zionist forever   (01.18.13)
2. Must be a funny feeling to see oneself as: "NOT BIBI"
tom ,   tel aviv   (01.18.13)
and that's about all one can say/propose to the voter :-)) ?!!
3. Always will be Stalemate
Zecharia   (01.18.13)
Labors peace plan will be rejected by the Palestinians the Kihadi are against it and the FatahBaath even Hanma Ashwari wants almost full right of return to Israel whereas Israel cannot have Johadis and Fatah Ba'ath in Judaea and Samaria. A truce though can work with massive Jewish US Quartet and Arab League Security for Jew Arab And Internationalist Human Rights Advocates .
4. Oslo in itself is enough reason never to vote for Labor.
Chaim ,   Israel   (01.18.13)
Shimon Peres, Avraham Burg...there are countless other reasons never to vote for Labor. Labor hasn't been a worthwhile party since the days of Golda Meir. It would serve Israel best by disappearing.
5. Labor party
Leib ,   Jewish country   (01.18.13)
The labor party is at its last breath so they run around like pigs squealing and selling out to other country's shame on all thoses that vote for labor
6. well, at least she is consistent
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (01.18.13)
7. there was a stalemate with barak, olmert, livni...
scott ,   ramat gan, israel   (01.18.13)
shelly is too stupid or naive to get it.
8. The real labor.
michael Pielet ,   raanana, Israel   (01.18.13)
Merav Michaeli a superb propagandist. Every word out of her mouth either a distortion or lie. I like Shelly, she is cute, however too inexperienced to lead the goverment and nation. Shelly should start with something she may comfortably handle, perhaps city councilwomen.
9. Bibi must be doing something....
mindRider ,   The Free World   (01.18.13)
.....extremely well if he so scares the s**t out of the left that instead of finding reasons to promote voting for them they only try to find reasons not to vote for him.
10. labour
jack ,   NETANYA ISRAEL   (01.18.13)
I have decided ,I must vote against BIBI ,and it will be for Labour,
11. I would rather have a stalemate than give, give and give and
Zev ,   Israel   (01.18.13)
get nothing in return. Sorry we do get something in return - more violence and Israelis killed.
12. how does one become the leader of Labor,
brian ,   tel aviv   (01.18.13)
without having ever labored a day in her life? Anyone who believes this woman is on the side of or can even relate to the hard working people of this country is just dumb. It's not who's on the Labor list that matters, it's who's running the Labor campaign that matters, look into this and you will see for yourself who Shelly really represents, elites from the U.S., who's agenda is not in our best interests. Shelly and Livni are both sock puppets.
13. Vote for shelly,zippy or yair and vote for
jason white ,   afula,israel   (01.18.13)
surrender. We cannot allow these leftists and "central bloc" ever to govern us. It would be the end of Israel.
14. Professor Lielenbloom poll
Poll: No big changes: Bibi-Bennet 44:15 Yahimovich -Barak 14:0 Lapid - Mofaz 9:2 Livni--Meretz 5:4 Shas 12 Eldad/Ben-Ari 0
15. Dissappointing
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (01.18.13)
Yehimovitch, in the Leftist tradition, dissappoints by ignoring reality and thinking that the voters have a short memory. Apparent from economic stagnation and government corruption, what happened during the time Kadima ruled Israel together with Labor? There a "stalemate" despite endless concessions by Kadima/Labor and two lost wars. More importantly, the Kadima/Labor government was found guilty of war crimes by Goldstein.
16. her lack of experience shows through
zionist forever   (01.18.13)
If Shelly had any understanding of Israeli politics she would realise its a dirty game and getting to be in a coalition with parties you like is rare at best so don't be miss moral try influence things as senior minster rather than a powerless opposition leader. If Bibi does win and she sticks to her guns on not joining a coalition on morality grounds make the new girls from the extreme left like Stav Shafir and mad Micheli happy but for most party members prefer to be in the coalition to morals and at the next primary they will ditch her just like Kadima did to Livni.
17. Another Jack voting for Labor
Jack Klaber ,   R. Hasharon, Israel   (01.18.13)
It boils down to a simple question. Do you want a change or not? For a change only Labor is capable of achieving this. No, Shelly and consorts are not the ultimate dream team, but the best that is now available to us. All these TB'ers here being soooooo afraid of a change that they will chose anyone who promises to keep the wolf pack abay. I hope Labor will have the opportunity to try for a different approach in many fields of government. Our enemies will never sign a peace treaty with us, but we might be able to live happily for many years having some kind of hudna if we show strength and self asureness in our country. Just barricading ourselves behind rigid ideas as Bibi wants us to do is akin to the Bar-Lev line in 1969 which was overrun in 1973…
18. 12
zionist forever   (01.18.13)
If your a journalist, celebrity, Histadrut man or idealist who doesn't understand how the real world works then its very easy to become the leader of Labor. Maybe next time they should go with mad Michele, if she promises to flash he bra for each Knesset seat Labor wins.
19. Voting for Labor is voting for disaster.
Chaim ,   Israel   (01.18.13)
Voting for Labor is a sure way to bring disaster upon Israel. Labor is a far left party dedicated to: * pretending our genocidal foes are our "peace partners". * Dedicated to ceding our ancestral heartland and trimming our waist to a suicidal 9 miles. * Turning Israel into a socialst nightmare like Greece.
