Only 60 without him now. Things will shift around tomorrow with the last quarter million votes counted.

I see now. The numbers I was looking at had Likud at 37, and Balad not making it in.

Lieberman is a major headache if the coalition hinges on him.

Bibi can get a very narrow coalition without Lieberman now, if he includes Kahlon. Not saying that he's going to do it, but it's possible.

It would be a long stretch to call Shas מפלגה החרדית ביותר. Accepting ministerial positions, especially in the Ministry of Religious Affairs, or at the Ministry of Interior, presents very serious Halachic problems.


Aren't all of their decisions based on the psokim of their rabbonim? Is Rabbi Sholom Cohen (or Rabbi Ovadia Yosef) less charedi than the rabbonim of ג?

Chabad voting for mizrachists time and again with excuses, just obscures that their sympathies lie there and that's it.

You have Satmar lunatics, Charedi mainstream, Chabad chardalim, and mizrachists.


Back to work.....

B"H, now that we have a dose of sinas chinam this thread is a real Israeli election thread.

So Shas?

Even worse from a shleimus ha'aretz perspective.

As for the New Right, they didn't really put forth a compelling story. They are seen as spineless opportunistic troublemakers that eventually do the right thing.

Why would someone vote for them rather than Likud? Did they make that case?

Can someone explain, how this election helps anything? The previous government was vary narrow with approx 66 seats. Lieberman "quit" so a few months later Bibi called for new elections.
Wont it be the same way now all over again?
Bibi will create "right" government with the same narrow coalition, and then again Lieberman can bolt in a few months and were right back to were we were.

It helps with Bibi's legal troubles.

It definitely helps with the greater numbers of Shas and UTJ (with Shas pre-pledging support for Netanyahu, which wasn't that obvious in the past. Maybe UTJ should learn from them and make a similar pledge in the future).

Im pretty sure I remember seeing ג did pledge for Bibi. They for sure said that they would never sit in a coalition with Lapid.

What do you want him to say? Let's wait for final results so we can concede defeat?

He's taking advantage of his high point in the cycle to create some buzz, but it will fade away in the face of reality and they all know it!.

To add, if he succeeds in getting the story to be about how he won, he has an increased (although still slight) chance of forming a coalition.

Anyone know anything about Rabbi Nesanel Sommers (from Monsey I think)? A caterer I'm considering using said he gives their hashgocho

Remember seeing that a protracted divorce with a straight split of stocks would have been very detrimental to the value of amazon.

Right. Which is why she gave him control of her vote, but why did she have to leave him with ownership of the extra 25%?

Because she chose to settle for 25%.

What reason does she have for doing that? Goodness of her heart? (Asking honestly, not critically)

It's also extreme that bein hazemanim goes from י"ג ניסן till isru chag.

Why? (unless they have bochurim who have to travel far, and they don't accommodate them). Do they have a summer vacation?
