Israel Voted Today: I Chose ‘Power for Israel’

Someone asked me if Israelis were forced to vote or they had a choice...we so have a choice and we choose to vote.
Power for Israel MKs Michael Ben Ari (R) and Aryeh Eldad (RC) with party candidates Baruch Marzel (LC) and Aryeh King (L) under their campaign slogan "There are no rights, without duties."

The new Knesset bill will keep former MKs Michael Ben Ari (R) and Aryeh Eldad (RC) and nationalist activists Baruch Marzel (LC) and Aryeh King (L) far away from winning seats in the legislature.

If Arabs can have their seats in the Knesset – and they do, we too can have a voice.

As I drove home, I saw a friend’s son putting out fliers for Shas. Seriously? I asked him and he made a face. “How much are they paying you?” I asked him.

“Forty shekels an hour,” he grumbled.

I smiled back and said – here, give me three fliers – I’ll throw them out when I get home. He smiled and handed them to me.

Shas, you are SO in the wrong neighborhood. I live among those who are religious Jews, proud Israelis. We are the Dati Leumi – the national religious. When I was 13 years old, I read a book and fell in love with Israel, the wonder of our return to this land. I read, I learned, and as I did, I decided there are two parts to being a Jew – Torah and Israel. To fulfill the truest meaning of both parts, to be whole inside in heart and body – is to combine these.

Today, among friends and neighbors, in more joy than you can imagine, I voted. I voted for Israel to be strong. Power for Israel.

  1. Shira Levin says:

    If I were a citizen of Israel and could vote I would vote for one of the Nationalist parties or for Likud. Except for his support of the two state solution, which is actually a farce, I support Natanyahu. Especially since he isn't intimidated by Obama and stood up to him when Obama went against Israel re: borders and settlements.

  2. Yehuda Cohen says:

    Shaira: " Except for his support of the two state solution, which is actually a farce,…" this is the very reason for NOT to vote for Natanyahu.

    Everyone's life is like a clear glass bottle in which is put every action one made in their life time, every word and every thought. At the time of ones departure from this world, this "bottle" is brought out for every one to see. As one is standing before the Great Judge, one has to answer for everything in that "bottle". I can say that I did not vote for a party in Israel that wants to give the G-d given Holy Land of Israel to the Arabs. I voted for Power for Israel.
