|Split from||Hahityashvut party|
Koah HaKesef (Hebrew: כוח הכסף, lit. Power of Money), formerly known as The Party for the War against Banks (Hebrew: המפלגה למלחמה בבנקים, HaMiflaga LeMilhama BeBankim) or HaLev (Hebrew: הלב) was a minor political party in Israel. Its goal was to reduce damages that the banks are causing to the public by legislation.
The party was established as the Settlement Party (Hebrew: מפלגת ההתיישבות, Miflaget HaHityasvut) in 1996 following economic crises in many kibbutzim. However, following a deal signed in the same year between the government, the Kibbutz Movement and the banks, the party's activity ceased.
In 2006 the party was re-established again, and ran in the elections that year, claiming that the banks were causing poverty, and exploiting citizens. However, it won only 2,163 votes (0.07%), well below the electoral threshold of 2%. In the 2009 elections it again failed to pass the threshold.
