Less than 48 hours before the Knesset polls open, Israeli politicians are using every studio and microphone to sneak in a little illicit campaigning. However, a few slips of the tongue are bound to emerge out of the sloganeering.

MK Ayelet Shaked, the number two on the far-right Habayit Hayehudi slate, was giving an interview to ultra-Orthodox radio station Hakol Berama, when she called on "all who are right wing, all who believe in the Land of Israel, the Torah and the Jewish people to vote Likud."

She immediately corrected herself, accompanied by a chuckle.
