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.

The merged Labor party, AKA the “Zionist Camp” headed by Yitzchak Herzog and Tzipi Livni, has drafted former military intelligence chief Amos Yadlin to fill its vacuum for a future Defense Minister if it forms the next government. Israel Radio (Voice of Israel) was quick to promote Yadlin Tuesday morning with soft-glove questions that allowed […]

Yisrael Beytenu introduced his list, and even added a native English speaker, even if he stuck him in an unrealistic spot.

The popular right-wing Knesset Member now is in the 20th place on the list of candidates.

The inclusion of Hager may help Yishai’s party get enough voters to be elected to the Knesset.

The younger generation is decidedly left-wing and right-wing.

This is hands down the best election commercial I’ve seen so far. Netanyahu is a kindergarten school teacher with an unruly class made up of his former coalition partners. Of course, you can always look at it as saying that Netanyahu is unable to control the class, and it’s his fault. Either way, its definitely […]
