Exciting Israeli Election – January 8, 2012

We are just two weeks away from national elections in Israel and it is, indeed, a unique election campaign.  Not so much because the parties have changed their strategies or because the campaign slogans are surprising, but because, for the first time in decades, the outcome of the elections is a foregone conclusion.  Everyone, even […]
