Popping Up Like Mushrooms Along the Roadside: A New Israeli Billboard


Were you disturbed by the level of the US elections?

The advertisement above, which now appears on billboards across Israel, is encaptioned:

Bibi Will Entangle Us.


Kadima

According to a recent poll conducted by Dialog for Haaretz, Kadima, which currently has 28 members of parliament, the highest number of any Israeli political party, is  expected to receive only seven seats in the January elections, whereas a Netanyahu-led right wing-religious bloc will garner a significant majority (see: http://www.timesofisrael.com/polls-show-netanyahu-far-ahead-with-livni-edging-olmert-in-the-trailing-field/).

Surprisingly, Israelis, who have gotten used to living under a cloud, nuclear or otherwise, do not seem terribly perturbed by this campaign slogan and the accompanying picture.
