Notice how the Israelis have started to adjust their own politics in light of their acceptance that an Obama win is inevitable. Livni couldn't create her coalition as the joint Israeli generals/American Jewish Billionaires committee, the High Cabal, decided that they needed the hard-assiest of hard asses, Bibi, to 'manage' Obama (the Shas party was ordered to sink any chances of Livni governing). Now that the Old American Establishment has decided that the first step in reestablishing the destroyed American 'brand' is to be seen as being helpful in the Middle East, Bibi's the only one the Cabal could trust not to give in to the American pressure to agree to some kind of peace agreement (peace is the death of Zionism). Livni may beahead, but with the ridiculous proportional electoral system in Israel, it is a Netanhayu coaltion which will be running things, and blocking any attempts at peace. As always in Israel, things are going to get a lot worse before they get better.
