I think that's a silly analysis
The fact that it's not similar to the American one, or that it's quite sub-optimal, doesn't mean no political culture exists.
I might say it owes it's connected to very different roots - for example the Jewish parties in Poland, the pre-state struggle between labour and "revisionists", and more.

I would take the Israeli political culture over the American one any day – Having just two parties, both saying pretty much the same thing, with rock bottom voter turnout time and again. Great democracy.

can you direct me to an article about Ehud Barak, about his failures and so on? I hear many comments about it, but I don't really know what happened in Taba on Camp David.
