It sounds like its really close. I guess if it ends up in a tie with each getting 60 seats, Netanyahu stays.

There is no settlement there. There are not even plans to build a settlement there. It’s all a PR stunt by Netanyahu.

This is elsewhere in this forum but I figured we could bring it here.

The DNC should oppose all money allocated to Israel from the federal budget until they backtrack this BS. They will not, but either way, Israel is making a mistake to align themselves this starkly with the republicans. It may not backfire as badly as it should, but it will affect the relationship when the dems are back in power.
