A space to share stuff I like mostly about the Middle East, human rights and religion.

 

New Haaretz poll (Hebrew)
Kadima (center-left): 18 mandates (-10 from previous elections), Labor (Avoda): 22 (+9), Likud 26 (-1), Yisrael Beytenu 18 (+3), Shas (always polls lower than it gets in elections): 9 (-2), Haichud haLeumi + haBayt haYehudi (far-right): 7 (same), Yehadut haTorah (Ashkenazi ultra-orthodox): 6 (+1), Meretz 5 (+2), Raam-Taal: 3 (-1), Hadash (communists): 4 (same), Balad: 2 (same). Barak’s haAtzmaut party doesn’t get any mandates.
Overall, center-left bloc is 54 seats, 9 of which belong to Arab parties that usually don’t participate in coalitions. 66 seats for the right wing-religious bloc. This means, once again, that forming a coalition is practically impossible without the religious parties, unless there’s a national unity government of the secular parties from left and right (unlikely).
Approval rating of Netanyahu: 41% (rise from 32% in previous poll), 45% disaproval rating.40% of Israelis felt proud watching Netanyahu’s militant UN speech, 21% felt hopeful, 13% felt despondent, 12% felt Netanyahu missed an opportunity.
Following the speech, 54% of Israelis believe that the chances for peace will remain the same, 16% thought violence will be more likely and 11% though peace would be more likely.
