    I dont get why people try the combover. Its so hideous and obvious.

    Spot on. This guy nailed it. I couldn’t have said it better myself. Every Likudnik needs to watch this before they vote for the likes of Moshe Feiglin or Danny Danon. You need real leaders like Netanyahu or Meridor, not these bomb throwers. But it’s probably too late.

      I told you so.

        But 1 out of 10 Israelis say they are less likely to vote Likud with this more conservative slate of candidates. I don’t think this means that Likud and the Russians (Beteynu) won’t form the core of the new government, but I do think it means a lot of Israelis are uncomfortable with a far-right governing coalition.

          “I told you so” that Bibi was not a far-right-wing zealot. Unfortunately.

          9% of Likud voters, not Israelis. But that still isn’t too bad, and doesn’t allow for the reverse effect.

          But we still don’t know what parties are running, let alone their makeup. Bibi seems to be trying his hardest to lose the election. At this point I think he still could.

          By the way, I don’t really see much difference between Likud and Kadima, except in Kadima’s demagoguery. But Kadima is dead, killed (in my opinion) by the rise of the Left occasioned by the Tent Protests ironically designed (with some foreign money) to unseat Bibi.

            I somewhat agree. Likud has moved quite to the left unfortunately, but there is a new right party now.

          We shall see, comparing the final result to the current number and the polls before the merger. It may prove to be a wash.

      How are they bomb throwers? You know people said the same of Begin and Netanyahu and Begin brought peace with Egypt, while Netanyahu may have brought peace with Gaza. The left parties on the other hand have many wars and blood on their hands (Excluding Golda Meir and prior one-party rule)

        “Bomb throwers” is a nice way to put it, juvanya. Do you not know who Moshe Feiglin is and how he wants to remake his country? He’d be much more comfortable in the Kach Party than the traditional Likud Party, but the Israeli government outlawed it some years ago. Not only does he want to forcibly remove the Arab population from what he sees as “greater Israel” (even inside the green line), but he doesn’t have much use for secular Israeli Jews, either. He’s got a website. Read up.

    He is excellent. Are we paying him? We should

      That corrupts it and reduces his credibility. I would never accept a check from anyone for my Hasbarah WOrk.
