Transitory stars in the political sky
Why the Likud, a democratic party with strong roots among the Israeli electorate, agreed to share a ticket with a one-man party is anyone's guess. The merger is bound to lose votes.
It has been said, tongue in cheek, that one should never make a forecast, especially about the future. I would not dare to forecast the coming election results, except to guess that they will probably not differ by much from the recent opinion polls. But I will stick my neck out about election results in the more distant future.
