Default I told you it was about the Israeli Premiership

Why did Israel chose now to retaliate against Palastine?

So the woman incharge could have a greater chance of winning the premiership of course...I hope Benjamin gets it instead


Israeli's Tzipi Livni is leading the exit polls but her two-seat lead over Benjamin Netanyahu left it too close to call who will be PM.

Whatever the final outcome, the poll findings suggested a dramatic triumph for the 50-year-old Ms Livni, bidding to become Israel's first woman leader since Golda Meir in the 1970s, and a sharp rebuff to former premier Mr Netanyahu, the long-time favourite.

Mr Netanyahu's Likud party had been the favourite until Ms Livni and her centre-left coalition launched a three-week offensive in the Gaza Strip in late December.

The attacks won her popular support in Israel despite an international outcry over the 1,300 Palestinians killed in the Hamas-ruled enclave.

Exit polls on three Israeli television channels showed Kadima retaining around its present 29 seats in the 120-seat, single-chamber Knesset, with Likud two seats behind. At Kadima's campaign headquarters, Ms Livni's supporters cheered and danced.

However, some analysts noted that soldiers, whose votes could account for a couple of seats, had not been counted in exit polls and that could favour Mr Netanyahu as tallying continues.

pronouced Ben-ya-min-n-yet-an-ya-hoo hahahahaha...what a Supurb name!
