I spoke to several Israelis today and they were ALL disgusted at the attacks on Bibi and Lieberman so close to the elections.
Israelis are well informed and ALL of the ones that I spoke to are now more likely to vote Likud!

3. Blatant lies!!!
Did he really say "payments to activists are completely unrelated?" I though American politics were bad but man.. This party is just brazenly lieing. They think we're just morons.
4. Weinstein? How Much is he getting Paid?
I wonder how much Weinstein is getting Paid from outside forces and governments for all these sudden indictments and investigations before the election?

5. Am sure they are investigating Shas right now
6. # 1
Likud is in power at the moment, are you suggesting that they are the "left" ?
7. #2 you and your friends are suckers then
Activists are salesman people who get a salary to promote a political party.
As for the articles, all political parties use various methods to identify potential voters and actively call them on election day, even offering free rides to voting booths. Obama did the same, and there is nothing wrong with it.
Yisrael Beitenu does not need to buy votes: all they need to do is show pictures of the Grad rocket on Rishon and tell people "You vote Left, there will be nowhere to hide"

9. #6 Left and Right
Netanyahu appointed Weinstein as AG and Barak as DM. At Bar Ilan he called for a new Arab state in Israel, respected the corrupt Abbas, encouraged Arab takeover of land while illegally freezing Jewish building.
Although not Meretz, Netanyahu's government has been Left of center, certainly much more Left than Likud.
And that is what Likud voters think, look at the polls of the last three weeks: every time Netanyahu attacks Bennet as being too Zionist, Likud drops and Bennet goes up.
