Shaked has been quoting a lot of traditional Jewish terms these days – much the way Hillary Clinton used to drop the hard G's at the end of her sentences the further she got below the Mason-Dixon line.
The announcement had been anticipated for some time by political pundits.
The thing is, every child in Israel is familiar with the sweeping accusations Barak spewed from the podium Wednesday night.
Joe Biden stuck by his talking points, Beto O'Rourke said he had no intention of forcing a peace agreement on the two sides, and Cory Booker, God bless him, told her to vote for someone else.
"I know that conversion treatments are wrong and severe, this is my unequivocal position."
Right or wrong, this thing isn't going away.
Former IDF chief rabbi Rafi Peretz insists that he “does not support” conversion therapy and claims that his remarks were misrepresented in a way that “further deepens the rift in Israeli society.”
Let Smotrich and Peretz ask Itamar Ben-Gvir and Michael Ben-Ari how it feels to drop from a faction of four MKs in 2009, to 70,000 votes in the last elections, because they were so smart and pure of heart and free-speechy.
Barak stated over the weekend that he has ordered his lawyers to reexamine the business contacts he shares with Epstein.
The practice is banned in many countries, and has been blamed for mental suffering, including suicide, on the part of patients.
Mark Mellman, president of Democratic Majority for Israel, on July 9 sent a warning letter to the Democratic presidential candidates regarding a "strongly anti-Israel organization, IfNotNow."
Earlier, a Hamas man was killed on the Gaza Strip border by IDF fire and the terrorist organization threatened retaliation.
Netanyahu also vowed to impose Israeli sovereignty in Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria. That promise and a cheese and tomato sandwich should provide you with a healthy meal.
According to this morning's poll, should such a slate emerge, the public at large believes Ayelet Shaked is the best candidate to lead the unified religious right to victory.
IfNotNow activists approached Warren in New Hampshire, asking to her to push "the Israeli government to end occupation.” Warren enthusiastically replied yes and took a picture with them.
This is the point the five parties should push, this must be the core of their campaign, to replace Avigdor Liberman as kingmakers.
A pathetically unreliable poll last Friday gave them 19 seats (never gonna' happen), but in reality they could play this out to keep everyone away from the next Knesset.
Latest polls show that in a right vs. left constellation, Liberman is needed to form any coalition.
Shaked's casual text was Shaked's rebuttal to Rabbi Shlomo Aviner, whose sweet manner and French accent often makes his listeners forget that he represents an extreme-Haredi line with questionable notions regarding Israeli society.
Does Ehud Barak understand that sticking by the Satmar agenda against his foes in the religious-Zionist parties is highly unusual?
“Now is the time to return hope and courage to Israel, to unite and return Israel to the right track."
One good thing from last night: the vote results were tabulated and announced in a matter of seconds.
This is not the first time Peretz has served as Labor Party chairman; Peretz has also served as defense minister in the government cabinet of former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.
There's an anti-Semitic panic there, deep inside the man, born in a land with much more snow over much longer parts of the year.
That beacon of Jewish light, IfNotNow, dedicated to preaching to unsuspecting Birthright youths why the settlers are the same as Nazis, but less organized.
No matter what he does next, Bennett is losing something.
Instead of working to mend the ties of the Democratic party with Israel, J Street rejoices in making the split even wider.
Barak presents himself as the statesman who can lead the left to victory. That's a big difference between himself and the generals at Blue & White: he is unafraid to declare himself part of Israel's left.
A minimum two-thirds majority of the Knesset – 80 lawmakers – is required to get this done, if it's at all possible.
Chairman Peretz is interested in an alliance with Ayelet Shaked and Naftali Bennett, and Bennett is unwilling to run in the same list as Otzma Yehudit.
