A day before Israelis go to the polls, and the picture is murky. The latest statistics show that 28 seats are still up for grabs because of the large number of undecided voters, a number unprecedented in Israel.
Two articles in Ynetnews.com explain the apathy on the part of the average Israeli voter. Meir Sheetrit makes the statement that his new party Kadima "has no ideology"., which those of us on the right have been saying for months. Comprised of a group of politicians who did not succeed in their original parties, they started claiming that they are centrists, but quickly turned to the left, and now claim that they have no agenda - except for forcing settlers out of their homes. Inexplicably, they are leading in the polls. It seems that most people don't really care about them having no ideology - they want to "try a cenral party this time".
Naomi Ragen, also in Ynetnews.com, explains why this situation is so dangerous.
"The merchandise manufactured by Yossi Beilin - that is, reducing Israel to the '67 borders as a solution to all her problems - and which is currently the only thing being sold by Kadima, and Meretz, and Labor, will finally succeed in finishing off any chance we have to live in peace. And the day after the last settler is kicked out of his home and our enemies come to us with a long list of new territorial demands, the people will look up from their lattes in surprise and say: Really! We didn't expect this."
A lot depends on who makes the effort to vote tomorrow - the ostriches who don't see the dangers on the horizon and have their heads in the sand, or the guards - those who can see the dangers and are warning us about them.
