    Labor is anxious for Kadima to join the coalition, as if this will strengthen the peace forces against the Russians (Lieberman) and the Religious. But the problem is Likud itself, the majority members of which do not believe in peace and prefer holding on to the Territories. Next time the idea of joining the coalition is raised, Livni should come up with a counter proposal: Let Netanyahu split away from Likud (with at least 7 Knesset members as required by law, but current estimates is that about 12 relative "moderates" are available there), let them join Kadima and Netanyahu will REMAIN Prime Minister. If Netanyahu is really interested in peace and not in excuses, then he really belongs in Kadima because this is how that party was formed, and other than the peace issue there is NO difference between the two parties. Let Likud fall into the hands of the ideological nuts and religious fanatics. It carries with it a lousy ideology.
