    Israeli Election Results (LIVE)(Update: Big Night for Bibi)

    Israeli Election Results (LIVE)(Update: Big Night for Bibi)

    Looks likely that Benjamin Netanyahu will have another term as Prime Minister.

    It was a big night for Likud and Netanyahu. The votes coming in are giving Likud an even bigger lead than the exit polls indicated.

    Israeli English-language news is on the ground at Likud HQ, where the champagne has already started flowing:

    Conservative outlets are already embracing a Netanyahu victory:

    This Facebook video caused quite an uproar:

    Meanwhile, both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas made pleas for Israeli Arabs to vote for the Joint Arab List:

    …but CNN is stirring the “racist appeal” pot, and launching criticism at Netanyahu’s campaign tactics:

    Earlier in the night

    The polls in Israel have just closed (10 p.m. Local; 4 p.m. Eastern)

    Bibi or Bougie?

    We have a live news feed in English from from i24 News and a live Twitter feed, below the fold.

    We also will update as meaningful results are known.

    But the key here is to understand that the vote count is only the beginning of the process.

    Then we need to find out how many seats in the Knesset each party has won, and who will be asked by the President of Israel to form a majority coalition.

    That process could take weeks.

    If the exit polls are accurate, things could be interesting. Bibi did better than expected, as Likud was expected to be down 3-4 seats.

    A scintilla of light in this darkening world. Imagine to be brought to reality that evil forces within our government tried to smother this light. At once sickening, and inspiring.

    VAST TITANIUM BALLS..!!

    …as opposed to Obama’s VAST Testicular Concavity..!!

    Thank You, GOD.

    A very good result. When they dissect the election results, I hope they will ask voters if Obama’s anti-Bibi actions and biases had any role in the vote. I’m betting that his meddling actually helped Netanyahu quite a bit. Beyond the election though Netanyahu’s speech to Congress was Churchill like in its warning to the world about risks and dangers. We need to pay attention.
