Shinui, they sound like the Libertarian Party in many ways.

Likud. Arik melech yisroel!

Shinui is maybe vaguely like a hawkish libertarian- capitalist, strong on defense/peace, and aggressively secular. (This last is the core of their message).

Meretz is now called Yachad. It is no longer primarily a social democratic party, but has transitioned into more of a "peace now at any cost" party.

I voted Likud in the poll but I am very undecided between Shinui and Likud.

I would vote Labor because I'm a great admirer of the late Yitzhak Rabin, one of the greatest and most valiant political leaders of modern history (I have his picture on my wall, just in front of me). Also because of historical tradition.
I never liked Shamir and Netanyahu.
Having said that, my vote for Labor would not be casted in stone. I would not vote for them if I considered that a Labor government would not provide the best assurance of security for Isreal. Perhaps if an election were held right now I would vote for Likud.

You don't have to live with him. He raises taxes and says he's helping the poor, but he's an obvious liar, he hasn't done anything. We will get rid of him soon. The only reason he's in office is because he had zero competition in the last election.
