Israel National News reports that today, Israeli Defense Minister Mofaz quites the Likud party to join Ariel Sharon's new Kadima party...
Defense Minister Sha'ul Mofaz announced unabashedly this morning that he was abandoning not only his race to lead the Likud, but also the Likud itself - and is joining Sharon's Kadima party.
Likud MK Ayoub Kara said, "Mofaz is abandoning the Likud the same way he abandoned his soldiers at the battle of Joseph's Tomb. The mask has been removed from Mofaz's face, and he has been revealed as just another two-bit politician who is concerned only about himself."
Mofaz was IDF Chief of Staff in October 2000 when, at the beginning of the Oslo War, Arabs in the Shechem region attacked IDF soldiers guarding Joseph's Tomb. The soldier Madhat Yusuf was critically wounded, but the Israeli decision-makers preferred not to use force to rescue him, but rather trusted the PA's promises - and he bled to death.
What can you say when a non-Jewish representative of the Likud party calls an Israeli Jew on his own BS? Anything for power, not to loose your seat, the blood of the soldiers not withstanding.
