1. Reaching critical mass
Volvi   (01.07.13)
I believe Benett. Bibi cannot ever be trusted. He is at heart a leftie and he will sell out Israel to the childish whims of the left as long as he remains in the PM seat, thats all that matters to him and of course a Nobel Peace Prize sometime with the coveted title "Peacemaker". But he still hasnt got the numbers only if he sells out to Shas $$$ and would Livni and Lapid go with that, who knows. He definitely doesnt want to go with Benett, theres personal animosity there. I see Likud dropping even further now. People who are against jewish expulsions will no longer trust him and will flock to Benett or Eldads Otzma. Who know he may end up with the largest party, wont that throw a wrench into the works. This is the most critical election I have seen to date not to mention the Iranian issue hanging over us like a Damocles sword.
2. We need an extreme right-wing government
Michael ,   Haifa   (01.07.13)
...only then will the world step in to save us from our mad selves
3. Don't Worry Bennett
Zechariah   (01.07.13)
First you will get the Feiglin block then anything the Palestinians can be offered they will reject .what is needed are preparations vaccinations against apocalyptic scenarious and a halving of the social gap.
4. Vote for Bennet
A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (01.07.13)
if you want another war.
5. Pretty clear that Lapid is setting himself up
Giora Me'ir ,   USA   (01.07.13)
to be a lap dog in the new right wing government. The fewer votes for Yesh Atid and the more for Labor and Hatnuah, the better.
6. Article about Bennett?
Adam ,   Israel   (01.07.13)
Slow news day Ynet? I could have sworn this article was supposed to be about Bennett, not rehashing the left-winger playing pretend government.
7. #2,3,4 don't worry lefties, we won't let them hurt you.
Yosi ,   Gilo-Jerusalem   (01.07.13)
8. The mask
Eli Emet ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (01.07.13)
Bennett is just a mask hiding a group of extremests and that includes dangerous and delusinal rabbis.Bad for Israel and the world.
9. #2, #4
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (01.07.13)
Spoken like a true socialist: Democracy is useless because you can't trust the people. The people mistakenly see Grad rockets on Rishon, bus bombs in Tel Aviv and 50% of Sderot children with PTSD as a problem. We must stop democracy and appoint a council of foreigners to tell us what to do. #4: reality vs narrative Intifada I started under Left, stopped by Shamir. First Oslo war (Bus bomb war) started under Left, stopped by Netanyahu Second Oslo war started under Left, stopped by Right-wing Sharon IDF defeats in Lebanon II and Cast Lead under Leftist Olmert junta. Do you see a pattern here?
10. Who is that handsome man in the picture?:
Mark ,   London, UK   (01.07.13)
The main page has an incredibly handsome and sexy man in the main picture and I can't see him in the story. :-(
11. Shelly is stupid if she thinks being opposition is serving
jrebecca ,   modiin   (01.07.13)
her electorate.
12. Bibi has not sold off parts of Israel in this term
jrebecca ,   modiin   (01.07.13)
but he also starts things and does not mean to finish them - like E1. Yes he has to work with his coalition, but I'm not sure if I trust what he says. As for Shelly and Tzipi, we can trust what they say - they will give away anything for a meaningless piece of paper with the word peace somewhere on it.
13. Livni... this is your democracy????
Dana Rothschild ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (01.07.13)
I hear from you and from Sheli only "we have to block", "we have to stop", "we are the alternative", Likud is a danger" and so on and so on... where is the will of the israeli society in your talking and thinking? we all see the majority moving to the right... and we all see, that you disregard this... you disregards the israeli voter... "we have democracy but I decide" this is what you are saying...
14. Nothing new there. Bibi is a "closet Lefty"
DT ,   TA Israel   (01.07.13)
15. so far, the only people who actually gave up land were
the right (Sinai and Gaza were both given by likud)
16. #13 Not Just the Livni & Shelli Circus
Norbus ,   Jerusalem   (01.07.13)
The whole politics system stinks, as it transitioned from founding fathers to acrobats and comedians who show consideration to their own whims and Egos A root and branch reform to Parties by restricting numbers through deposits per candidate, making MKs more relevant to area they represent and cutting out the blackmail
17. #2 Michael: Refresh your memory!
18. Michael #2, The typical talk of 'bogdim'
Jake   (01.07.13)
Bereft of little or no domestic support, always searching for powerful foreigners to impose their agenda on Israel from the outside.
19. A leftist liberal humanitarian government-BOO! Scared you!
You're scaring only ,   yourselves   (01.07.13)
20.  Fear knocks at their door
Nora Tel Aviv   (01.07.13)
Bibi becomes both the Left`s and the Right`s nightmare. Some of the Left still dream that the impossible , forming a block, will realize. But more realist ones try to double- cross their Leftist partners and enter the coalition at the last moment. On the far Right , they fear that Bibi might prefer a centrist coalition to a center-right one.
21. #2 Michael: Refresh your memory!
Tom W ,   USA   (01.07.13)
When your "beloved world" stepped in Auschwitz was established. Some Jew compels us to think of Talleyrand's words on the Bourbons: "They learned nothing and forgot nothing". Remember Haaretz editor David Landau's infamous curse by which asked Condoleeza Rice to "Rape Israel". The delusional mindset of the Jewish hard left is a pathological issue. Their quest for self destruction is on par with medieval fanaticism. Frankly what good resulted when the "world" stepped in to tech a lesson to the Jews?
22. Terminology is to confuse
Paul ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (01.07.13)
Centralist in Israel is the Left, plain and simple. Moderate in Israel is the Left. Rational is the Left. political suicide with Islamic-haters is the Left, vote to save Israel from all our internal appeasers, and Hamas supporters.
23. Israel never gets what it votes for!!!!!
Miriam ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (01.07.13)
It's clear, voting for Bibi is voting for more of Sharon-type deception. The country votes Nationalist-Right and Bibi betrays, and betrays. Hasn't anyone learned yet?
24. "Supermarket Peace" is a good example of "horseshoe theory"
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (01.07.13)
"rather than the far left and the far right being at opposite and opposing ends of a linear political continuum, they in fact closely resemble one another, much like the ends of a horseshoe"
25. #2. Michael, you reveal depravity of Israeli left.
Chaim ,   Israel   (01.07.13)
#2 Michael. You want the rest of the world to "save Israel". On what planet do you live? Did the world save Israel when Israel faced innumerable invasions from Arab armies? Is the world racing to save Israel from Iranian nukes? Israel must save herself,as she always has. Michael, you reveal the true depravity of the Israeli left.
26. Bennet is stupid
Moshe ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (01.07.13)
Bennet is an stupid man that doesn't know what to say. Come back to your beloved USA and enjoy with your friends of the Tea party
27. Israels deadly demographics duopoly
StevieT ,   USA   (01.07.13)
The 1-2 'demographic knockout punch' that threatens Israel's future are: 1. Seculars, moderates and highly talented have, to some degree, left, want out, or (in the diaspora) won't emigrate to Israel in its current state. That leaves the hard right to fuel her growth. 2. If the lust for Judea and Samaria result in its incorporation into Israel, there is only one outcome, an Arab majority and a one State solution. IMHO, this 'Hydra can only be defeated through a coalition of all sane Isreali's into a centrist block. Anything else is just a crap roll.
28. it sounds like something bibi the rat would do
jack bauer   (01.08.13)
never miss an opportunity to look weak and persecute jews....
29. Shut up you silly man
Haim ,   TA   (01.08.13)
30. Benett's supermarket peace
Pibe ,   Israel   (01.09.13)
Bennett says that it is the settlers thosee "who drive alongside them in Route 60, stand next to them in supermarket checkouts and work with them." He forgets to say that the settlers also grab their land.
