    On July 1, Ayelet Shaked posted a message on Facebook calling for war against the Palestinian people. She called for the killing of Palestinian mothers as they give rise to “little snakes.”

    Ayelet Shaked is not just a rabid blogger. She is a rising star in Israeli politics. She was elected to the Knesset last year and currently holds fifth place on the Jewish Home party’s list. Without her party’s 12 votes, Mr. Netanyahu’s coalition would be five votes shy of a majority and Mr. Netanyahu would not be prime minister. Her call for war has been answered. Palestinian mothers and their “little snakes” are being killed or maimed.

    While Mr. Netanyahu’s Likud Yisrael Beiteinu party only received 23.34 percent of the vote in the last election, he can usually count on 99 percent support from the U.S. Congress.

    We share his values.
