About the IDF vote
But the possible shift in seats is probably only going to be one (Hat Tip: Eliana).
Once soldiers’ votes are counted and the distribution of Knesset seats recalculated, the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party may be back up to 12 seats.
The extra seat would likely come at the expense of Ra’am Ta’al, which currently stands at five seats, up from its current three. Party head Ahmed Tibi expressed hope Wednesday morning that soldiers’ votes would not hurt the party’s new standing.And that piece is from Arutz Sheva, which may be Bayit Yehudi's biggest booster.
Still, the possibility of being able to make a coalition of 61 if necessary has got to make Netanyahu's life a little easier.
For the record, no, I haven't slept yet (other than the two hours or so I slept last night). I had a business meeting this morning. But now, I hope to crash for a couple of hours.
