I'm a big picture person. And my ideas are frequently out of the box. That means that you may not read or hear anyone else saying/writing the same as me.
Here in Israel, you'd think there's a chemistry experiment/contest going on with every single possible political alignment being polled and calculated as if they're trying to find a cure for cancer.
In Israel the big picture means that the government should be framed by equally strong opposition factions/parties. This has not been the case for decades, ever since Menachem Begin's Likud got into power in 1977. There was a time in the 1980's when the Techiya Party was in the opposition on the Right and there was also a Left opposition. That was good. But then Techiya joined the government with the Likud when Yitzchak Shamir was Prime Minister. That was the end of Techiya. It didn't get enough votes to make it into the Knesset in the following elections.
Since then, the Likud has been moving Left, since it doesn't fear any party from the Right.
When Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made his coalition, he got Avigdor Lieberman to join it, which has kept Lieberman on a leash which Bibi lengthens whenever he needs something strong said that doesn't suit the image he likes to show. Now, most probably since neither Ehud Barak (formerly Labor) nor Shaul Mofaz (Kadima) don't have much vote-getting power, he has successfully courted Lieberman to run their parties together in the next elections.
Lieberman garnered a lot of votes in the last elections because he campaigned strongly to the Right, but now after being in the government, Right voters won't fall for him again.
NRP is trying to campaign as a Right party, but since it's comfortably in the government and enjoys ministerial perks, Israeli Right wing voters are wasting their vote to vote for them.
There is no longer a National Union Party since Ketzele ran back home to the NRP. MK's Drs. Arye Eldad and Michael Ben-Ari must run a strong campaign to show that they are the only party that will not compromise principles for "Volvos," aka being a government minister.
Even extreme Left anti-religious Tommy Lapid's son Yair is trying to show that he's isn't anti-religious nor anti-Jews in the Land of Israel by campaigning in Ariel and having Rabbi Shai Piron of Tzohar as his number 2.
