Israelis go to the polls to decide their new government next Tuesday. There’s a lot at stake, not only for Israelis and for Palestinians, but for the entire Middle East and wider world. WHYS will be live from Tel Aviv on Monday, and from Jerusalem on election day, putting you in touch with Israelis and hearing from them at this pivotal time.
We’ll be trying to find out what will be top of Israeli minds as they step into their voting booths. The security situation is obviously a major concern, but people we’ve been speaking to have also told us that issues like education, water and energy are big issues too. How much will those factor into who becomes the next Prime Minister? At the moment right-wing Likud and centrist Kadima are neck and neck in the polls, but Israeli elections are notoriously hard to predict.
Post your questions and messages for Israelis here, and tune in on Monday.
