Meretz election slogans

Did you hear/read the slogans from Meretz's elections campaign? I thought it was a joke when I saw it for the first time.
So let's not bore you and give some taste:


Call me naive,
but there will be a minimum wages for all the pensioners.


My mother isn't an Arab,
but I'll keep fighting for peace and equality.


I'm not a man,
but it is no reason why I should earn less.

I'm no Meretz fan. There is no fricken way I'm going to vote for these people. I'm not promoting them in any way, just want to show you how desperate they are.
For any of you who don't know who Meretz are, they are political party, very left wing. Their political program for is peace, equality, human rights, freedom of religion and from it, gay and lesbian marriages and so on. It all sounds very beautiful, but from my point of view, like many in Europe, they fail to see the line where their dreams shutter upon reality, to the point where pursuing them endangers the very existence of Israel.

It doesn't look like they are getting too many seats.

At their best they got 12 seats. Now they will have to settle for 7 tops.

LOL how pathetic! Sounds like this party has a severe case of low self-esteem.
