I just wrote about how Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu can't survive as Israeli Prime Minister. And I don't mean in the long term, in my humble opinion we can measure the rest of Netanyahu's current tenure as Prime Minister in...
I'm betting that right now Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had his old hernia back. It had to be less painful than what he's going through now. Over the last couple of days his own short sighted, arrogant, homicidal...
