What happens, is that they ask a number of questions regarding your political thoughts and then place you on a grid to give you an idea where you stand. Now, for a couple of years I have always thought of myself as a Left Center type guy with tendencies towards social justice and/liberty. In commentary, I always said that I fit with either Avodah (Labor) and HaTanuah (Tzipi Livni's Party), SO... when my friend mentioned this to me I decided to take the poll and see where I came out.
Surprise of Suprise, there were seven parties in my range. The closest was HaTanuah, and AmShalem (this surprised me at first until I read up on them - but they didn't cross the threshold so...) and then I was right in between Avodah, Yesh Atid, and Kadima. On the outskirts was UTJ and Tal (the Arab Party).
The furthest party from me (and I am proud to say this) was Otzma L'Yisrael, Yisrael Beitanu, HaBayit HaYehudi, and Hadash. And then at about equal distances Meretz, Likud, Shas, Balad,
Needless to say I was pretty proud of this because this is kind of where I thought I would land. I am no radical leftist though I lean left, and I for sure am no Rightist. It was nice to see that confirmed. So pretty much I guess this dispells the nonsense over at Daily Kos about me being a Rightist. Where one Celtic Merlin had this to say:
"Lately - over about the last 12 to 15 months - he has moved more and more in line with Israeli hard-liners"Whoops... Oh well facts are always pesky things.
Anyway, here is the link to the test: 2013 Israeli Election Compass - Where do you fit in... Please let me know.
