  1. Good luck to Tamar Zandberg on trying to get the petition to go through. Meretz political party is not seen very favorably in Israeli life, society and culture due to ‘certain views’. The Likud Party dominates most of the Knesset (Parliament) as well as other parts of Israeli government.

    Don’t get me wrong; I hope she succeeds. However, this will not be an easy battle at all.
