Gaza Fallout?

Israeli political analysts think Sharon is in big trouble over the Gaza evacuation and are predicting he may lose next year's elections to Netenyaho. Now, let me just assure you right now and get it over with: It won't happen. Sharon is here to stay. Just trust me on this one.

I think Sharon has decided there will not be peace in our life time so he has decided what his borders should be.

Hamas clearly does not want peace.

A PO poll in today's Maariv predicts that if Sharon loses the Likud to Netanyahu, Likud will lose the general elections. The poll also examines several other possibilities, in which Sharon either wins the Likud or forms some new political alliance, and in all these combinations he is predicted to win the general elections.

Anat, you know he would. The israelis have tried Netenyaho for Prime minister, and they found him lacking. I have no doubt in my mind that Sharon would win in any scenario.

In order for such a confident far sight wisdom to prevail, first you need to establish constant and stable circumstances which is impossible. Now to say he is to win in any scenario is far too ambitious for an absolute optimist.
I personally think Israelis might go for change next elections but then politics there change everyday.

Not only sharon but arabs too dont want peace & i dont see anyone ready for it in the next 100 years.
To say sharon will win in any scenario is a bit too ambitious even for the absolute optimist.
I presonally think Israelis will seek a change next elections but politics there change every day.
