Israelis head to the polls next Tuesday to elect the country's next prime minister. In the run-up to the election, we ask a left-wing Tel Aviv resident - our first Observer below -, a former Kibbutz resident and Labour supporter, an Israeli Palestinian who supports the Arab party, a rightwing settler, and a Green party supporter and researcher what's on their minds as they prepare to vote.
Lisa Goldman, a blogger and a journalist, lives in Tel Aviv. She prefers not to reveal who she is voting for.
What is the single most important issue in the election for you personally, and which party will best handle that issue?
Will Israel's economic situation influence your vote?
Do you think the Gaza offensive has improved or worsened the security of Israel? Do you feel physically threatened where you live?
Worldwide coverage focuses on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. What is the one thing you would like outsiders to know about Israel?
