    The Israeli Labor Party or new Yesh Atid party. Meretz (a party I used to support - I know support Labor) is well meaning but is a tiny part of the Israeli - Jewish Political spectrum and in the latest poll of Israeli will either only barely increase it's standing OR will stay the same.

      as it is supporting principles

      •  Well sure... and much of the principles that those (0+ / 0-)

        parties represent. I stopped supporting Meretz because I don't agree with a fair amount of what they say in the context of the conflict at this point. I think they are well meaning and I would never say that they are against the Jewish people (as some of the Lunatic Fringe would), but, I just can't support them.

        When you talk about "progressive" principles it is important to understand that this is a subjective term and what you might think is progressive is NOT what I would say is progressive.
