Likud Gains Popularity for Future Elections
The Yisrael Beitenu Party left the Israeli government today led by Avigdor Lieberman. Now Ehud Olmert, prime minister, is left with 67 MP out of 120 in the parliament. Two other parties, Shas and the Labour party warned they could also pull out of the coalition. Then there would be a new general election.
Lieberman pulled out because of Olmert deciding to give Palestinians land they inherited in 1967. He is against negotiating land for peace. He and others feel nothing will change. The conflict and terror would not stop. I note that this is precisely what has happened in Gaza.
