Mofaz: I Run from the Likud, Like Israel Ran from Gush Katif

The AP reports: Israel's defense minister quit the hard-line Likud Party on Sunday to join the new centrist party led by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Shaul Mofaz made the decision after Sharon promised to let him retain the defense portfolio if his new Kadima Party wins upcoming parliamentary elections, Mofaz's spokeswoman Talia Somech said. Mofaz, a former Israeli military chief, had been seeking the Likud leadership, but polls showed him trailing. Tovya says: No actually, he left the Likud because he's a loser too. He knew he wouldn't win out in the primaries, and bolted the party. That makes him a great Kadima politician. Remember kids, politics is 1% substance, and 99% hot gas.

It was also reported that Mofaz sent some 17,000(correct me if I'm wrong) letters to Likud members urging them to vote for him because he would never leave his "home". Also, it seems Kadima has become the backwards safe-haven for all illegite Israeli politicians ala Zahi Hanegbi, Shimon Peres, and the list goes on and on.

Be'tikva, Eitan.

seems like the backwards party will win local elections. But hey, we've had worse things happen here so I hope we survive Sharon like we survived Rabin-oh...whoops:)
