      Shiloh Musings

      What Wasted Votes!

      There's always more on Shiloh Musings and me-ander.  The following post also appears on Shiloh Musings, where there has been quite an interesting response. 
      Shabbat Shalom u'Mevorach!

      I feel like a broken record, repeating time after time, that most people who voted for Likud had wasted their votes.  They trusted that Bibi's "Center" campaign would get him in power to give us Right wing pro-Jews in the Land of Israel policies.  Instead, as I suspected and blogged, he is using his power to give us Labor-Kadima and Loony-Left policies.

      Sorry, chevra, but you've been had!
        Don't kvetch now about not liking Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's policies.  Do something.
      Leave the Likud en masse and join the National Union, and that especially includes Likud MK's who, along with Moshe Feiglin's Manhigut Yehudit, are the guiltiest of this con.  They gave the Likud a "Mehadrin Hechsher--strictest approval" that a vote for Likud would ensure a strong and Jewish Israel, protecting Jewish Rights in our HolyLand.

      Things will not get better within the Likud and we don't have time for Feiglin's plea for "patience."

      Shabbat Shalom u'Mevorah
      May you have a peaceful and blessed Sabbath
