Picturing Israeli Elections

About a week before the elections, I followed a young man in Jerusalem giving out Ichud Le'umi election material.




On election day, the voting booth awaited, but...


...the weather was stormy, windy, and the Left hoped we were wimpy and wouldn't show up to vote.



But vote we did!!






And we voted the right way!

Shy, that was Bibi's plan all along.

Precisely.

And voting for Ichud Leumi and chasing votes away from the Likud allows Bibi to do it with no internal opposition and useless external itty bitty parties.....

...... like Ichud Leumi.

When will the penny drop?

How many more centuries will it take for what was once called a "Yiddishe kupp" to catch on that they keep on making the same mistake over and over again?!

And the left is laughing.

The waste was in the Lieberman vote, not the NU vote.

Both, and NU only help the others to run away.

Shalom!
Shy Guy, do you think that Bibi cares one bit about his internal opposition in the Likud? He pushed Feiglin down 16 places and he'll pull more tricks (and that trick was legal) like that if need be. I voted in the primaries, but I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I had voted for Likud. The left is laughing? So what. Voting for a small party that will do only good, however much it can, is better that voting for a large party that will betray its constituency and in fact all of Israel.

Shy, I agree with Hadassa.
