Smiling faces don?t always tell the truth: Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu shake hands at Likud convention in Tel Aviv last weekend.


Prime Minister Ariel Sharon remains a relatively popular figure in Israel but not in his own political party. A Gallup poll out last Friday gave Sharon a 55% approval rating and indicated that if elections were held now, Likud would more than double its number of Knesset seats.

Asked whom they preferred as chairman of the Likud party and the next Likud candidate for prime minister, Israelis chose Sharon over his arch-rival, former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, by a margin of 15 percentage points, 47 to 32.
