Final opinion polls Friday put Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's rightwing Likud party four seats behind its center-left rival with four days to go before a general election.A poll in the top-selling Yediot Aharonot newspaper showed the Zionist Union winning 26 of the 120 seats in the Israeli parliament, or Knesset, against 22 for Likud.All the polls showed the Joint List, a newly formed alliance of Israel's main Arab parties, in third, with 13 seats.Friday's polls left Likud shaken, with spokeswoman Noga Katz reiterating Netanyahu's call on rightwingers to support his party over smaller parties on the right and far-right.With polls showing Netanyahu's natural allies on the right likely to win the most seats overall, he has a clear advantage in piecing together a coalition and may instead be tasked by President Reuven Rivlin with forming a government.
