Naming convention

It may seem confusing that in the English-speaking media some parties are known by their Hebrew name, whilst others have their names translated into English. However, there is some method behind the inconsistency, and naming conventions can be broken into three groups. The English language is a West Germanic language that originates in England. ... Hebrew redirects here. ...


Parties known by their English name

In general, Israeli political parties are known by their English name when there is a party with an equivalent name in the English-speaking world. This is the case for the Israeli Labour Party, which associates itself with Labour parties abroad, such as the British Labour Party. Other parties known by their English names include the National Union, the Jewish National Front and the The Greens. This explains why One Nation is known by its English name, whilst Atid Ekhad (One Future) is known by its Hebrew name. Labour or Labor, (Hebrew: העבודה, ha-`Avōdāh) is a political party in Israel. ... The Labour Party is a political party in the United Kingdom. ... National Union (Hebrew: Haihud HaLeumi האיחוד הלאומי) is an Israeli right-wing party list (סיעה) formed from the merger of three parties: Moledet (homeland), Tkuma (revival) and Renewed National Religious Zionist party. The three parties still operate somewhat independently, but run as one party list in Israeli elections. ... Party ballot Israel legislative election, 2006 The Jewish National Front (Hebrew: חזית יהודית לאומית, Hazit Yehudit Leumit) is a far right-wing Israeli political party. ... The Greens (Hebrew: הירוקים, HaYerukim) is a political party in Israel. ... Am Ehad (One Nation) is a political party in Israel. ... Atid Ekhad (Hebrew: עתיד אחד, One Future) is a political party in Israel. ...


Names are also generally translated when the party's origin or concept is explained in its name. This includes the United Arab List, the National Religious Party or United Torah Judaism. The latter two are also known by their English initials, NRP and UTJ. United Arab List (RAAM, Hebrew. ... Mafdal party logo The National Religious Party (Hebrew: Mafdal, מפדל) is an Israeli political party representing the religious Zionist movement. ... United Torah Judaism (In Hebrew: יהדות התורה which translates as Judaism [of the] Torah) (UTJ) is a small Haredi political party in the Israeli Knesset. ...


Occasionally names are translated when the Hebrew is too unwieldy for English speakers to manage, such as the Alignment (HaMa'arakh). The Alignment (Hebrew: המערך, HaMaarakh), originally called the Labour Alignment (Hebrew: המערך העבודה, HaMaarakh HaAvoda) was the dominant left-wing political party in Israel from its founding in 1965 until its transformation into the Labour Party in 1992. ...


Parties known by their Hebrew name

Israeli political parties that do not have an equivalent in the English-speaking world are usually known by their Hebrew name. This includes parties such as Kadima (Forward), Likud (Consolidation), Meretz (Energy) and Yisrael Beiteinu (Israel Our Home). Kadima (Hebrew: קדימה, Forward) is a political party in Israel. ... Likud (Hebrew: ליכוד, literally means consolidation) is a centre-right political party in Israel. ... It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with Meretz. ... Yisrael Beytenu ( Hebrew: Israel Our Home) is a right-wing political party in Israel with support from Jewish Russian immigrants to Israel who came from the lands of the former Soviet Union. ...


Parties known by their Hebrew/Arabic acronym

It is very common in Israel for parties to be known by acronyms of their name. This is at least partially caused by Hebrew and Arabic's capacity for acronym forming, due to the fact that vowels are not written in words. For instance, the Hebrew word degel (flag) would be written dgl (Hebrew: דגל) with the gaps filled by unwritten vowels. Thus whilst the Scottish National Party is known as the SNP, in Israel the Democratic Front for Peace (haHazit haDemokratit leSHalom) is known as Hadash. This is also similar to the norm in many Latin American countries; for example, a member of Brazil's Partido dos Trabalhadores (PT, or Worker's Party) can be called a "Petista" or a member of the Partido da Frente Liberal, a "Pefelista." Arabic redirects here. ... The Scottish National Party (SNP) (Scottish Gaelic: is a centre-left political party which campaigns for Scottish independence. ... Hadash (חדש) is a far left wing, largely Arab [1], popular front group in Israel made up of the Communist Party of Israel and other left-leaning political groups. ... Brazilian Workers Party flag. ... ...


When written in English, rather than translating the acronym, the Hebrew is used but with the vowels added. Other contemporary parties known by their acronyms include Balad, Gil, Hetz, Meimad and Shas. Historical parties named in such a way incude Mapai, Mapam, Maki, Gahal, Mizrahi and Rafi. Balad (‎ Brit Leumit Demokratit, meaning National Democratic Assembly (at times misnamed National Democratic Alliance)[1], referred to by the acronym בלד; in Arabic, بلد: home town, التجمع الوطني الديمقرآطي, pronounced al-tajamu al-watani al-dÄ«mÅ«qrati) is a political party in Israel. ... Gil (Hebrew: גיל) is a political party in Israel and part of the governing coalition in the seventeenth Knesset. ... Hetz (Arrow) is an Israeli political party, founded by former Shinui member Avraham Poraz, after he lost the inner Shinui elections to Ron Levintal. ... Meimad is a left-leaning religious political party in Israel, founded in 1988. ... Shas (Hebrew: ) is an political party in Israel, primarily representing Ultra-orthodox Sephardi and Mizrahi Judaism. ... Labour (העבודה HaAvoda) is an Israeli political party. ... Mapam - United Workers Party (in Hebrew: מפם - מפלגת פועלים מאוחדת Mifleget Poalim Meuhedet) was initially a Marxist-Zionist party. ...

Rafi (Hebrew: רפי) was a left-wing political party in Israel, founded by former Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, and is one of the ancestors of the modern-day Labor Party. ...


Exceptions

As with many rules, there are always a few exceptions. Shinui (Reform) is known by its Hebrew name despite Reform Parties being common internationally. Shinui (שינוי) (original full name: Tenua le-Shinui ve Yozma and then to Shinui-Mifleget ha-Merkaz) is a Zionist, secular and anti-clerical, free market liberal party in Israel. ...

Political Parties and Electoral Systems in Lebanon and Israel: Interactive Reinforcement (2084 words)
In Israel, the strong role of political parties was and is being reinforced by an electoral system which is based on proportional representation and one national electoral district, thus allowing for different parties, no matter how small they might be, to get some representation.
After 1982, many political parties, on both sides, were transformed into militias as the militarization of the parties eventually led to the parties being controlled by their military wings.
The relatively weak political role of the political parties in Lebanon is attributed to the structure of these parties, which remained highly confessional and depended heavily on individual traditional communal leaders.
