The Israeli press is full of speculation about a conflict between the political and military wings of Hamas and between the local leadership and the leaders living in exile in Syria.
Israeli forces arrested a number of Hamas officials in the PA government and pulled the identity cards of others that allowed them to reside in East Jerusalem.
In the midst of this unbridled retaliation, Israeli planes were sent to buzz the palace of the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, threatening a new regional armed conflict.

 Middle East Report Online: The Israeli Election Campaign Avoids the Issues, by Joel Beinin
In the early stages of the campaign for the Israeli Knesset elections due to be held on January 28, there were no armed attacks by Palestinians on Israelis.
However, any Israeli illusions that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's policies had succeeded in bringing about an end to armed Palestinian resistance to occupation were shattered on December 28 when gunmen belonging to Islamic Jihad killed four people at the yeshiva (religious seminary) of Otniel as they awaited a Sabbath dinner.
The local factors causing the collapse of the Israeli economy are the sharply increased cost of defending the settlements in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip and the withdrawal of foreign investment following the breakdown of the Oslo process at the end of 2000.

 Why Israeli Politicians Lie - Reader comments at DanielPipes.org
Thank you for having the courage to expose the way Israeli Politicians intentionally lie to the Jewish Majority in order to win their votes.
This is the reason many people have such a low opinion of politicians, and often do not even bother to vote, knowing in advance that the politicians will betray them with impunity once they get elected.
The politician will then be committed to vote according to his election promises, for the term of his elected office.

But to the surprise of many Israelis, these passions have also spread to Israeli Arab towns in a manner that was not witnessed even during the years of the intifada beginning in the late 1980s.
But there is more to the mobilization of Israeli Arabs than affinity with other Palestinians: the pain of coming of age as Israeli citizens.
But the issues politicians exploit obviously resonate with the Arab public in Israel, even as most are not militant.

 Blackmail, Bribes, a Pardon & -- Indictment?
When I saw the list of Israeli politicians who personally intervened with Clinton to pardon him, and when I noted another man whose case they had ignored, it was clear that the Rich matter was a cross section of leftwing corruption, there and here.
It is quite possible that these and other Israeli ultra leftists received money from Rich not only through his donations to various "One Israel" (the new, disguised name of the Labor Party) fictional campaign and charitable organizations.
Aside from money, these Laborites are linked by the Israeli they ignored, Jonathan Pollard, now serving the 16th year of a life sentence for a crime, treason, he did not commit and with which he was not even charged.

 EJP | News | Eastern Europe | Israeli politicians woo crucial Russian vote
Some 750,000 voters from among the 1.1 million Jewish immigrants who arrived from former Soviet states over the past 15 years hold the key to one fifth of the seats in the Israeli 120-member parliament, or Knesset.
As a result, politicians have been relentlessly wooing the "Russian vote" in recent months, promising to tackle social inequalities and placing Russian candidates high on their party slates.
Zeev Elkin, a former Russian immigrant who today numbered 17 on the Kadima candidate list, admits his party, which is poised to emerge as the big winner in the elections with nearly 40 seats, is having trouble in attracting Russian voters.

 Israeli politicians are no different - Reader comments at DanielPipes.org
As is well known, usually this is confined to spending and taxation promises, that is they all promise lower taxes and spending and then go on to raise taxes and increase spending.
These reversals of campaign promises are usually excused by the politicians as being what they think is good or necessary for the majority of the public, although generally, whatever a politician does is usually in his own perceived self interest.
In Israel campaign promises are made to be broken, which is of course perfectly consistent with Middle Eastern ethics wherein treachery is also considered to be the greatest wisdom.
