re: #686 Spare O’Lake

Boy, I hope you are correct. But then how is it that Kadima and Labour are still polling as well as they are? It still looks like a horse race to me.

It’s a complicated mess, their political system. It’s parliamentary (holdover from the English) and not like the two-party system in America. Israel Beiteinu, Shas, and maybe Meretz will unite with Likud and form a majority government, as I have been told. Of course there will be a lot of horse trading, but Netanyahu ought to emerge as the leader.

Of course, anything can still happen before the election.
