Israeli Election Campaign Heats Up, Left Wants Their Voters To Vote

Over the past couple of decades, there has been a decline in voter turnout especially in Israel's Leftist bastions.  I have no doubt that this summer's demonstrations for faux "social justice" have been designed to activate the lazy Left and start convincing them that they should vote and not use Election Day Holiday to vacation.
For the organizers to try to convince whomever that they aren't the "establishment" is such a joke con.  They control the media and/or the media control the protests.  Every Saturday night the scheduled programs have been bumped from the screens and alI we see are screaming Lefties demanding "social justice," as if they'd give some of their above-average salaries to those of us earning minimum wage.

Apparently, these "protests" are being orchestrated by professionals:

According to an investigative report by Maariv's Kalman Libeskind, the protests were engineered by a group of media strategists who are directed by prominent Democratic strategist Stanley Greenberg, a former adviser to Bill Clinton, John Kerry and others. Greenberg directed the strategists to create a protest that was not led by one specific group, in order to create social ferment. An unnamed left-wing leader would eventually step into this ferment and take the reins, Greenberg predicted.

The Israeli strategists reportedly include Boaz Gaon, Moshe Gaon and Eldad Yaniv, who worked in Ehud Barak's successful race for Prime Minister in 1999, also in cooperation with Greenberg. (complete article)

  • Who's paying these foreign professionals?
  • Who's ordering the the TV chanels to give the protests so much coverage?
I'd like the answers to those questions.

I can't answer your questions, but I can say that years ago, election day was a vacation day for friends of mine and me. We'd get up early, pack a picnic lunch, vote at our respective polling places, meet at a pre-arranged location and spend the rest of the day out hiking.

Rahel, you and your friends did the right thing by voting. Whomever you vote for is your business. This campaign is aimed towards those who didn't bother voting a statistically growing number.

a, yes, it seems like the US Dems hate Bibi.
Small correction. There was no "moshiach ben yosef."

I am sort of shocked that liberals in any country would sit out an election.

Liberals, at least in the US, typically turn out in droves.

Keli, the Israeli left isn't liberal and not all that Liberal either.

They don't care about anything other than their narrow worlds. This whole campaign has been to get them involved, engaged in politics.
