Livni is right, the “government is supposed to advance processes and represent the good of the country.” That is precisely why Kadima must disappear. The history of Israeli politics has had its fair share of corruption, blackmail, extortion, and outright filth (see: Alex Goldfarb, otherwise known as a stain upon the Jewish people).
Tzipi Livni is nearly as good of an example as Ehud Olmert of a hypocrite attempting to take the reins in leading Israel towards utter oblivion. This is a person who grew up as in the political atmosphere of Herut, and as such, was a strong believer in the right of the Jewish people to the land of Israel. Today, however, she is content with following Olmert’s lead, and doing what she can to curry favor with the nations of the world, who love us oh so much, only to get her name in history books.
Netanyahu will likely win the upcoming elections, which will probably be scheduled for sometime in either February or March. I am not his biggest fan, to say the least. However, when presented with the option of Livni, the opportunist, Barak, the one who would sell his mother in order to get Bill Clinton to like him, and Netanyahu – I am forced to choose the latter, who at the very least would improve Israel’s financial situation.
Possibly the most absurd, yet very sad, thing in this article is this: “An early election could kill off the already slim chances of meeting Washington’s objective of an Israeli peace deal with Palestinians before President George W. Bush leaves office in January.”
Mazal Mualem, who wrote this, clearly has not the least bit of understanding of the ongoings between Israel and its neighbors. Is there anyone at all in their right mind who thought there was any chance of peace in the foreseeable future, let alone within the next few months? Any such person has no business writing for a newspaper on a topic about which they clearly do not the first thing.
Good for new elections. Bad there won’t be anyone winning who is actually deserving of the position.
