Two points: 1. Bibi Netenyahu repeatedly requested, even begged Tzipi Livni to join him in a broad coalition last elections. It was Livni who rejected this. Only as a reaction to this did the Likud join up with the next largest elected faction - Yisrael Beiteinu. If anything, Netenyahu was allowing the democratic process to correctly take place in Israel, and if it did not take place as ideally as it could have, Kadima was at fault. 2. There is no way that the Likud would be so stupid as to predetermine an outcome of an election before it has taken place and join an alliance with Yisrael Beiteinu before elections take place. Likud is not so stupid. Netenyahu is not so stupid. If anything, Netenyahu is feeling out options for a future government, and I assume he will have similar back-room discussions with Barak as well as Mofaz without predefining a governmental coalition with them before elections take place.
