Why are you focusing on an election that the Israeli Knesset declared was actually unworkable after the second such election in 2001 - and almost certainly would have declared such in 1996 had the results been opposite of the historical ones? I think actual Knesset would be far more worth the effort to find a way to make work.

Simple, I already did this one and am making some slight changes for historical accuracy

But don't you my point on the whole failed electoral experiment itself?

Yes. If I make a Knesset election I'd probably code a seperate calculation app and convince @admin_270 to add it in as an optional feature until he gets it running natively.

Yes, and be unable to get a working majority in the Knesset, which would have killed this bad electoral experiment in 1996, instead of waiting until 2001 to realize how unworkable the idea actually was and abolishing it...

yeah he was, but the problem is that he wasn't able to win the position of PM despite many attempts, for example he lost to Begin in the "Begin revolution" but he wasn't a bad politician, he is like *insert dream candidate from the US who didn't win*

As you mentioned Begin Shir Hapalmach began playing in my head.(Which he was part of for a time.)

in the 50's Begin was pretty radical, iirc he led a mega protest against Ben Gurion over Israel forgiving to West Germany, which also could be an issue with alot of profile and momentum in a potential scenario

Judaism doesn't exactly require you to forgive people who tried to kill you or forgive people no matter what. That's a distinctly Christian idea.

And for goodness sake half the country lost all or most of their family and went through tremendous suffering due to the Germans OK?

You do, of course, realize, the West German government of Konrad Adenauer can't honestly be called "the government that tried to kill the Jews." Adenauer screened his cabinet members carefully to avoid Nazis, SS members, Gestapo members, high-ranking Wehrmacht officers, etc. from having representation in it at all (although a couple did get in, it was moreso because they were very good at hiding it and very quiet about, not because Adenauer tolerated them knowingly), and a few noteworthy members of Adenauer's government (like Finance Minister, and future Chancellor, Ludwig Erhard) were active members of the secret underground of GERMANS against the Nazis and the Holocaust during the war. To say that Adenauer's government could be conflated with Hitler's and viewed and treated the same, and expected the same of, would be like saying the same of Obama's and Trump's administrations, but to a significantly greater extreme.

True but you do need to realize this was not long after the Holocaust emotions got involved.

Judaism has traditionally been a religion that promotes and emphasizes discipline, self-control, and clear-headed thinking, to a degree, in fact, among the world's biggest religions only matched by Taoism.

Judaism generally encourages it but it's up to the victim and the fact is that as much as some want to most are unable to.

but the sheer scale and trauma of the Holocaust destroyed any semblance of discipline, emotions were high

Yes, emotions were high, fear and anger were at their height, a sense of betrayal and humiliation as a people ran high. The exact same situation that Hitler played upon among the German people to come to power in the first place. Do you see my point here, at all?

well, the situations were very similiar in importance, but Begin certainly isn't an ultra-nationalist, at least not in 1977 when he got elected, i just said that in the 50's he wasn''t a nice guy politician
