Bet Shemesh elections: online debate

5+ years ago, prior to the previous elections, the candidates running for the position of mayor of Bet Shemesh held a debate. An actual debate, American style. It left a lot to be desired in its format and especially in the moderation, but it was definitely something that is rarely seen here in Israel.

There has been no debate this time around, but there is a sort of online debate - both Moshe Abutbol and Eli Cohen have written pieces for the Jerusalem Post... not really a debate. not a debate at all, actually, but as close as we are going to get.

Moshe Abutbol

Eli Cohen

I have not seen an article by the third candidate Meir Balayish.
