Adding non-represented parties?[edit]

I was wondering on consensus whether we should open up this template to include parties that have not reached the threshold but have become notable on their own. Most of these non-viable parties have their own articles that can be found on List of political parties in Israel. My ideas are: leave it as is, add the rest of the parties interspersed, or create two sections based on whether or not they are currently in the knesset. Or perhaps we should change the template's name to "Current Israeli political parties" or "Israeli political parties currently represented in Knesset". I would rather get a sense of consensus here rather than radically changing the template. Valley2city 17:50, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

I think it is fine as it is. There are far too many small parties, and for us to decide which ones are notable would not really be in line with NPOV. There are too many questions - are Tzomet still noteworthy for instance? Number 57 18:38, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
