Answer: Likud

Likud is a nationalist coalition party formed in Israel in 1973. Its name literally means "union or combination."

According to the Jewish Virtual Library (http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Politics/LikudParty.html): "The Likud (Union) was formed by the joining together of Free Center, Laam and Gahal in preparation for the 1973 elections, the Likud has become one of Israel?s major conservative parties. Since 1973, the Likud has either been the ruling party in the Knesset or the leading opposition party. Likud?s leaders Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Shamir and Benjamin Netanyahu have all served as prime minister."
