Netanyahu Wins Likud Race, Eyes PM Role

Aug 15, 4:27 AM (ET)

By AMY TEIBEL


JERUSALEM (AP) - Benjamin Netanyahu, wink fresh off a commanding election win as leader of Israel's hardline Likud Party, vowed Wednesday to shift his efforts toward reclaiming his old job as prime minister shout

Netanyahu faced a relatively strong challenge from Moshe Feiglin, a radical West Bank settler, whose performance in Tuesday's primary could help shore up the extreme right wing of the party rambo and hurt Netanyahu's efforts to rehabilitate Likud after it was battered in national elections last year bs

Recent polls have crowned Netanyahu, Likud's leader since late 2005, as the front-runner for Israel's top job Two eyes and teeth

Netanyahu captured 73 percent of the vote to Feiglin's 23 percent, according to final results party officials released early Wednesday. A third candidate, Danny Danon, trailed with 3.5 percent.


Netanyahu's victory was a foregone conclusion after he announced the elections on short notice, eliminating a run by his chief internal rival, former Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom, who said he didn't have enough time to campaign clap

In his victory speech, Netanyahu made it clear that the race was a dress rehearsal for a much bigger contest.

"Tonight the internal contest ended, and as of tomorrow, we will focus our efforts on bringing a new leadership to Israel," Netanyahu told dozens of cheering supporters happy2

A telegenic politician and self-described hawk, the M.I.T.-educated Netanyahu speaks flawless, American-accented English. He's tough on defense issues and hands-off on the economy, but in recent months has been trying to position himself in the political center to try to lure moderate voters in_da_nuts

"It's clear that Netanyahu is a right-wing man, but a right-wing man who is always winking at the center," political commentator Hanan Crystal said Tuesday lol


Feiglin's platform calls for barring Arabs from Israel's parliament, encouraging non-Jews to emigrate and pulling Israel out of the United Nations. wink He is viewed as extreme even by many Israeli settlers.

Israeli general elections are scheduled for 2010, but could be earlier if Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's fractious coalition government falls apart, or if Olmert himself - facing low poll numbers and a series of legal woes - leaves office. Current polls show Netanyahu's main rival would be the Labor Party's Ehud Barak, who unseated Netanyahu as prime minister in 1999.

With many Israelis on summer holiday, turnout among the nearly 100,000 Likud members was slightly under 40 percent. In an effort to encourage Likud members to vote, Netanyahu extended the polling until 11 p.m. and stationed ballot boxes at hotels around the country.

Though Feiglin counted on the support of only 10 percent of Likud's members, he stood to win as much as 30 percent of the vote because of pro-Netanyahu no-shows, Crystal said before the polls closed.

That level of support "would brand the Likud as negative, reactionary, and delusional, which would play into the hands of its political rivals," commentator Yossi Verter wrote Tuesday in the Haaretz daily.

Security guards barred Feiglin and his supporters from entering the hall where Netanyahu delivered his victory speech. Crystal interpreted this as a sign of what Netanyahu had in store for the party's radical faction now that the primary race was over.

"Whoever doesn't let Feiglin into the hall apparently intends to throw him and his supporters out of the Likud," Crystal said. "Let's see if he succeeds."

Likud dominated Israeli politics for nearly three decades until 2005, when party leader Ariel Sharon bolted to form the centrist Kadima, taking top Likud legislators with him. Sharon was incapacitated by a stroke in early 2006 and replaced by Olmert, another former Likud politician who led Kadima to victory in elections several months later.

Likud fell apart in that vote, shrinking to 12 seats in Israel's 120-seat parliament from 38 in the previous elections in 2003.

But Netanyahu's hawkish policies appear to have gained renewed popularity with an Israeli public frustrated by ongoing rocket fire from the Gaza Strip and angry over the country's inconclusive war against Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon last summer Rolling Eyes

Netanyahu was a vocal opponent of Israeli-Palestinian peace deals in the early 1990s, but later, as prime minister from 1996 to 1999, he negotiated two interim peace deals and handed over most of the West Bank town of Hebron to the Palestinian Authority wtf

Still, his relations with the Palestinians were acrimonious and his ties with the Clinton administration, which wanted to see more Israeli flexibility, were often strained shitcanned

Ok, I don't know exactly what this says:

בראשית ברא אלהים את השמים ואת הארץ


However, I'm pretty sure I understand the general idea. The Hebrew text above refers to a "protector of the family and/or people" and a "ruler". It is a term of respect for the "head of the family and/or people".

So in this case, Magic is paying respect to Netanyahu as a protector of Israel.



Well, Magic?? Am I right?? king

You are sort of right there =SA=

Hebrew is written right to left.

The only clue I will give you is it is the first sentence in the most famous book ever written and I bet every one you know has read at least that sentence.

(btw I have that written in that concrete circle out by the pond I made back in 1987)

People always ask what it says and I tell em they have to learn Hebrew and see if they can figure it out king

Easy stuff
