If Israel Was A True Democracy...

...the politicians would be rushing to follow what the people want, like Panel poll: 67% Disengagement failure, 66%:29% Oppose disengagement in Judea and Samaria, instead of continuing with policies which so weaken our country that the State of Israel may not survive.

A Democracy is supposed to be the "will of the people," not of the media.

We have a very dangerous media here and most of the politicians are even worse.

There isn't even one political party I really trust nor anyone I'd like to be Prime Minister. As impressive as Bibi Netanyahu can be when speaking, he wasn't a successful Prime Minister. There's nobody else on the right. Oops, don't say "right" to Bibi, he likes to think of himself as center.

But our people would prefer someone who isn't playing games, someone who believes fully in our rights to be here and isn't willing to take risks, just to placate others.

In the latest parsha pages (actually last week's), an article told us about three current initiatives aiming to unite a religious coalition now, before the elections, may they come asap.

Baruch Hashem, Rav Shmuel Eliyahu was quoted as saying something like, 'not only secular people can be prime ministers'.

I'm hoping someone orange does run for PM. If Labour can run for PM and still join the coalition, then so can a 'real' orange coalition, not the the tired ones that get formed last minute.

Before you go much further, I have to correct something. "Orange" isn't what it's cracked up to be. The "orange leaders" were total disasters.
