Virtually nobody wants Labor in the government. So Shelly's decision is of little to no political impact. However, I would be happy to see Labor destroy itself. Israel will benefit from it.
2. She declares like a dictator. The Party doesn't count.
Obviously, Yechimovich doesn't understand politics. She continues her practice from the time when she interviewed people on the TV and didn't let them talk. Labor will not recover until it gets some wise political leadership at the top, not bumbling amateurs. Yair Lapid may be the one to consolidate the Center in Israel if he derives lessons from Labor's mistakes. It is too bad a young person like Yechimovich is inflexible and is ruining the Old Party.
3. Fig Leaf
As the great Master Orator, himself, would have put it, "Lapid looks like a fig leaf, talks like a fig leaf and walks like a fig leaf"

5. Social gap Demilitirized state
In the Arab mega cities which have the capacity for five million Arabs and a hundred thousand farmers each on Ten Dunams plots not quite 500 thousand dollars can carry out intensive farming with green revolutionary techniques with livestock and a lot of olive and citrus trees which will be watched and guarded by hashomer nicks who will keep out the price tag fascists and jihadi Fatah Ba'ath counter revolutionary war provocateurs. Meanwhile the social gap will be halved each term of the Knesset if a Huge Coalition is formed.
6. Now if they could just dump the leeches from Shas,
Israel might truly have a proud government and a government to be proud of.
7. so says the leader of the political prostitute party
Lapid is a political prostitute who is willing to do anything for the right price. If he is made a senior minister he will join anybodies coalition and support anybodies policies.
Tzippi Whiteflag carrier, Leiberman facist and a sundry of other loosers, I AM SOOOO PROUD TO LIVE IN ISRAEL AND BE A PART OF THE PROCESS.
9. Zionist social policy Is leftist!
Lieberman betrays his ignorance. Shelley is to the right of the Labor founders of the state and the FM is well to the right of his presumed icon Jabotinsky, who while not a social democrat, believed in a strong safety net built around jobs, education, Housing, food and health. Oh and btw, Moses Hess reintered at the cemetery at Degania was not only the earliest of zionists but a founding thinker of social democracy. The history of practical Zionism and practical social democracy are intertwined.
10. #7, Imagination of a demagogue is "forever"
How do you know what Lapid will do, who he will join, which policies he will support? He has not been an MK nor a Minister ever, on the other hand you've been saying the same shtuyot over and over again. Like any cheap demagogue you think highly of yourself.
11. No 8
One of the most cherished liberties in a Democratic State as Israel, is the freedom, every resident enjoys there.. You are free to leave at any time you want, shadoil, especially if you suspect a sign of fascism or someone behaving as faschist in the Jewish State....
And if Lieberman is a fascist, you really must run to "greener pastures"...Oh, and please, don't preach us about our history, ok ? I'll give you some practical Zionism.. Last time checked, Israel is the only Democracy in the ME, where you can call anybody anything and will not be arrested or discriminated..
Thank G-d our Judea ans Samaria is populated again by their rightful owners:Jewish Families, who are back to dwell in peace on their ancient land and who are trying to live in peace with their neighbors...
Please keep in mind, that this board is too intelligent to buy your lies and whining...
12. to 10
Exactly the same, could be said about you, Michael...Do you think, you are immuned, just because you are a leftist ?
13. #9 - Yachimovich and Obama are both communists!
They would get along well and refer to each other as, "Comrade".
Communism failed everywhere and it even failed in Israel.
The kibbutzim were Marxist, and voluntary, and even there it failed.

14. Amazed that Labor party still exists
What I wish for is a secular, but not Anti-Religious Left wing party that is good on environment and social issues, but against OSLO and land for peace.

15. Lapid is learning fast!
A Cabinet Seat,a Cabinet Seat, my morals and ethics for a Cabinet Seat!
A well, he is a politician, I suppose and in politics, left, right or center, when it come to power, there is nothing more YES than NO or in some cases, NYET means DA!!

16. lapid and his father
lapid's father was an olmert enabler, a weak minded leader without a clue on security and in my opinion dirty.
lapid can formulate all kinds of proposals which amount to hot air cause the goal of the arabs is to remove israel, kill thousands, boot the rest out and keep a few like olmert and livni and peres as court dzimmis. lapid also like haber, like amir oren, like olmert did apparently no combat service.
Oslo the gaza withdrawal and rockets and what morsi says about us is enough for me. Enough of this already.
17. N0.3 - Master Orator???
Who exactly is this Master Orator about whom you are exclaiming? I do not recall any figure in Israeli politics known by this title. Pericles of Athens? No. Now I am curious about whom YOU are talking!
