      The crowd at dkos that believes in the further existence of Israel as a Jewish democratic state alongside a free Palestine.

      Nevermind that this position is not the Likud position and that most of the pro-israeli-existence caucus at dkos has expressed sympathies towards Meretz or at the rightmost extreme, Labor.  Are there even any Shinui or Kadima supporters here?  Let alone the Likud.

      •  Actually, (0+ / 0-)

        I appreciate your viewpoint, but I freely admit that I vote for Likud.  Mostly for economic reasons, but also because right now, they're the only party with real leadership.

        Plus, while none of the "zionist occupied america" crowd here believe me, I maintain that if peace comes, in the form of the 2-state solution that I, too, believe in, it is going to come from the right, not the center or the left.

        Plus, I really don't like Beilin and Sarid, and Peretz and Olmert are buffoons.

          A friend of mine who just got out of the IDF was a Meretz volunteer in the Sarid days.. he voted for Likud in the most recent election, disagreeing with their policy on the territories because he knew they were gonna get housed but he wanted them to get enough votes for Netanyahu to be finance minister.

          Although, WRT Labor you may be wrong in the near future if Barak wins the primary.  He achieved peace with Lebanon (temporarily, heh) and gave it a damned fair shot with the Palestinians.  I'm not Israeli so I won't be voting but I think Barak might have something to offer.

            Barak said that Olmert should resign, but that if Barak wins the Labor primary in a couple of weeks, he'll be happy to sit as Defense Minister in a "temporary" Olmert government.

            The nightly news shows are presenting it as the end of Barak's candidacy.

        I almost forgot to mention, if you really, really, want to get my blood boiling, mention Shinui.  Thank Hashem they imploded.

          I don't know that much about them, just that they didn't stand for anything except "the center" and Kadima took that over so they were finished.

          What's your problem with them?

          •  They're anti-religious (1+ / 0-)

            Their only platform was to get rid of the Ministry of Religious Affairs.  It's not that they feel too much money goes to the religious, or any other specific issue.  They just really hated the religious.

            But, you have to laugh at a party that goes from 17 mandates to 0 in one election cycle.
