Conservatives welcome Netanyahu victory
"Basically Israel now has to go at it alone, which is actually fulfillment of scripture. Zechariah 12 through 14 prophesies that to happen. They have to go at it alone in this world. America is going to be tougher and tougher on them under this new administration, which will be more pro-Islam than it will be pro-Israel," she contends. "And they want a leader who will not cave. And the only one that Israel could see that would not cave is Benjamin Netanyahu."
Friday's announcement means that Netanyahu now has six weeks to put together a ruling coalition. The Jerusalem Post says his liberal rival, Kadima leader Tzipi Livni, will not join any Netanyahu coalition. It will be made up with parties to the right of Likud.
