Some kind of confusion between topology and politics led a lot of people to claim some kind of victory against the right wing in these elections. Seen from the outside, however, the set of values defended by the distinct political forces is the only perspective that can help classifying those forces. And the conclusion is very clear, the left became a footnote. The only reason for some forces to get a seat at the center and left wing of the Knesset is that there are not enough available chairs in its right wing. So, why the surprise about Lapid ? Is it just to prepare the ground for a later claim that Lapid betrayed the true feelings of those who voted for him ? Sorry, but Lapid's positions, now as before, do represent very well those true feelings.
