As one Israeli quipped,
"Well, it's time for another election, seeing as we have not held one for a few weeks."

"Hey Rocky! Watch me pull a government out of my hat!"

"Again? This never works."

Again, a more than 2 party system favors repubs, or Likuds. They're the same thing.

Dont need a government when you have a religious military industrial complex.

That's a small yarmulke, does size make a difference or is that a 'summer' jewish hat?

Well a 2 party system favors repubs, so I'd imagine a 1 party system favors repubs as well.

If you're asking seriously: yes, there is a difference. Not a practical one (other than coverage), but a socio-political one.

You generally see crocheted kippot on more left-leaning Jews (Modern Orthodox, Conservative, even Reform and leftward, if they wear a kippah). Moving rightward, standard-issue Orthodoxy generally goes with crocheted or suede, sometimes the big black velvet one more common among Chassidim and other black-and-white Jews on the more conservative side of the spectrum.

If you're not asking seriously, it's to keep our brains in - the smaller ones go on dumber people.

Systems of power attract the kind kof people who should never be put in charge of a lemonade stand, let alone society.

No, I was serious, different sizes must have meant something but less seriously this guy must be a dummy.

And yet no one in the Knesset has been removing Israeli women's reproductive rights.

In fact, Israel just expanded abortion access (pills are easier to get, and pregnant people no longer have  to appear in person before a medical board to ask their permission to abort their pregnancy).

// I should point out that Judaism doesn't just "permit" abortion - it's REQUIRED when the gestating parent's health is threatened

I thought the appearance before the medical board was to have the state pay for the abortion. Not permission for the abortion itself.

If Hebrew is read backwards, then why is the period at the end?

Well, I admit to writing that from memory, and the only link I could find was from some Christian "news" agency (a link which I didn't include for obvious reasons). This link (from January this year) suggests that the meeting was to get permission to abort at all, not to have the state pay for it.

Seems like the state's already been paying for abortions for people aged 20-33 for 9+ years.

I'd say a 1 party system favors them about as equally as anything over a 2 party system.

I know... yet.  I don't trust them to stay away from it though.  Good on their repubs for not being as stupid as ours, for now.

From Wikipedia, for your dreams that turn to dust in your hand.

"At the federal level, Canada has been dominated by two relatively centrist parties practising brokerage politics",[a][34][35][36] the centre-left leaning Liberal Party of Canada and the centre-right leaning Conservative Party of Canada (or its predecessors).[37] "The traditional brokerage model of Canadian politics leaves little room for ideology"[38] as the Canadian catch-all party system requires support from a broad spectrum of voters.[32][35][36][34] The historically predominant Liberals position themselves at the centre of the political scale,[39] with the Conservatives sitting on the right and the New Democratic Party occupying the left.[40][41][42]Five parties had representatives elected to the federal parliament in the 2021 election: the Liberal Party who currently form the government, the Conservative Party who are the Official Opposition, the New Democratic Party, the Bloc Québécois, and the Green Party of Canada.[43]"

It's mostly a 2 party system.  Technically America has a more than 2 parties as well, and they're not important either. Though they have helped repubs win.

Until they can start acting like humans, they can simply keep dissolving.
