      End of the Suspense, Sort Of


      Does This Make You Feel Better?

      It’s Final: Peres Entrusts Netanyahu with Forming a Government
      And we also must pray that G-d will gift our political leaders with wisdom.
       

      Honestly, I don't. I don't want Bibi as Centrist.

      I don't want Left nor Center as Israeli Prime Minister. I don't want the incompetent opportunists in Kadima either.

      I wish that the National Union had gotten lots more seats, so that Bibi would really need them. As is Moledet's Uri Bank just missed getting in. Ketzeleh campaigned well, but will he be effective as an MK?

      Ketzeleh signed an agreement that if he's a minister he'd resign from the Knesset to give Bank the seat. That would be great, because it would increase the power of Ichud Le'umi.

      It's minutes to Shabbat.

      We must pray for rain.

      And we also must pray that G-d will gift our political leaders with wisdom.
