Israel set to decide U.S. Presidential Election

What? How is that possible… well…

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is calling early elections so that he and his government will be free to deal with Iran’s nuclear program this September-October, one of Israel’s best-informed political commentators said on Friday night.

Netanyahu is set on Sunday to announce that he is dissolving parliament and calling elections for September 4 — a year ahead of schedule. In the weeks immediately after that vote, said well-connected commentator Amnon Abramovich on the top-rated Channel 2 news, Netanyahu will head a transition government at home and have no need to worry about voter sentiment, and he knows that President Barack Obama will be paralyzed by the US presidential campaign.

This has been expected, actually, and has been ‘prophesied’ by American pundits for a while. By that, I mean that Israel has suggested that it was getting close to declare war, at which it was returned that they should do soon.

Ain’t this fun…
