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

Submitted by alan jay gerber (United States), Jan 6, 2006 at 09:24

your assessment is right on the mark. kadimah is an aberration. even ben-gurion, israel's last strongman ,couldn't swing a third party togerther with peres.

we can now only speculate as to what political fate awaited kadimah. things as you indicate will now normalize. people will now take a closer look at labour's peretz and his advocacy of a return to socialism and of his strike-prone policies that made life a misery to millions of israelis as head of the histadrut.

conversly,netanyahu's record as sharon's finance minister is something positive for him to run on. put together this leaves the mind numbing security situation to answer for.THAT will be the campaign. alan jay gerber cedarhurst ny
