The election’s results are less decisive than they seem.
The vacation-service proposal.
It failed to answer the question that was foremost in most Israelis’ minds.
It’s part of a trend away from names that once projected clear identities (Workers’ Party) and toward the politics of advertising (There Is a Future).
Not getting the joke.
Raising the electoral threshold paved the way for Otzma.
Elections, indictments, and a peace plan—oh my!
Even as each accuses the other of being soft on terror.
And the threat they pose to Israeli democracy.
Parliamentary maneuvering and Jewish values.
But the election remains his to lose.
The strong, silent type.
The battle of the Benjamins.
