Yisrael Beytenu chairman Avigdor Liberman referred to latest polls in Tel Aviv's Habimah Theater, which predict that his party may not pass the electoral threshold in the coming elections. 

"The polls taken over the span of one day, as the one done on Friday after the Attorney-General's announcement - these are not polls, that is psychological warfare" Liberman claimed. "they have nothing to do with reality."
