    Considering how close the election is, that’s a really unfortunate stance in my view.

      oh yeah, it's going to be a pretty close call for whoever ends up winning. but given the fact that the anti-zionists parties, the arab parties, and especially the jewish left/center-left have collapsed, and the fact that the two biggest parties don't seem to differ especially heavily in their policy toward palestinians, it's understandable that some palestinians have just resigned to this election fucking them, no matter who they vote for. the former joint list parties and labor are getting creamed, and they were the only real factions supporting a two-state/multiethnic state solution in the knesset.

        I guess I’m just a firm believer in the reality of choosing the lesser of two evils. To me, it’s a major part of the adult human condition. I don’t know Likud’s opponent very well at all, but I assume that they didn’t welcome the previously banned far-right party, as Likud did.

        It is understandable to be resigned, and I feel that daily. But in elections decided within the margin of error, we all must vote.
