From Jerusalem Post:


If Netanyahu’s speech is a success, Obama’s foreign policy will be indefensible


Officially, the election on March 17 is among Israelis. Depending on how we vote, either Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will remain in office and form the next government led by his Likud party, or Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni will form a government.

Pay attention.
