1. Any election getting rid of house destroying barak is good.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (05.02.12)
2. Poll figures not credible
Besalel ,   Great Neck   (05.02.12)
There is not a single person reading this article that believes that Labor, Kadima and Lapid will win 39 seats together or that Meretz will go from 3 to 5. Israeli pollsters have been repeatedly inaccurate for over ten years running. It is far more realistic to believe that Kadima/Labor/Lapis will garner fewer than 30 seats together; that Meretz will come back with its 3 seats, the Arabs with 11 and the right wing/religious with 75 seats or so with over 35 going to Likud.
3. The whole world
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (05.02.12)
will laugh on Israel, if Tibi, Zahalka and other arab terrorists will be members of the Knesset again.
4. this is not a good date: remember 4 Sept 1997 BenYehuda Mall
Wolf ,   Israel   (05.02.12)
...And it will become clear exactly why this is not a good date. Further you may all wish to remember that 4 September 1997 was during Prime Minister Mr. Netanyahu's first term as Prime Minister (1996-1999)
5. #2 pollsters
Israeli pollsters are great. They predicted that Shimon Peres would be elected PM every time he ran!
6. never has disaffected populations been so empowered
Avramele   (05.02.12)
Its early and polls change but the gap between left and right is now a handful of seats. a lot can change to move the needle away from Bibi and his settler and haredi allies: Sephardim voting for Mofaz or Deri catching on; a strong arab turnout; young voters finally showing up on election day, Labor voters coming home. the Russian vote splitting if Lieberman is indicted and can't run. this is one year where each voter can honestly believe that her or his vote counts.
7. To # 1 Bunnie
Rachel ,   US   (05.02.12)
There's always the fear that Netanyahu will appoint loser Barak as the DM even if he does not make the Knesset.
8. why are the arabs parties
david ,   Jerusalem   (05.02.12)
counted all as one, but you dont do the same with shas and UTJ? i guess cause you see them as being all the same, that's very disrespecful
9. #8
Malone ,   Hfx   (05.03.12)
Maybe because they don't deserve any respect?? Ya think??
10. if knesset disbands, what happens to legislation?
chava ,   yerushalayim   (05.03.12)
I don't understand. If the knesset session ends next week, what happens between then and October or so when the new government is formed? If we don't have a knesset, what will happen to Migron & to the Ulpana neighborhood in Beit El, which need legislation (or something) to keep from being destroyed (chas v'shalom.)
11. @10 what u r asking about is year's worth of civics lessons.
you need to learn about Parlimentary government and the best way to do that is to go to the library and get some books on the topic. Good Luck
