Rough translation based on Google:
The Likud government, led by Netanyahu, is a political, security and socio-economic failure.And here is the English language text from their website:
We are not willing to remain indifferent. The Million Hands Campaign sends out an unequivocal call: replace the government!
This campaign, with a million hands, is calling for public influence in two ways:
1) Vote in February
2) Put public pressure on the parties to commit to achieving a political agreement, and lowering the cost of living.
On behalf of myself and future generations I hereby give my hand for a change in leadership! I hereby pledge to support a party or coalition that will undertake to:
-To attain a two states agreement between Israel and the Palestinians to ensure the preservation of a Jewish democracy.
-To bring down the cost of living and reduce social inequity.
