In this Monday, Dec. 31, 2012, a pirate hat is seen on a table during a meeting of the Israel Pirate Party in Jerusalem. The Israel Pirate Party is one of 34 lists competing in the country’s Jan. 22 national election. While only a dozen or so have a realistic chance of getting elected, many Israelis fed up with existential issues like the conflict with the Palestinians and possible war with Iran are seeking sanctuary in some of the quirkier parties running.
