ABSTRACT
The article presents discussion regarding the economic and political attitudes behind the results of the January 2013 elections in Israel. The author asserts that the primary issues which influenced the election results were economically based rather than on those of the peace process. The capitalist policies and philosophy of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are particularly highlighted as being resonant for several constituent groups.
