Benjamin Netanyahu begins his election campaign

After more than two years attempting to be an internationalist Prime Minister and attempting to negotiate with the  Palestinian Leadership Benjamin Netanyahu has clearly released that there is no hope of achieving peace with the existing Palestinian leadership and has instead decided to embark on ensuring he wins the next election.

After basking in high popularity following the release of Gilad Shalit the Government appears to be again attempting to appeal to it's right wing supporters.  The election results of the past decade have shown that the centre-right are the dominant force in Israel and with Israeli elections only about 1 year away.  The Prime Minister has quite rightly therefore come to the conclusion that now is the time for him to again show that he will protect the security of Israel by starting to finalise plans to defend Israel against Iran by attacking Iran's nuclear bomb reactors.

Equally importantly after realising that there is no hope of peace negotiations succeeding, as the Palestinians have continued its international battle again Israel, and so again supported Jewish growth in all of Jerusalem and the West Bank territory of Israel.

These two moves clearly show that Benjamin Netanyahu is preparing to win another term as Prime Minister with a stronger Likud Party by beating Avigdor Lieberman and Israel Beiteinu as the largest right wing part.  Therefore expect to see more policies to support and protect Israel over the next months
