Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has agreed to a political deal forming a government of national unity with the leading opposition party and canceling plans to hold early elections.
The new coalition has 94 members, or more than three-fourths of the parliament, and is the largest coalition in the country's history.
Under the deal, Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz - a former army chief and defense minister-- becomes vice-prime minister and joins Mr. Netanyahu's powerful inner cabinet
Over 1,000 people demonstrated on Tuesday night near the Habima Theater in Tel Aviv against the deal struck between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz. The protest, which took place near where the 2011 summer protest began on Rothschild Boulevard, included waved flags, and chanted slogans such as “Bibi, go home.”

How excellent to be able to give money to another Country when the USA is living in debt.
I am soon moving my entire business and operation to Costa Rica. No income tax for eight years and most importantly? True freedom. I tried to make a run of it here and I can make a decent living working my arse off. Of course my idiot government here in the USA does not care as they are corrupt as it gets.

both the israeli and iranian governments are right wing religious fanatics. maybe when they destroy each other we can finally start thinking about socialism. i just feel sorry for the young folks that have to fall victim to such monsters.
