Whither Kadima?

Tzipi Livni must decide on her first step. If she comes up short on the number of MKs needed to break away or if she decides against a split, she will most likely resign rather than stay on under Mofaz’s leadership. Whether or not Livni leaves, Kadima will break into two camps- those who will support Mofaz and those who will try to find another political home.

Shaul Mofaz and Jewish Settlements: He Knows Everything But Learns Nothing

It appears that Tuesday night's big winner of the Kadima party primary vote, like the Royal house of Bourbon, has not forgotten anything and has not learned anything from his role in dismantling Gush Katif. Speaking at the NY Israel Policy Forum, former Defense Minister and former IDF Chief of Staff Shaul Mofaz laid down his plan for a permanent Palestinian State. If you or your loved ones reside in Judea and Samaria – be afraid, be very afraid.

Mofaz Wins Kadima Primary Polls by 62% to Livni’s 38%

Out of 95 thousand registered Kadima party members, only 40% voted by 10 p.m., when the polls closed. It was rumored that left-leaning Haim Ramon was planning to resign as Chair of the Kadima Council. Along with the Mofaz win, this may suggest that the party is moving to the right. It may also mean that Kadima could not be taken for granted as partnering with the left on issues such as religious vs. secular tensions.

Israeli Voters Step Decidedly To The Right

The Israeli election was on the surface a tie between Likud, led by Benjamin Netanyahu, and Kadima, led by Tzipi Livni (who replaced Ehud Olmert as party chief).
