Livni Survives Rigged Israeli Election

Why does the Boston Globe replace my printed article with NYT bullshit?

Oh, yeah, censorship, I mean, an "update!"

"Livni heads toward victory in Israeli primary"

JERUSALEM (AP) -- Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni headed toward victory early Thursday in the Kadima Party's primary for its leadership post, an outcome that would put her in a good position to become Israel's first female leader in 34 years.

Now, my paper says:

"The actual vote count was reflecting the exit polling."

The web article says

Television exit polls late Wednesday said Livni posted a clear victory in the day's election. But the actual partial vote count showed a tighter race.

Israel's three networks announced their exit polls gave Livni between 47 percent and 49 percent, compared to 37 percent for her closest rival, former defense minister and military chief Shaul Mofaz. But with about 80 percent of the votes tallied early Thursday, Livni had 45 percent to 41 percent for Mofaz, party officials told Israel Radio. If official results bear out the exit polls...

How come exit polls count except in the 2004 American presidential election, folks?

I smell another rig job; is there NO ELECTION in this world that isn't rigged?

A former lawyer, army captain and one-time agent in the Mossad spy agency, Livni favors diplomacy over confrontation, even though she said last week that she has "no problem pulling the trigger when necessary.''


Did the NYT reference her colorful career, readers?

Cased closed on the Zionist Globe and Jew York Times.

And check out the vote fraud

"Livni takes top post in ruling Israeli party; Narrow win may hinder coalition effort" by Ethan Bronner, New York Times News Service | September 18, 2008

JERUSALEM - Tzipi Livni, Israel's foreign minister, narrowly won election yesterday to replace Prime Minister Ehud Olmert as leader of Israel's Kadima party, edging past her main rival, Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz, according to official results.

Mofaz's supporters called for a recount, but Israeli media reported that he had called Livni to congratulate her and had rejected a legal adviser's proposal that he appeal the results.

When the polls closed at 10:30 p.m. yesterday, exit surveys indicated that Livni had swept to victory with a 10-point lead. But as counting of the nearly 40,000 votes progressed, the gap narrowed sharply. Before dawn, officials announced that Livni had won by 431 votes, according to Israel Radio.

And CUI BONO, folks?

Coalition options for both candidates are complex, and the smaller the victory the less clear the mandate would be to form a government without elections.
