Congratulations to Shahar Tzubery who just won the first Israeli bronze medal at the Beijing Olympics! The race was fantastic.

As for the race to the mayor’s office at Tel-Aviv, today we saw the entrance of a new player to the game: Lawyer Ron Levintal, formerly from Shinui, formed the “Tel-Avivim” party and he’s set on beating the other Ron – Ron Huldai.

As you may remember, Levintal is the man who caused Shinui to disintegrate after he had won Yosef “Tommy” Lapid and managed to gain the party’s No. 1 position.

How is this going to play out? We shall see more in the coming months.
