The recent Israeli election could well go down as a milestone in the nation’s modern history, given its encouraging signs of a maturing body politic. In particular, an unprecedented number of voters looked past tribal loyalties and the traditional hawks-and-doves divide in favor of calls by a new generation of leaders for uniting as one people to solve some of the country’s longstanding domestic problems.

Normally, Israelis vote with the nation’s pressing peace and security issues foremost on their minds, or they simply vote for their own “tribe.” That changed this time.
