This segment is broadcast during a gorgeous Jerusalem from a park in the Gei Ben Hinnom Valley. Malkah and alternative peace activist and dialoguer Baruch Widen join Yishai to further discuss why the results of the Israeli election can be seen as a freeing experience for the Jewish People as it could be the end of ideas such as the Oslo Accord. They move on to talk about the extremely low voter turnout among Israeli Arabs and how a lack of representation affects life for them. Yishai and the others switch gears completely and talk about the situation with the left and center-left parties including the potential demise of both Kadima and Tzipi Livni’s party and also how the election of Yair Lapid could affect Israeli politics. Malkah talks about her thoughts behind her polling decision and Widen gives his thoughts also on his decision in the voting booth.
