Most went to their strongholds, rehearsed, again, their mantras of months or years, ‘to appeal’ to those who’d vote for them anyway, preaching to the choir.
Lieberman, the self-proclaimed head of the anti-religious, called on voters to vote for him to park the ultra-Orthodox in the opposition. (Not as Arutz7 writes.)
Sa’ar, who bolted the Netanyahu-led Likud ensures that he won’t sit in a Netanyahu-led government. Who could have predicted that? Everyone.
Shaked again flogged the dead horse that her party will be the largest (in any poll not even close) and, rather than lose, in fact, will lead the next government.
Her co-head of the party played a home game by answering questions via Arutz7. Why not go to Tel Aviv or left-wing media? Fear, sloppiness, stupidity?
Gantz, the co-PM, reassured no one when he (really!) said: “There are no defectors in Blue and White.” We all know that everybody has left already. Then he added this most puzzling comparison: “Just as it is with electronic cigarettes, there is smoke without fire.” Huh? I mean, huh?
Netanyahu, Mr. Capitalism, needlessly ensures the voters that his win will mean a ‘strong economy’ (on the back of anyone who needs assistance, that is).
Haaretz, the news outlet that rather than reports, creates ‘news,’ called upon Jews to vote anti-Zionist. That must have come as a shock to its readers. Not.
Lapid, the clown the PM appointed head of the opposition and his personal boxing ball, the most divisive politician of all, was the only one who understood you need to appeal to those you repel. He declared: ‘We will foster unity.’
Or maybe Meretz, the most activist party, did it best. I saw hundreds of their six-second ads on YouTube. They’re on the brink of not passing the threshold.
One could answer the question of why Israeli buses are one meter long and eight meters broad like this: Everyone wants a front seat, sees themselves fit to lead.
Those who bewail the expenses of the elections, know that they’re all lying. This is not money thrown away but actually spent. The poll workers, the guards, the printers of the paperwork, the ads, all this cash is poured into the economy.
Those who say that this money could have been spent on better causes are mistaken. There is no shortage of money, as we have seen when Netanyahu just gave every Israeli cash at the beginning of the lockdown. The coins spent on the elections wouldn’t have been spent on social causes without the polls.
Happy election day everyone!
