Yael Patir, Israel director of the left-leaning U.S. Jewish body, sat down with Haaretz to talk about Trump, the gap between U.S. and Israeli Jews, and the growing anger at the Israeli peace camp. Though she concedes boycott efforts by some on the left have a negative effect, she rejects calls to keep peace efforts local.01:12 01.05.16 | 2 comments
Despite the fact he is a crook and most of the Kadima faithful wanted Olmert out because of his failings as a PM & the fact he was crooked now for some reason they want him back. If he were to return as Kadima leader which I don't see how he can at this point considering Kadima had their primaries and I can't see Mofaz just offering to step aside. If though he were to return the biggest loser would be Labor because alot of Kadima voters are defecting to Labor because they know the party is going into meltdown. There is no way Kadima can win an election under Olmert, Livni or Mofaz but if Olmert does return and encourage people to vote Kadima it will split the leftist vote and all those Kadima people who were planning to vote Labor will go back to Kadima. The result will be a smaller Kadima and a smaller Labor because the vote has been split and Bibi isn't going to lose anybody to Olmert or Shelly Y so no leftist party will come close to his majority because we have two smaller ones rather than one big.
