Election Results & My Mixed Reaction

Updated with final numbers

Election Results:

Kadima-2829
Labor-20
Shas-1312
Yisrael Beiteinu-1211
Likud-1112
Arab Parties-109
NU/NRP-9
Retirees-7
UTJ-6
Meretz-45

The good news:
  • Shas is [now tied with Likud as] Israel's third largest party
  • Ain Shinui
  • Kadima got less seats than polls indicated

The not-so-good news:

  • Kadima likely will form a coalition that will give away parts of Eretz Yisrael

The consoling news:

  • Lev Melachim Beyad Hashem, and with our Tefillot and Teshuva, He will protect us from harm that would result from this government being formed.
  • We have reason to believe that Mashiah is coming in Nissan.
