Hitler is being drafted by Bibi to scare Israeli voters into voting Likud. Last week in Tel Aviv I also saw many posters that try to picture Olmert, Kadimah and Labor as the biggest threat that faces Israel. Unless some well-planned and precisely timed terror attacks help the rightwing campaign, I do not think that Bibi's negative tactics will work. The Israeli public wants to know what it should vote for, not what it should vote against. If Olmert and Kadimah ( and also Labor ) make more or less clear what kind of disengagement they envisage, and how they plan to define the - final, until further notice and possible treaties - borders between Israel and some kind of Palestinian state, I believe that Israel's voters will prefer a Kadimah-Labor coalition over the Bibi bunch.
