This article informs that politics is a dynamic process constantly changing directions and emphases; adjusting and readjusting to altering circumstances. People directly involved in this process relentlessly engage in a never-ending process of defining and redefining objectives and interests, of justifying and rationalizing changing modes of behavior and decision processes as opportunities arise. Israeli politics notwithstanding: the political blocs consisting of loose groupings of ideologically similar Right-wing or Left-wing parties follow this definitional rule. Subsequently, an attempt to clarify the question of which parties belong to which political bloc often adds analytical confusion regarding actual or perceived ideological differences between the competing political parties.
