Most people who are unfamiliar with Israeli politics completely underestimate Avigdor Lieberman and his Yisrael Beiteinu party. Beiteinu is expected to win as many as 20 seats in the Knesset, and most polls show that it will clearly be the third largest party, putting Labor in 4th.
Though Bibi will probably win by a small hair, Lieberman will be the true victor.
