ISRAELIS DECIDED... Now What?

Forming a government after elections in Israel can be a lengthy process. Twelve different parties, among which, by the way, are three different Arab parties [does that make Israel an aparthied State?] have earned their votes into the 19th Knesset, first official session of which was yesterday. 

As a result of a highest voter turnout in a decade (67.79%), over 40 new Members of Knesset are joining Israel's legislative branch.

We at Maoz Media have prepared a couple of videos and a blog to help you make sense of the Israeli Election.

Naftali Bennett, a former Netanyahu loyalist, and leader of the Baet Yehudi (Jewish Home) party came away with 12.

It is believed that those two parties took away votes from Likud. Even many who consider themselves fans of Netanyahu voted for Bennett or Lapid. Why?

THE STRATEGY OF VOTING IN ISRAEL

As most people assumed, Netanyahu came away with the most votes. And most Israelis approve of the way he has handled Israel’s security. However on several key domestic issues he has let down the people. So, with the assumption that he would win, they voted for those champion domestic issues, hoping to influence the next government. What are those issues?...
