הצביעו מעט למעלה מ 50 אחוז. More than 50% voter turn-out.My husband and I voted. I took pictures, but they will bli neder be posted later. We have been voting in internal Likud Elections even before there was a Likud. I don't know about him, but I only voted Likud once. This may not make sense to you, except if you know the history of the party.
We joined the Herut חרות Party, Jerusalem Branch, a couple of weeks or days after making aliyah to Israel. That was in 1970, and Haim Corfu was head of the branch. He felt so privileged that we, Betarim, olim chadashim, new immigrants from New York, had joined the Party that he insisted on driving us home to the Maon Betar in the Old City. He apologized for his inexperienced driving, having only gotten his license a short time before. Later on he became Israel's Minister for Transportation.
Herut was the main political group in the Gahal Party, Gush Herut-Liberallim, the Herut-Liberal Block. Just before the 1973 elections, another party, Free Center, joined, and the expanded party was called Likud. We later on speeded up our citizenship process to vote Likud in the 1973 elections, which due to the Yom Kippur War was postponed until Dec. 31, 1973. We were abroad, in England doing Jewish Youth Work for Betar in 1977 and missed those elections.
After Menachem Begin became Prime Minister, due to the Likud's surprise victory in 1977, he quickly started his courtship of Egypt's Sadaat, sealingit with the gift of the Sinai, and my voting for Likud was history.
Begin's Camp David Accords entailed destroying Jewish Life in the Sinai, and his successor as Likud Prime Minister, Arik Sharon, declared Disengagement which banished Jews from Gush Katif and gave the Land to the Arab terrorists of Gaza. For that reason I don't vote for the Likud Party. No Leftist Party has done more to endanger and destroy Jewish Life in the Land of Israel.
I'm afraid of what a now strengthened Bibi Netanyahu has planned. Read Arlene Kushner's latest article Fear and Rumor. Also read Caroline Glick's Hamas and the Washington establishment.
