"Netanyahu. In a whole different league."

Monday, February 04, 2019 |  Israel Today Staff

That's the message scrawled on a series of new billboards popping up in Israeli urban centers ahead of the next national election.

With the vote just eight weeks away, these billboards featuring Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump are just part of the massive campaigning now underway. It's impossible to visit a Hebrew-language website without some politician's face flashing about on your screen.

Most of the polls show a small decline for the Likud, the senior partner in the government coalition lead by "Bibi" Netanyahu. There is also a rise in the number of center, center-right and right-wing parties getting into the election flurry.

The fact that Netanyahu is pushing his close friendship with Trump is seen by some as as sign that he's worried that Likud might not get the votes needed to keep him in the Prime Minister's Office.
