People argue about political directions, which in an extreme case leads to elections every few years. Israel elected a right-wing government about six months ago, which is now pulling the entire nation in a direction that not everyone agrees with. For this reason, part of the people protest against the planned judicial reform at the end of every Shabbat.
Most people have found themselves stuck in a particular position on the political map. They say: “I’m on the right” or: “I’m on the left.” Thinking and acting is determined by the respective political attitude. If someone defines themselves as right-wing, they will only read a right-wing newspaper because it presents their right-wing view with the right facts. Consequently, whenever elections are held, he votes for a right-wing candidate. The same applies to the left. When a right-wing politician is suspected of corruption, the right-wing sees it as a conspiracy, but when a left-wing politician is suspected, he is certainly guilty.
