance in any coalition he establishes if his Likud party wins the March 17 Israeli Knesset election.

In an interview with the haredi radio station Kol Berama on Friday, Netanyahu said, “It’s not certain that [the Likud party] will form the next government. It depends on how big Likud is. If [Zionist Union alliance partners] Tzipi [Livni] and Buji (Isaac Herzog) get drastically more votes, it could definitely be their job to form the next government.”

Netanyahu Lauds Trump for ‘Reassertion of American Leadership in the Middle East’

After their meeting in Jerusalem on Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked US President Donald Trump for his “reassertion...

The prime minister said that Habayit Hayehudi, Kulanu, Yisrael Beiteinu, and the haredi parties are Likud’s natural coalition partners.

“The ones who were not [partners] and will not be a partner is the Left under Tzipi and Buji,” Netanyahu said. “Tzipi criticized my decision in our government a few months ago to build in the Jewish neighborhoods of Jerusalem. Buji said he would divide Jerusalem. Tzipi says that I can’t build in Jerusalem? In Gilo? In Ramot? If a Jew can’t build in Jerusalem, where can a Jew build?”

    BIBI AND SARA…..BE WELL , SAFE….AND CONVEY OUR MESSAGE.

  • Re: Israel – To whom it may concern in Europe, Asia, Far East, the US and elsewhere r3

    We are tired of hearing that withdrawal from Judea and Samaria will bring peace. We know and you know that it would bring another Gaza. So stop saying it and promoting this fallacy. Past experience has proven that concessions, appeasement and land for peace only increased terror, violence and more conflict and hostilities.

    We are tired of hearing that land beyond the Green Line is ‘Arab-Palestinian land’. The Green Line is simply an armistice line that has no political significance. You know this too. The San Remo Treaty of 1920 Granted the Mandate for Palestine to the Jewish people, confirmed by the 1920 Treaty of Sevres, the same Allied powers also established 21 Arab States and one Jewish State – The Arabs are not willing to give up any part of the 21 Arab States and the Jews are not willing to give up any part of the Jewish State.

    We are tired of hearing about the “Arab-Palestinian people.” They are no different from the Arabs of Syria or Egypt, from which most of their ancestors migrated in the last 150 years or so. There is no Palestinian language or religion, and until very recently they considered themselves simply ‘Arabs’. Their culture is almost entirely defined by their opposition to the Jewish State. Teaching hate, violence and terror to their children. There never was an Arab-Palestinian State or people in History. The Arab Palestinians have a State in Jordan which is 80% of the land originally allocated to the Jewish people under the San Remo Treaty of 1920 and confirmed by the 1920 Treaty of Sevres.

    We are tired of hearing that “the Arab-Palestinians deserve a state.” We are indigenous here, not them, and their behavior entitles them more to a trial at The Hague than to a State. The Arab- Palestinians have a State it is called Jordan which was carved out of Jewish allocated land in 1922, in violation of the treaty of 1920.
    And they certainly don’t deserve our Jewish State, west of the Jordan river, which is the only State they want. They already took 80% of Jewish allocated land which is Jordan, a country that never existed in history before WWI. Israel also gave them the Gaza Strip which they use to attack Israel.

    We are tired of hearing about ‘The Occupation’, it is “Liberated Jewish Land”. As Minister Naftali Bennett said the other day, you can’t be an occupier in your own land. The Arabs are the occupiers, Greater Israel has been a Jewish State for 4,000 years even if it was temporarily conquered and occupied by various nations over the centuries.

    We are tired of hearing that “settlements are illegal under international law.” They are not. The San Remo Treaty of 1920 explicitly stated that Jewish people can reside anywhere in the Mandate for Palestine, those terms have not been abrogated and are set in perpetuity. It allocated The Palestine Mandate for the Jewish people. It does not state it is allocated to any other people and confirmed by the 1920 Treaty of Sevres.

    We are tired of hearing that “settlement construction is an obstacle to peace.” Arab rejectionism, destruction, violence, terrorism and suicide bombing is the reason there is no peace. When the Arab-Palestinians teach and preach hate, suicide bombing, terror and destruction to their children, this is definitely not a road to peace and coexistence.
    By the way, we are pro-peace. We are just not pro-suicide and self destruction.

    We are tired of hearing about the 5 million (or whatever ridiculous number there are alleged to be) ‘Arab-Palestinian refugees’ or the ‘Arab-Palestinian Diaspora’. There were about 600,000 Arabs in Israel 300,000 that left their homes in 1948, mostly of their own volition, more or less at the same time as the over 990,000 Jewish refugees from Arab countries, of which the Arabs confiscated their assets, businesses, homes and Real Estate 120,000 sq, km. – 46,000 sq. miles (which is 5-6 times the size of Israel) valued in the trillions of dollars. We resettled ours with limited land and resources — resettle yours (on the land and homes you confiscated from the Jewish people and or Jordan), the 21 Arab states have more land and resources. The Arab dis-information must be ignored and countered.

    We are tired of hearing anything from anyone associated with the U.N. The U.N. is a parasitic and criminal enterprise dominated by our mortal enemies. The U.N. cannot create states, it can only recommend and so can other nations only recommend and not create a state that never existed before in history. If they want an Arab-Palestinian state, it already exists, it is Jordan which has taken 80% of Jewish allocated land. They also have the land the Arabs Countries confiscated from the Jewish people which is 5-6 times the size of Israel (120,000 sq. km.).

    We are tired of stupid post-colonialist rhetoric. We are not ‘colonists’ and Arabs do not have the right to murder us in the name of ‘resistance’ or beheading Jewish Rabbi’s in Jerusalem’s Har Nof Synagogue. Talking this way reveals you as moral imbeciles. They train their children to be suicide bombers and terrorists. The Arabs are the colonialists, they have colonized the whole Middle East, and they will take over Europe soon..
    You can not recognize a state and people that never existed and that has no borders, no single government, and no economy. They are not trusted by the Arab states either. Kuwait expelled over 400,000 Arab-Palestinians.

    We know we can not depend on any kind of security guarantee from anyone except the Israel Defense Forces. So stop being insulted because we do not trust you. And do not ask us to give up any nuclear weapons we might or might not have or any other method and technology that could help protect us.

    If you hate us so much, give us back all our Medical technology that saved your lives. Give us back all our technology development that helped you advance economically and the list goes on and on.

    We know that the left-wing parties in Israel are bankrupt of ideas. We are not going to vote for them, no matter how much you would like us to. So do not bother trying to influence our election. We will only vote for a government that protects its people and cares about the Jewish heritage, more than it cares for world opinion.

    Don’t believe what you read in Ha’aretz newspaper, they represent a minority that has no allegiance to the Jewish heritage.

    Jerusalem, undivided, is the capital of the Jewish State of Israel. Get used to it, because you can not change it, the Jewish temple will be rebuilt in Jerusalem. It was never a Capital of any other nation.

    Sincerely,
    Ordinary Israelis who care about their safety, security, heritage and ancestry.

    I assume that polling is telling Netanyahu that he won’t need it anyway.
