1. Pathetic
Jake ,   Dallas   (02.13.19)
They have so little support among Jewish Israelis they desperately themselves with those who would destroy the state, all for a few Knesset seats. How sad.
2. Live as a Jew or die as a Liberal - that is the question
eli ,   tel aviv   (02.13.19)
If the Nation-State Declaration (improperly labelled a "Law") is "a disgrace to Jews", there is no Jewish State and there soon would be no Jews. The fact is that Palestinians are not peace-loving and Jewish Liberals are self-hating.
3. Without Arab parties, Israel won't be able to exist too long

4. You Gotta Be Kidding!
Al T. Cacker ,   Maale Adumim   (02.13.19)
Only three political directions? Nah, you forgot the one which includes the Arabs who want to destroy Israel and expel the Jews. Actually, this is the Joint List! You are guaranteeing the death of any future liberal ideology in Israel.

Your new party will be known as the "Treason Party". Jews will then know for sure that Leftism stands for the destruction of their homeland and their exile. This idiocy will guarantee an ignominious death for Labor.
5. Choice is centre-right or centre-left with religious parties
Sam ,   Montreal   (02.13.19)
The centre-left doesn't do anything to endear itself to the religious parties so the centre-right forms the government.
6. The desperate Left looking to strike a Faustian bargain?
Cameron   (02.13.19)
7. Kahane warned us of this evil alliance 40 yrs ago
Chaim ,   Israel   (02.13.19)
In "They Must Go", the late Rabbi Kahane warned us of the coming evil alliance between hostile Arabs and self destructive leftist Jews 40 years ago. The question is: what are we going to do about it?
8. The story of Yossi Beilin, the Meretz's false prophet
Gavriel Rechov ,   Swingate, Kent UK   (02.13.19)
Behold the man of perdition, the guy that after to serve in the army headquarters during the Yom Kippur War lost his faith and he became an atheist.

The same man that secretly, without informing Shimon Peres, his superior, began the Oslo Process, which led to the establishment of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Gaza. Later, under PM Yitzhak Rabin, he formulated with Mahmoud Abbas, the "Beilin/Abu Mazen understandings" as a basis for the final settlement between Israel and a Palestinian state.

After the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, Beilin served in the leftish governments of Shimon Peres and Ehud Barak; but urgently needing to be at the left of the left he joined Meretz, party that he headed from 2004–2008.

In 2003, after a lengthy process with PA minister Abed Rabbo, he signed the Geneva Accords, creating the structure of a permanent agreement between Israel and an independent Palestinian state. Meanwhile, he campaigned to transfer the ownership of the Shebah Farms to Lebanon and to pardon terrorist Marwan Barghouti.

He was the only Israeli that issued a condolence message on the death of Yasser Arafat.

In 2016, Beilin had the effrontery to atrociously criticize the legacy of Benjamin Ben-Eliezer shortly after his death, calling him "an aggressive, destructive politician."

With such a "brilliant" curriculum, no one will be surprised to learn that France honored him with the Legion of Honor, no doubt that for his great contribution to the efforts of nations to obliterate the Jewish state.

This is briefly the story of the man of perdition, the guy that has most damaged Israel in its 70 years of life, the amazing story of the wrong man who destroyed everything he touched.

The deactivation of such a disastrous legacy will need the work of several generations of Israelis, which probably will not completely neutralize it. Meanwhile, his hidden time bombs will continue to explode.

Now it's Meretz's turn.
9. One word: “Quislings”....
10. Like every other free nation, left allies with evil for gain
11. Antisemitic left support for extremists arrives in israel
12. One must be devoid of any semblance of intelligence or
ability to even think straight, in order to form alliance with the snake in the garden....
Such are the Meretz members/voters.
Fortunately for the Jewish nation: very few and getting fewer.
13. Like democrats in USA left has to pretend its center to win
Once they win everything changes....
14. Some real courage needed here
Bertram ,   London, UK.   (02.16.19)
Hard line Zionist rejectionists must take the lead from Iran and other theocratic nation-states and fight to establish the 'Jewish Republic of Israel'. Non-Jewish individuals and groups, at best, must be politically marginalised (call it apartheid if you want) or expelled. At least that is an honest approach. Just don't pretend to be in any way a democracy.
15. The Israel's Peace Plan
Sarah ,   Ashkelon   (02.16.19)
The next government of Israel will only have a duty to fulfill, and must carry it out in the shortest time possible.

As soon as the government is formed, it will must proclaim that all the conversations and agreements reached to date with Palestinians are void and null, as well as all the resolutions issued by the international community.

The following step will be to demand the unconditional surrender of the scattered Palestinian communities and the delivery of their weapons as the first indispensable conditions to achieve and enduring and sustainable peace accords.
