The American voter elects individual representatives of district constituencies, while the Israeli voter selects from amongst lists of candidates for the Knesset (Parliament) throughout the country.
In 1988 this threshold for representation was raised to 1.5 percent in an attempt to prevent extremist minority views—in this case a political party that was later disqualified from candidacy because it was deemed racist—from gaining representation in the Knesset.
After elections for the Knesset have been conducted, the president of the State of Israel will approach the leader of one of the parties--generally the party that has received the greatest number of votes--and entrust him or her the task of forming a government.

But Israel is reluctant to carry out the prolonged ground offensive that would likely be needed to drive them out, and its long history of ill-fated occupations of Arab lands makes a lengthy military campaign in either Gaza or Lebanon less likely.
Israel appears to be using the current crisis to strike a decisive blow against what Haaretz military correspondent Zeev Schiff called an “extreme foursome” — Hamas, Hezbollah, Syria and Iran.
