Israel 'closer than ever' to decision on hitting IranNow that Netanyahu has claimed victory in Israel and Nuclear negotiations are folding we may be on the verge of what many has believed to be inevitable! An attack on Iran! According to WND, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party scored a surprisingly comfortable win in Tuesday’s parliamentary elections, and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton says the vote was a “stinging defeat” for President Obama that will make Iran far more nervous and probably lead to more appeasement from the U.S. in nuclear negotiations. Most polls prior to Tuesday’s elections suggested momentum was moving away from Netanyahu and Likud. When early reports suggested high turnout among Arab voters, the outlook seemed even more bleak for the prime minister. However, it became clear fairly early in the vote counting that Likud would win. The party scored 30 seats and is poised not only to form a coalition government without much trouble, but it will likely be even more conservative than the current government. The results also follow Obama political operative Jeremy Bird and his team working to defeat Netanyahu. Members of Congress are investigating whether taxpayer funds were used in the efforts. Either way, Bolton said there is no way to spin the elections as anything other than a crushing defeat for the Obama administration. “It’s a stinging political defeat for the president and those who wanted to get rid of Netanyahu,” he said. “They were making the mistake of counting their chickens before they hatched in the run-up to the election, and now all of that’s changed.” FULL REPORT
