WASHINGTON - The White House has made clear its dismay at Binyamin Netanyahu’s sweeping victory in the Israeli elections with a stinging rebuke of the “ divisive rhetoric ” used by the Israeli leader in the closing stages of the election. President Obama has not called to congratulate Netanyahu, who is now attempting to build a coalition between rightwing parties & his own Likud, which won decisively in parliamentary elections on Tuesday. But the White House said it would be forced to re-evaluate its policy on the Middle East peace process after Netanyahu abandoned a prior commitment to an independent Palestinian state.
Obama’s press secretary, Josh Earnest, reaffirmed the president’s belief in the two-state solution & strongly condemned Netanyahu’s decision to rally support with incendiary remarks about a high turnout among Israeli Arab voters. Netanyahu used a 28-second video on election day to warn that Israeli Arabs were being bussed to the polls “ in droves ”. “ The United States & this administration is deeply concerned about rhetoric that seeks to marginalise Arab Israeli citizens ” Earnest said. “ It undermines the values & democratic ideals that have been important to our democracy & an important part of what binds the United States & Israel together ”

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - Clearly God's hand is at work in Israel !!! Despite widespread predictions of certain defeat , Benjamin Netanyahu has won a decisive victory to secure re-election as Israel's Prime Minister. Stunningly , the election victory was an unexpected ' blow-out ' as Netanyahu surged to a surprise win ; the victory even coming despite campaign ' operatives ' controversially being sent by Barack Obama to Israel & being actively involved in trying to unseat the PM from office. This widely reported political interference from the Obama Administration further illustrates the ever-widening rift between Israel & it's ' long-time ' defender , the USA. As Israel now finds itself isolated & abandoned by even it's closest allies , we see the indisputable ' fulfillment ' of Bible Prophecy as ' all her lovers ' desert God's people in the last days before the dramatic ' final chapter ' of world events ... before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to deliver His people from their long-prophesied ' day of trouble '
Lamentations 1 v 1-5 - How doth the city ( Jerusalem ) sit solitary, that was full of people ! How is she become as a widow ! She that was ' great among the nations ' & princess among the provinces ... She weepeth sore in the night & her tears are on her cheeks : among ' all her lovers ' she hath ' none ' to comfort her : all her friends have dealt ' treacherously ' with her, they are become her enemies ... she dwelleth among the heathen, she findeth no rest : all her persecutors overtook her between the straits. The ways of Zion do mourn ... all her gates are desolate ... Her adversaries are the chief, her enemies prosper ; for the LORD hath afflicted her for the ' multitude of her transgressions ' ... her children are gone into captivity before the enemy.
