Kadima primaries: left and the very left

Livni and Mofaz, two prospective candidates for Kadima’s leadership, squared off at the Masorti conference. The participants competed in anti-religious rhetoric, a fitting attitude at an event hosted by Conservative ‘rabbis.’

Mofaz demanded more socialist income redistribution and bragged about his opposition to the Tal Law, which when originally introduced was a sensible enough measure designed to involve the haredim in the army.

Livni declared her intention to build a coalition government without the haredim, thus excluding a quarter of Israel’s population from decision-making. We doubt she would dare to state publicly a desire to exclude Arab parties from government.

It is odd that the Kadima party, which was formed for the sole purpose of pushing for Gaza withdrawal, is alive and kicking despite the admitted failure of the withdrawal.
