  • Voters to Netanyahu: Get new friends

    By Shmuel Rosner

    January 22, 2013 | 4:39 pm

    These were the most interesting-boring elections one could ever hope for. Boring – as the top job was secured early on by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Fascinating – as the parties, unburdened of having to compete for the top job, were free to combat one another for votes....

  • On Election Day, Israel’s undecided voters face moment of truth

    January 22, 2013 | 8:36 am

    Israelis are almost never shy about offering their opinions, especially when it comes to politics.

  • The problem with Israel’s electoral system

    By Gidi Grinstein

    January 16, 2013 | 11:31 am

    Israel’s electoral system is the root cause of the disheartening polarization and superficiality on display in Israel’s current election season. Many wrongly point to the egos of our politicians as the underlying reason. In reality, powerful constitutional disincentives for...

    By Shmuel Rosner

    January 16, 2013 | 11:09 am

    The story of the upcoming Israeli elections, which will take place on Jan. 22, can be written in many different ways. 

    One is with an eye to the small numbers, a story of preserving the political status quo: Back in 2009, the Kadima Party got 28 mandates. In 2013, if polls are to...

    Less than two weeks before the election, and here is a seeming paradox: on the one hand, the spread between the two blocs (Likud-Right-Religious versus the Center-Left) is as wide as it has been for the last two months, but on the other hand the pundits and the statisticians...

    By Shmuel Rosner

    December 17, 2012 | 8:18 am

    No one ever accused former Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni of any hint of corruption. She is a woman with as untainted a record for a politician as one can have. Nonetheless, you’d have to really stretch those muscles of ethical behavior to keep calling Livni a principled...

  • Kadima crumbles, Labor emphasizes social issues and Likud still dominates

    December 6, 2012 | 11:16 am

    Two months ago, the strategy for victory was clear: To unseat Benjamin Netanyahu in elections on Jan. 22, Israel’s handful of center-left parties had to unite under one banner and choose a leader who could challenge the Israeli prime minister on issues of diplomacy and security.

    Today (Thursday) is D-day. It is the last day for Israelis parties to register if they are running in this election cycle. Unlike the U.S., in Israel the voters don’t register in advance. But the parties do, and by tomorrow they will no longer be able to do so. So lists have had to...
