Ahead of the upcoming general elections, Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu has upgraded his website, which now features more news, Likud members' blogs, and videos, among other things.


However, some sharp-eyed bloggers could not help but notice the striking similarity between Bibi's site to that of American President-elect Barack Obama.


Despite the obvious similarities between the sites, Netanyahu's Spokesman Yossi Levi claimed that the design of Bibi's website was not copied from Obama's site.


"We view the comparison as a compliment," Levi said. "The guideline of the Likud's online campaign is openness and maximal transparency to the public, with maximal public participation in the election process."
