What is the etymology of these words? I don't think they are related to the words for right and left.

They are: שמאל smol left. ימין yamin right.

I rather enjoy that the name Benjamin literally means "the son of my right hand." And I enjoy even more that notable members of the tribe of Benjamin were left-handed (אהוד and the 700 left-handed slingers come to mind).

According to statistics, we tend to choose left-handed people as well as people with light-colored eyes. BTW I assume you know that, considering what you wrote, but BB himself is left-handed

I'm not sure where to report this... I got this sentence as multiple-choice and the word order was mixed up, with the last word (the one to be chosen) to the right of the rest of the sentence, rather than the left.

Is it the same for Israeli right wing and left wing parties?

No, left wing is שמאלני.
