This seems like a plausible enough reading of the election results to me:
“The question is not what the polls say. The question is what the reality is. From this day on, the right wing bloc rises to an absolute majority in the Knesset,” the Likud chair went on to say. [...] “The rise of the right-wing camp and the Likud can only mean one thing, the people want change,” Netanyahu exclaimed. “The people want one path. Our path won and it will lead the people.”
This would be an interesting (albeit, perhaps, in the Chinese curse sense) experiment in Israel really thumbing its nose in the face of the sensibilities of the American political leadership.
