10 Talkbacks for this article
1. No one to vote for?????
Mark ,   London, UK   (01.22.13)
The problem is that there are too many to vote for. Here in UK we really only have two, plus a few no hopers to garner the protest votes. While that might appear to limit choice, it does mean that parties are broad chuches based on general principles, and to win an election they are forced towards the centre where most electors sit. It may not be perfect but works for us.
2. I voted and then went to buy a couple of items in mall
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (01.22.13)
You cannot believe how many people (of all ages) are in the mall today. True, it is a sales day, but I saw so many packages being bought - how can people complain they don't have enough money ? Also, all cafes and restaurants were bursting with clients. Israeli economics is not suffering.
3. Time to take a break
sam sweiry ,   Eastbourne UK   (01.22.13)

4. Vote which one?
Ben David Shlomo   (01.22.13)
I saw that Netanyahu took the shark with him to vote.
5. Those that never served in the security
jason white ,   afula,israel   (01.22.13)

6. Elections
graczek ,   Maryland, USA   (01.22.13)
It does not matter who is elected. The real winners in the end will be those who soon will liberate all of Palestine from the Zionist yoke. That outcome is assured.
7. Barbara who did you see sitting in cafe today?
People with loans and credits on their shoulders so they can enjoy stuffing their lives up with more and more things?
8. #6 Graczk, Maryland USA
Tova ,   Canada   (01.22.13)
So your vote is for Israel. Palestine refers to the Jews of Israel. The name was invented by Horadian during the Roman Empire. The palenstine which you refer to today have a homeland - it's called the Aegean Sea. so thanks for voting for Israel.
9. To 6 graczek!!!!
Jack B. ,   USA   (01.22.13)
Same old tired drivel! Read Genesis 12:1-3! I hear hell's a hot place?! Oh, yeah...Israel isn't going anywhere--period!
10. Comment 6 moron-did u know?
P'd off yid ,   South of tel aviv-Is   (01.22.13)
That polls conducted of "palestinians" living in Israel 73% prefer to live under Israeli rule rather than arab? You know cause' under us at least they can vote, work, get an education and even be gay? Not so much their Arab cousins elsewhere. As for the vote today that you said does not matter- we voted precisely to ensure attitudes such as yours do not become prevalent within in our leftist political echelons. We voted today to rid ourselves of anti zionists and liberate the land of usurpers from without.
