There is a reserved seat for Gentiles, so Kara has it. (I asked KnessetJeremy; you really need to read his blog.)

I always vote Gimel (remember what I said about the letters going way back? You can see Gimel on the posters in the movie Saleh Shabati, an old satire by Ephraim Kishon about Israeli elections and the Sephardimass absorption. (And they used to show it to us schoolkids! Highly recommended.) The question is, who will Judith vote for?

I voted for Feiglin’s list, with one exception. (It was kept top secret until the last minute.) Honestly, I don’t know what the fuss is all about. There are only 12 people on it, and a lot of them are by mutual agreement with other factions. Also, to my knowledge, almost all of them are already in the Knesset.

But where is Katzeleh in Ichud?

There’s a higher probability that there actually are herds of unicorns roaming about in North Korea.

Does he?

As a matter of fact, Israel does recognize (by fiat of our runaway Supreme Court) homosexual marriage the same way id recognizes religious intermarriage – if it’s done abroad.

Sounds very interesting and very screwed up. I am pleased to hear you voted for Kara and I think I know who you took out. 😉 Unfortunately, it looks like he wont make the cut unless LB gets well over 40 seats, which they have about 7 weeks to accomplish. I have been unable to find lists beyond 22 seats for Likud members.

I am curious who you voted for. If you dont want to say it here, you can email it…or you can keep it secret.

Who are you planning to vote for in January? I am torn between LB and the party run by Bennett, whatever they are calling it now.

I don’t remember what prompted him to say such nonsense, but there you have it. Closets are for long-forgotten tennis rackets and really ugly Christmas sweaters, not people.

He’s the most libertarian Israeli politician I know of.

Mind you, I wouldn’t want him runnign the country, but I like the direction he would move in, and he’s less of a bigot than most of the others.

Very progressive of him, I must say. There are Log Cabin Republicans, so, in theory, there might be gay people in Israel who support Moshe Feiglin, too.
