'A Vote for 'The Israelis' is a Vote for Livni and Ramon'

Yedioth Ahronoth’s weekend poll was the first and the only survey that gave 'The Israelis' party two seats in the next Knesset. The paper writes 'The Israelis', virtually unheard of in the Hebrew language press, “steals seats from Likud-Beitenu” by presenting an alternative for immigrants from the former Soviet Union, who believe Lieberman sold out to Likud.

What is less known to the Israeli public, is that the Immigrant party is basically a silver party founded by Haim Ramon and Tzipi livni, in an attempt to steal as many votes as they can from Likud Beitenu. 

A poll conducted by Ma'agar Mohot, however, found that the Likud Beitenu party will receive 70 percent of the votes of Israelis who emigrated from the former Soviet Union after 1989, while "The Israelis" led by Channel 9 television host David Kon, received only 4% in the poll.
