Conservative leader Benjamin Netanyahu will be Israel's next prime minister. Congrats to him on this victory. It is time that Israel return to its conservative roots in its survival. However, where are the conservative American Jews? It seems like most American-Israeli citizens vote for liberal causes in the US. Will this conservative Jewish movement come to the US?
Israeli President Shimon Peres has chosen Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu to form a new government. Will Netanyahu have the support of the United States and the Obama administration? It seems like the new emphasis on "listen to our enemies" will affect our relationship with Israel.
It may be that Israel now has to go it alone in its protection of its citizens and its foreign policy. Obama and Clinton may be tougher on Israel, which will be more pro-Islam than it will be pro-Israel. We hope that Benjamin Netanyahu does not cave to these new policies and creates a government that will challenge Iran and the terrorists in the Middle East.
