Oh wow! New poll puts Likud-Beiteinu at 46 Knesset seats

A new poll indicates that the options are on the table in Israel for Binyamin Netanyahu, and not for Barack Hussein Obama or the United States. The poll finds Netanyahu's Likud-Beiteinu party would rise to 46 seats from its current 31 in the 120-member Knesset if new elections were to be held today. The reasons for that rise are popular support for what is seen as Netanyahu's tough stances against the Iranian nuclear program and against the 'Palestinian Authority.'
Regarding Iran, a recent poll shows that Israelis align with Netanyahu in distrusting the current round of Western engagement and talks with Iran, figures that are in line with a November poll finding broad skepticism regarding the then-ongoing Geneva talks.
Some 52.5% support Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s position regarding tensions with the U.S. over Iran. A new survey has found that the majority of Jewish Israelis believes the government’s hard-line position regarding the Iranian threat is justified and that if need be, Israel is capable of mounting a unilateral strike on the Islamic republic’s nuclear facilities.
More than half of those interviewed — 52.5% — said they supported Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s position against the U.S. over the Iranian nuclear negotiations. The prime minister’s policy garnered support from participants across the political spectrum, and in all age groups and income brackets, with significant support noted especially in the religious sector (84.4%). Some 57.6% of those defining themselves as ultra-Orthodox said the supported Netanyahu’s policy on Iran as well.
Regarding the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, a recent poll found overwhelming support for maintaining a security presence along the border with Jordan in the context of a final comprehensive agreement. A report published last week by the Daily Beast disclosed that the Obama administration has established something of a lobbying presence inside Israel to “prepare the Israeli public” to make compromises to the Palestinians. The article specifically outlined efforts by the administration to mobilize support for an agreement that would exclude an Israeli security presence from around the Jordanian border.
Sounds like Obama is enjoying great success.... Heh....

Carl, I would rather watch test patterns than Hussein. We will not watch even a nano-second of his speech. I wish that someone would stick a sock in his mouth!
