HPW: Election Results

The Huffington Post covered the Israeli election results, which if you haven't heard by now resulted in a more centrist government than people expected, but Netanyahu was still in position to form a government and thus maintain his position as PM. Of course, the HP couldn't resist taking a shot at Israeli democracy with this line: "the rival camp drew 12 of its 60 seats from Arab parties that traditionally are excluded from coalition building," deciding not to mention that numerous Arab parties have platforms like "bring on the one state solution" and "Israel is an apartheid state." Anyway, despite the moderate results, the Huffington Posters couldn't help themselves from ranting and raving about Netanyahu and Israel in general. Here's some of the top comments from the thread:

Just more "mere criticism of Israel's policies", right, guys?
