There’s two things that are clear. The Israeli public does not want a leftwing government, and the Israeli public does not like how Israel’s leftwing media tried to manipulate the elections.

The suspiciously timed “investigations” against Netanyahu fueled by the constantly repeated reports of those investigations only helped Netanyahu in the polls, until the media finally realized they needed to back off the reporting because it was backfiring.

And then there was V15’s campaign. The Israeli people aren’t stupid. They saw the media manipulation. They understood about the foreign funding, and they hit back.

The news media’s outright lying about the number of people at the rightwing rally on Sunday didn’t help their credibility, but worse was the panic the media inadvertently sowed when, in their excitement, they kept hinting that Herzog/Livni would win – that was enough to get the people out.

If the media hadn’t invested itself in trying to oust Netanyahu, general voter apathy might have actually done the job for them. But when the Israeli people saw that the Left might actually come back to power, because of the media, that was enough to wake the sleeping giant.

  1. Good observation and i was thinking exactly the same thing….Ynet is the biggest media outlet, and its verbal assault on BIbi with constant bombardments of petty articles bashing him, was obviously biased and disgusting! Overkill

  2. The left in Israel created a monster, in the form of the media. They then believed all the lies of the monster that they, themselves created!
    Since it is now more than clear that the media has its own agenda, and censors what it wants to appear, and who it wants to destroy -it is time for a PUBLIC INQUIRY, in order to protect the public in the future.

  3. As in the Purim story, I see the hidden Hand of Hashem in this election. And like the Pesach story, once the left started gaining momentum, it was like the hardening of Pharoah's heart, as G-d kept letting out more rope for them to hang themselves on. The more Pharoah pressured us, the stronger we became. Likewise, the rightwing brought out the last minute surge of strength. To everyone who prayed, thank you!!
