This time it only took the elected parties a week to disillusion the public.
Lieberman has proved not to be so hawkish—he demands that Kadima join the government. Kadima said in a statement that Livni would only lead the government—or stay in the opposition. Thus, Lieberman’s demand for a wide government is a politically correct way to nominate Livni for prime minister.
Lieberman is not deterred by the fact that Kadima ignored his “No loyalty, no citizenship” demand. In fact, there was no such demand in the first place: Lieberman suggested a moderate, “No national service, no national insurance” slogan, and the loyalty-citizenship slogan was developed by an advertising consultant who worked for Yisrael Beitenu.
