When the early election was announced in December, it reflexively triggered talk about how fateful it would be – how it would be nothing less than a battle for Israel’s soul.
With less than a month before the polls, a look at the issues that have dominated the campaign renders those early predictions vacuous. What are we discussing? Bottle deposits, hidden kitchens, US House Speaker John Boehner, Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer, garden furniture.
To paraphrase Winston Churchill: Some fateful election. Some soul.
