Who Am I Voting For, and How Should You Vote?

At JewishPress.com we’ve spent countless hours discussing the pros and cons of voting for each particular party. Now we'll share some of the discussions that have made this election decision such a difficult one.

My Endorsement
As you can see, it’s clear why not just us, but so many other people are still undecided at this late stage of the game.
All three parties, Likud-Beytenu, HaBayit HaYehudi and Otzma L’Yisrael are good. Very good in fact. But a vote for any of them comes with its own price and risk, while not voting is giving your vote to the other side.The only choice I see is to endorse all three parties, and let you, our readers, decide which of the arguments above makes the most sense to you.As for myself, I suspect I’ll only know who I am voting for once I’m in the voting booth.

    Like many anglo Israelis you got it wrong re: influence. We need a strong Righ opposition, which we won't have without Otzma in the knesset. Remember that the NRP-Bayit Yehudi people did not give good spots to Arieh Eldad and Michael Ben-Ari. They didn't want them in and didn't want their influence. They just wanted the votes.
    Bibi does not poll his cabinet ministers nor his MKs when making policy decisions, so in actuallity the coaliton has less power than the oppositon. Let's all pray that there be Otzma LeYisrael in the Knesset to be the oppositon we can count on.

    Otzma will do exactly what happened in 92. Intelligent people learn from experience. Unfortunately others do not. I will never make that mistake again.

Bensouda suggested it was in “the best interest” of Hamas and Israel to provide the needed information.

Minister and chair of Bayit Yehudi party, Naftali Bennett.

The primary road block is the position that Bayit Yehudi party head Naftali Bennett will receive.

Baruch Marzel.

Marzel not sorry Yachad party’s loss cost Bayit Yehudi seats in Knesset. Bennett accuses Netanyahu of thinking he is a sucker.

Yoav Horowitz

Who is Horowitz? He’s Netanyahu’s eyes and ears. He’s very close to him, literally his personal representative everywhere…

in a new report, Amnesty International charges “Gaza armed groups’ with war crimes in last summer’s Operation Protective Edge.

If there are no surprises, Netanyahu is expected to form a coalition, after some tough negotiations, with the Likud, Bayit Yehudi, Kulanu, Yisrael Beytenu, UTJ and Shas.

One wonders how many Prime Ministers Herzog envisions sitting in that one chair at the same time.

Netanyahu is expected to have 61 recommendations in his favor.

There’s much disappointment within Yesh Atid as they head into the oppositions.

Final voter counts are in, if Yachad doesn’t petition the courts over voter fraud…

“The truth is it’s surprising to us as well, but it turns out each one of us voted their hearts.”

The anti-Bibi campaign’s quiet change in tax status both came too late and constitutes an admission of wrongdoing.

If the media hadn’t been so eager to oust Netanyahu, voter apathy could have made that happen.

Netanyahu said he wants to have a government formed within the next 2 to 3 weeks.

The overwhelming electoral victory by the Likud was nothing less than a revolution, and an absolutely clear mandate from the people.

At 50% of the votes counted, the Likud pulls way ahead… but what will the remaining 50% do?
