Yep, it weakened the right wing hold on Israeli leadership.
Now Bibi will have to be more moderate.
How terrible!

Don’t over rate the results .Mostly ALL polls of Israelis show that well more than half [ 62-83% ] BELIEVE peace is not possible with the Palestinians in the foreseeable future. This election was more about the economy . When the Iranians finally do reach a point at which they can actually build a bomb [about 2 years ] and then start testing delivery systems , Iran WILL be the main issue . At present I think most Israelis harbor a small hope that Iran can be dissuaded from it’s present course .When that hope evaporates, Bibi’s point of view will be more acceptable . At the moment drafting the haredi and the economy are bigger issues than Iran .

And yet the still voted for a moderate.
Bibi is a wingnut, pure and simple.
