Israel has a problem

It will have a..ehh...leadership crisis the moment Sharon is no longer leading the country, it seems: That's why Sharon's new party, Kadima, is so popular, even though it has no grass-roots activists, no organization, no history—and no future. It's a one-man, one-time show enabling the public to avoid the crucial leadership issue. "If Sharon is not capable of running," said someone interviewed by Israeli radio, "this in itself will not make Netanyahu or [Labor leader Amir] Peretz good candidates." Forty-two percent of Labor voters—Peretz voters—when asked which candidate they would prefer if it were necessary to decide whether Israel should attack nuclear sites in Iran, chose Sharon. Peretz was picked by only 17 percent. When asked who is more suited to be prime minister, 15 percent said Peretz, 43 percent Sharon. Hmm...........

Don't worry, SM, this kind of vacuum always get filled. The nature does not abide emptiness.

Unfortunately, the space in question sometimes gets filled with refuse...

Too bad ;-)

Sharon's got everything over the Arab leaders.

1) He's a better General
2) He's respected and loved by his troops Jewish and Arab.
3) He's a 100x better politician.
4) He's respected (well liked) by his fellow politicians.
5) He's respected (if not well liked) by the public.

You name me 1 Arab politicians that 1 of those strongly let alone 2. Arafat had NONE. His own people and fellow Arab leaders dreamed of his death.

I should add 500x better General/military man.

And that I meant Arafat's own inner circle couldn't stand him.
