There are many ways to look at the rubber floor mats and rubber sandal that are being worn by some Israelis in their homes and offices.
For many, the mats are a sign of dignity.
For others, they are a symbol of privilege.
But for many Israelis, they also reflect a more general feeling that their country is not good enough.
“There is a kind of sense of superiority and entitlement in a way, but also insecurity,” said Rania Shtayyeh, a professor of sociology at Bar Ilan University.
“People feel that they are above everyone else, and they are not good, they should be doing better, they can do better.”
Shtaiyeh’s research into Israeli society has found that the country’s political elite is deeply divided.
The political elite are divided into a group of three: the Likud (Conservative); the Zionist Union (Likud-Beiteinu) and the Joint List (Yisrael Beiteinui).
Both of these parties have a history of corruption scandals, including bribery and kickbacks, but they are far less influential than the Zionist parties.
The Joint List is seen as more centrist and centrist is seen more as right-wing.
The Likuds are seen as centrist, but are considered to be far more conservative.
According to Shtaeyeh and her co-authors, a major problem is the perceived lack of political diversity within the governing coalition.
The Knesset has a total of 60 seats, which is less than a quarter of the national total.
Most of the seats are held by Likuda-dominated parties, but the Joint and Joint List parties are also in charge of governing in the Knessets.
The number of Likudi seats in the national legislature has been steadily decreasing since the Kitzur War of 1967, when the ruling coalition formed and the Kabbalistic establishment was largely defeated.
In the last election, the Joint Likadhi Party (JLP) took 61 seats, compared to 37 for the Joint Zionist Union and 15 for the Zionist United Torah Judaism.
This year, however, the JLP is expected to come close to the number of seats that were claimed in the election.
The parties that won seats are Likdia (Lackadais), the Labor Party (Litvak) and Kadima (Lifu).
The party that won most seats is Kadima, with more than a third of the votes, and the two parties have been vying for the lead since the last elections.
Kadima was also the main beneficiary of the Israeli economic crisis, which saw many Israeli businesses shutter.
In fact, according to Shteyeh her study, it is Kadimas economic policies that are driving the recent political divide.
Kadim’s policies include a reduction of taxes on business and the lowering of foreign exchange regulations.
Kadis policies have also encouraged the construction of new settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
While the Laksi-led government has been the dominant political force, Shteieh said that she believes there are other parties that are equally capable of taking power in the coming elections.
“It is important to note that while the Lakshas coalition is dominant in Knessett, there are many other parties, including the Jewish Home, who are competing for power.
There is also a growing interest among young Israelis in parties that represent a more radical view,” she said.
Shtayayeh said she has been watching the election closely.
“I do not believe the elections are representative of the public opinion of the country, but there is also an element of that that is evident in the elections.
And there is a growing desire among the public for change in the system,” she explained.
“The Laksas coalition does not represent a majority in the parliament, but I think it is a minority.
“So yes, it’s true that a large part of the population feels that they don’t belong here and the country is no longer good enough, but it’s also true that this kind of political polarization and inequality is something that has been occurring for decades. “
If you look at a different scenario, we might see a different result, but in that scenario, the coalition would still have a very strong mandate,” she concluded.
“So yes, it’s true that a large part of the population feels that they don’t belong here and the country is no longer good enough, but it’s also true that this kind of political polarization and inequality is something that has been occurring for decades.
I think the public is looking for a more inclusive politics and a more just politics.”
The research has also shown that the Likhud-led coalition’s policies on taxes, on foreign exchange regulation and on the construction sector are popular with the Israeli public.
In addition, the government has also made changes to the public sector, such as the privatization of public lands.
In an interview with the Israel Democracy Institute, Shtayeh said the LIKud-dominated
