Party history:

 

The party was established in 1999 by Avigdor Lieberman a year after he quit the post of Prime Minister Netanyahu's bureau chief, in a
bid to attract mostly Russian immigrant votes. The party won four Knesset seats in the subsequent elections and in 2000 merged with the National Union faction. Lieberman was later appointed as National Infrastructure Minister in Ariel Sharon's government but quit at the beginning of 2002 after charging Sharon was not acting forcefully enough against the Palestinians.

 

In 2003, the National Union won seven Knesset seats and Lieberman was appointed transportation minister. He was fired by Sharon in July 2004 after objecting to the disengagement plan.

 

In 2005, Israel Our Home announced it will run independently in the upcoming elections and ended the merger with the National Union.
