Rose-colored glasses obscure reality. Calling Israel centrist turns truth on its head. Dominant parties spurn democracy. They reflect Zionist extremism. They claim Jewish supremacy.

They deplore peace. They embrace violence, not peaceful coexistence. They endorse confrontation over diplomacy.

They believe in strength through militarism, intimidation, and naked aggression. They menace Jews and Arabs alike. They threaten neighboring states and humanity.

The Wall Street Journal headlined "Israel's New Political Center," saying:

Netanyahu remains prime minister with "different partners." Israel's "center" held. "Conventional wisdom" was wrong.

The Washington Post said Netanyahu's "weakened" position "raised the prospect of a more centrist government that could ease strained relations with Washington and signal more flexibility in peace efforts with the Palestinians."

The Los Angeles Times said Netanyahu's "disappointing performance will require him to reach out to the center in order to form a governing coalition."

Haaretz contributor Ari Shavit highlighted "The dramatic headline of this election: Israel is not right wing."

He's Haaretz's resident hawk. He claims King Bibi's reign ended. He'll remain prime minister but won't rule. "His life will not be easy, not politically and not in terms of policy."
