The Labor Party, in cooperation with leftist elements calling themselves “The New Majority, ” on Friday distributed a satirical newspaper called “Israel Machar” (Israel Tomorrow, a play on the name of Sheldon Adelson’s pro-Netanyahu daily Israel Today).
The 8-page fake newspaper is a farewell to Benjamin Netanyahu. Sponsors say they’ve printed half a million copies, delivered to mailboxes and distribution points in Israeli cities.

The newspaper summarizes Netanyahu’s tenure as prime minister through a photo album, satirical news and ads that show different facets of Netanyahu’s conduct, acts and mistakes. The opening portrays a scenario in which Netanyahu hears of his electoral defeat.
Page 6 has a quiz with questions checking how the reader’s finances are doing today, compared with six years ago.
Page 7 has three obituary ads, which are a common site in Israeli papers, mourning the loss of Netanyahu’s government and sponsored by Sheldon Adelson, the tycoons and an anonymous take-away joint.
