The Israeli elections look confusing to most Americans, but conservatives should learn important lessons from their results.

One of the big questions involves the real chance that the Left-Center coalition challenging Prime Minister Netanyahu could come out a winner, even though all polls show the electorate leaning to the right and a clear plurality favoring Bibi’s continuance as prime minister. How could this be? Very simply, the Left-Center did a much better job of unifying its interests and subordinating ego and ambitions to the good of a movement. Netanyahu’s problem is important leaders who served in his cabinet and mostly share his ideology, but sought votes on their own, badly dividing Israel’s Right-Center majority.

In 2016 and beyond, conservatives in the US must remember that what we hold in common is far more important than any issues that divide us.
