Frantic Bibi Goes Bonkers, Blames International Leftist Plot For His Sagging Poll Numbers


In the wake of terrible polling news for Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party, Bibi is pulling out all the stops in a last-ditch effort to stave off the possibility of an embarrassing performance at the polls on Tuesday. On Friday, the Israeli Prime Minister posted to Facebook, ”Right-wing rule is in danger. Leftist elements and the media in this country and abroad have joined forces to illegitimately bring Tzipi and Bougie (his opposition) to power”. Netanyahu also made similar claims on broadcast radio, suggesting that a leftist conspiracy, funded by unnamed foreign contributors, is seeking to illegitimately influence the Israeli elections to have him ousted as Prime Minister.

Netanyahu is going on the attack, after a number of polling organizations released polls showing his right-leaning Likud Party, trailing the centrist Zionist Union Party, in the run-up to the March 17 election. Because of Israel’s multiparty system, even if his party fails to win as many seats as the Zionist Union, Netanyahu might still have an opportunity to remain Prime Minister, if he can cobble together a ruling government coalition.

However, the polling evidence points to the likelihood that, at the very least, the Likud Party will not secure more seats than the Zionist Union opposition party. An aggregation of recent polls, project the most likely outcome to be that Herzog’s Zionist Union Party will win 25 seats, to the Likud Party’s 21 seats.

Netanyahu seems to recognize that he is in political jeopardy. His political stunt in the United States, where he addressed members of Congress, has created blowback for him back home. That compounded with other governing failures has Netanyahu growing more desperate.

He is ratcheting up his rhetoric in the hopes of scaring Israel’s voters back into the Likud fold. He insisted in a radio interview that voters must select Likud over other right-wing parties to fight off the leftist conspiracy. On an interview with Voice of the South radio, Netanyahu stated: ”The right-wing is splitting. The right-wing must unite behind me and vote Likud.”

Even members of Bibi’s own party are growing increasingly nervous. Reuters reports that at least one senior Likud delegate was hinting that if the election turns out poorly, Bibi might even be ousted as the party’s leader. The delegate ominously said, “We’re closing ranks now, but if Tuesday turns out badly for us, there will be a reckoning.”

While the outcome of the election remains in doubt, what is clear is that Benjamin Netanyahu has alienated a broad segment of the Israeli public. An election he once thought was a sure thing is now slipping away from him. As the Prime Minister’s party continues to crumble in the polls, he has turned to conspiratorial rhetoric about foreign leftist plots, to try to rally the Israeli electorate to his side. However, the voters have heard this song and dance before. After months and months of hearing Netanyahu “cry wolf”, and pull political stunts like his speech to Congress, Bibi’s desperation rhetoric may have an impact on Tuesday. However, it may not be in the direction he intended.

  1. No surprise. A typical right wger. Never take responsibility for anything, even one’s own words. It is a lack of moral courage. Blame the left, or liberals, the elderly, ungrayeful disabled vets, single moms, the poor — anyone but me or billionaires.

  2. Netanyahu also made similar claims on broadcast radio, suggesting that a leftist conspiracy, funded by unnamed foreign contributors, is seeking to illegitimately influence the Israeli elections to have him ousted as Prime Minister.

    Well Beebs I can name one foreign contributor who has funded your bullshit.

  3. oh yeah… and his follow up is that he’s also Irish…

    slainte St Patrick..

    Erin Go Braugh…

    hosting corned beef and cabbage dinner after the polls close…

    oy vey

  4. Bibi has also ramped up what I find disgusting —

    Israeli soldiers are what NBC has called ‘raiding’ – The soldiers wearing masks, are ‘raiding’ Palestinian Homes during the night, forcing kids to be awakened at all hours and questioned at gunpoint.

    This sounds like actions to play into his ‘fear’ spewing — just like Bush played the 9/11 terrorist fear card during his re-election campaign.

    Birds of a feather…..

  5. Fear!
    It’s all they have, these right-wing creeps.
    They spread it.
    They push it.
    They live by it.
    It’s all they have to offer.


  6. Bibi has taken a lesson from the baggers, do stupid things and blame others for your lack of forethought and intelligence. No ethics at all. Hes a republican war monger like Bush. And he, too, will lose.

  7. I sure hope the polls are right. Netanyahu is not good for Israel. He is like some of our rw Senators: always has to have a war. Israel needs peace.

  8. No surprise here. Geography doesn’t matter, ’cause no matter where you live, Conservatives rarely accept responsibility for their own behavior! That’s why they will never learn from their mistakes, they all arrogantly believe they never make any!!!

  9. I think that without the Bibi types and the Likud Party….we should have a breath of Fresh Air, and a NEW way of looking at the Israel-Palestinian debacle. And without Netanyahu, some other way of dealing with Palestine will emerge. Also, without Bibi, the WAR bells will stop ringing, enough for us to look at our adversaries in a different way and convince THEM too, that War and strife is NOT the answer to a peaceful world. BIBI MUST go! The Republican Party in the UNITED STATES will have wake up call; namely: War is not always the answer, and we DON’T have to toe the line with the Israeli warmongers. Let’s see what happens in the world when Israel is hushed, and see the ligjt, finally that Palestinians should NOT be treated in an Apartheid way. Their treatment of those people are a thorn in the world’s backside….just ask the South African Boers.

  10. Netanyahu has threatened to start a war with Iran if the talks aren’t stopped.

    At one time I had felt that he wouldn’t dare to start a war he couldn’t finish. After reading several articles describing his scare tactics and crying about a “leftist conspiracy to undermine him”, I wouldn’t put it past this RWNJ to go over the edge and do exactly that. His hatred for Iran is totally irrational, to say the least.

    What do WE, the U.S. do in that case?

  11. Well our Politian’s are whores for AIPAC so they would be gung ho for war. Now if the people stand up and have the Presidents back and say NO then we can stopped this insanity

  12. Fox news claims a top source quoted as saying, the senate is looking into claims the Obama administration is meddling in the Isreali elections. The committee will be headed by Rob Portman and Claire McCaskil. Also said they were looking into to the actions of former ambassador Marc Ginsberg as having some connection.

  13. BiBi is upset because he said outsiders have “illegitimately influence”. Oh please… he describing himself?
    The majority of Americans will not back BiBi….donations will dry up….
    We’ll see next week!!!!
    Wonder if the RW cheats over there like they do in the US?

  14. Fox news claims? OMG, do you not realize this is exactly what Netanyahu has done here in the US? What utter BS on their part. He is deflecting, and badly at that.

  15. Since Israel doesn’t have a color-coded terror alert system, where a Tom Ridge-like person could declare RED the day before the election…

    What are the odds that there will be a serious bombing the day before or day of the elections?

    Desperate politicians cannot be trusted.

  16. We all need peace, abroad and here at home. But the war-mongerers amongst us don’t want to lose their profits shares from the military industrial complex. Just ask Cheney.

  17. of course, because any resistance to wanton slaughter and the co opting of the U.S. to do it is clearly a leftist plot, because right wing sonsofbitches stand for death and destruction

  18. Hmmm, let’s see. A warmonger ranting and raving about conspiracies and nuclear annihilation. Could it be Dr. Strangelove? No it’s just Bibi trying to get elected. We’ve had enough of his B.S. let’s hope the Israeli voters have had enough also.

  19. Nothing. The American people will not tolerate another war in the Middle East. We don’t want to fund it without hard earned tax dollars when we have so many needs at home. Besides, we haven’t paid for the trillions in debt we owe for the first two Bush Cheney lunatic wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. And we are not willing to see our military men and women die and be maimed for Israel. We can’t take care appropriately of the ones we have already offered up as cannon fodder to the Middle East on behalf of Israel. No more. No more. I don’t give a hoot about Israel. I’m an American. I care about my own country, not some little foreign speck of a war criminal nation.

  20. I don’t give a hoot about Israel. It’s a foreign country. I don’t give a hoot about Netanyahu. He’s a foreigner. This is America. We’re Americans. Why do I have to pay taxes to support welfare recipients in Israel? Why do I have to be made complicit in Israel’s war crimes when I don’t support the settlements and the routine bombardment of Gaza? Why are Americans who do not believe in abortion and do not want to fund abortions with their tax dollars funding free on demand abortions in Israel? Why are our politicians attacking our Social Security and Medicare systems while giving our tax dollars to the socialist country of Israel so they can have a universal health care program? Israel allows men who prefer to study the Torah instead of getting a job to live permanently on welfare with their families of 12-14 children in free housing in illegal settlements that we American tax payers paid for. Why do we allow this?

  21. Looks like in a sign of desperation Bibi is offering one of his rivals the position of finance minister.
    By the way, we have another traitor, apparently John Voight is going on about Obama not loving Israel and Bibi’s troubles are because of Obama – who let him loose?


    GOP senators blocking the hall,
    47 in all,
    If one of those stooges should happen to fall,
    46 senators blocking the hall.

    46 senator blocking the hall,
    46 senators all,
    If one of those stooges should happen to fall,
    45 senators blocking the hall.

    45 senators……. etc, etc, etc ;-)

  23. we’re having so much fun watching this V15 video from March 2 in which PM Benjamin Netanyahu has to pack up his bomb cartoon and leave the official residence with his wife Sara we decided to feature it twice today. A friend thinks the screenshot below (from 0:45 in the video as the actors are on the precipice of taking one step out the door) is an impersonator but I think it’s some fancy photoshopping. – See more at:

  24. Dangerous man ; this guy will get us into another war then want us to send him billions more than the billions we already send him. The Israeli people must get rid of him.

  25. Patricia, there is a clause inserted deeply into the Kirk-Menendez bill Section 2(b)(5) that stipulating that whenever Bibi feels the need to attack Iran (or any country, for that matter,) the United States will be “compelled to provide military assistance.”

    This means that Netanyahu is actually authorized to be the Commander-in-Chief of OUR military! Menendez is a Democrat who ought to be horsewhipped. Republicans like Kirk are what they are — warmongering addicts.

  26. That’s why that bill should never become law. AIPAC wrote that POS and I haven’t heard one peep from these so called patriots on ceding our national security to a foreign government
