I'm not an Israeli so my opinion doesn't matter, but he won't enter a coalition unless they agree to legalize weed??
I hope he doesn't pass the minimum threshold.

False....besides Bibi today said he is going to start looking into legalizing weed as well.

Yup he'll do or say anything that'll get him another vote & apologize after the election to whoever was offended.

I dont know what anyone sees in him anymore, he reminds me of Ehud Barak, who also didnt know when to quit until the writing was all over the wall.

Just wait until Trump makes him give back land for his 'peace plan

Your "analysis" seems extremely shallow.

Not one of the clowns that are vying to replace him (or have done so in the last decade) comes close to his abilities in any area that makes a difference. And the vast majority of the electorate is aware of this.

I personally was thinking Bennett but after reading the Zeut platform I am more inclined to vote Zeut.
Besides voting for a party you're also voting for it's members and for sure for it's leader.

Feiglin is serious weirdo for the lack of a better word. He's impossible to work with and therefore it will be impossible to keep a coalition going with him.
His #2 Cham Amsalem isn't much better. They're both extremely difficult and complicated individuals, the type that no one wants them in their shul....

The seemingly צד השווה of Bennet and Feiglin/Zehut is that they rely solely on their own judgment, rather than submitting to a Halachic authority. (which is similar to the underlying problem of Zionism which is based on כוחי ועוצם ידי, but that's a separate issue).

No. Which is why Torah observant Jews shouldn't be voting for him, but due to his qualifications, the parties that do submit to Halachic authorities should support him.

LOL his qualification is that he has longevity, which is an absurd reason to back him,
In fact the only reason people vote for him the pathetic reason they there's no one better. Basically fear of the unknown is why people vote for him, again a recipe for disaster because one day it'll be more convenient to sell out the Left/charedim & he'll have no problem in doing so.

The man has no spine all he's interested is staying in power.

People forget that he was the one that gave back a tremendous amount of land at
the Wye Accords

Do you really see him saying no to Trump if the deal he presents is bad.
I don't.

Should we have also supported David Ben-Gurion due to his qualifications?
