Kadima MK's should show some backbone and split from the party now. It's no good saying "If Mofaz does or doesn't do this that or the other then…". Mofaz has already sold Kadima's soul for 14 months' lease hire of a Volvo and if he was prepared to plan this deal whilst promising not to join Likud as part of his campaign for the leadership of Kadima it's quite clear that he is not going to pull out at any stage. So Likud have a guaranteed 14 month hold on power. The best thing that could happen would be a coalescence of the dissident part of Kadima, Avodah, Yesh Atid, and even Meretz. 14 months is long enough to form a coherent set of policies and present a credible alternative to the Israeli people at the next election, rather than to arrive at the election as a disparate group of parties with conflicting interests and the unattractive prospect of 6 weeks of behind the scenes horse trading after the public has voted. Israel needs less political parties, not more.
