The settlement expansions are destined at the moment to be slow a lot of Brinksmanship is going on.The election result and outcome will depend on Iran and the catostrophic danger of nuclear proliferation .
2. make finance minister
If Yuval Steinz is not kept on in the finance ministry then the job should go to Bennet as he is a self made millionaire so he understands buiness which is more than can be said for the rest of the potential ministers.
As a religious Jew himself he would probably make a good middle man when it comes to dealing with the religious parties.
3. A severe personality flaw
Bennett and the Netanyahus are the personification of pure arrogance

Enough already with this trouble making woman, I think we have heard quite enough of her over the years.

5. #3 please explain
I wanted to vote Yehimovitch, but her only jobs were journalist and junior MK, never sat in government, is on record supporting the big unions that are killing the middle class, and she did support Hezbolla. I think she is arrogant to think she can be a Minister, certainly PM.
I like Lapid, but he's a draft dodger and the only job he ever held he got from his father. I think he is arrogant to think he can be a Minister.
Livni is a professional politician who got her job from her father. She was surrounded by crooks (Olmert, Hirshzon, Hangebi, Sharons) but somehow saw nothing and heard nothing. She failed miserably as FM, and supports given Golan to the butcher Assad. I think she is arrogant to think she should not retire.
Bennet was never Minister, but he was PM-chief of staff, and he set up his own High-tech company that employed many people.
Netanyahu is far from perfect, but he is the longest serving Israeli PM. Looking just at the facts, he is Israel's best Prime Minister since 1992.
Now explain why I should vote for anyone but Bennet or Netanyahu. I and other voters need to know.

Good post i i.
Yahimovitch keeps phoning my mobile (which I have now closed)
4 times yesterday & 3 today!
Bibi will get my vote next Monday.
Will gladly explain. First, I agree with you that Yechimovich, Livni and Lapid suffer from the same personality flaw as Bennett and Netanyahu. So I am left with a small party on the left, whose leaders are relatively modest, honest and decent, as opposed to the others mentioned above.
You summed it up perfect and its actually kind of depressing shows to see the kind of characters are looking to run the country these days.
Two with neither army, business or political experience
One is arrogant, singe handedly destroyed a party she was leader of and was a lousy minister when she got the chance.
One who has experience in business & military combat but he is a political rookie.
The only other one worth voting for has been PM twice, has experience in combat and didn't rely on daddy to get him where he is.
Whatever happened to the good old days when you had characters like Begin & Shamir?
9. #3 I think Obama is personification of pure arrogance
but he's not running for Israel's Prime minister position - or is he?
