by Nadine Carlson (geb. Mensel)

Seminar with the Manof Forum
Observations of the political landscape of Israel indicate that in the long run the Israeli public opinion and the political decision-making process will be significantly influenced by political powers of the center and right of the center. However, this camp does not form a closed unit. It consists of political parties such as Kadima, Israel Beiteinu, Yesh Atid, HaTnua and HaBayit Yehudit. However, the Likud, the oldest and biggest party of the conservative spectrum, takes the center stage.
