Will A New Third Party Survived Sharon's Departure?

Reader comment on item: [After Sharon:] Israeli Politics Will Revert to Its Past

Submitted by AnneM (United States), Jan 6, 2006 at 07:06

With the departure of Ariel Sharon from political life, his departure brings with it an honest question. As what has happened often in the United States, when a third party founder/leader leaves. As often happens, the party ends up losing members. Will the new Kadima party fade now that Ariel Sharon has left the Isreali political scene?

With the Ariel Sharon era now over, look for Israel to return to what is best for its interest, keeping itself secure. Look for Bibi to win the upcoming elections.
