An informative and entertaining programme of serious policies, personal attacks and light-hearted banter.

And: A report from the situation in the holy city of Chevron, where Jews are still prohibited to move into their legally purchased buildings, because it would upset the Arabs.
 On Tuesday 22. February Israel goes to the polls to elect a new Parliament.    The President will then invite the leader of the  largest Party to form a government.    (Note that at the 2009 election it was the leader of the party heading the largest political block, favouring  Netanyahu of Likud with 27 seats, not Livni of Kadima with 28)

Learn what the Israeli voter has to endure when representatives from eight major parties sit on the same platform.  Hear the far left Meretz Party strongly arguing for an accommodation with the “moderate” Mahmoud Abbas to agree a two State Solution. And  consider the arguments from the far right Otzma Le Israel Party insisting that Jordan is Palestine and all of Israel belongs to the Jews.   Assess all the views and policies of the parties in between and then decide.

Also: A revealing  interview with the representative of the far left Meretz Party.
