    "Most members joined the party to vote in the primaries, even though they would never vote Likud in the general election (effectively giving them two votes for the Knesset – note to reader: In this election, Likud Beitenu picked up only one seat over the Green Line, and in many settlements with significant Likud membership, not one vote was cast for the party). They became the most active and vocal Likud members, incessantly harassing and browbeating Likud MKs, and finally in the recent Likud primaries, entirely dictating the realistic spots on the Likud list – ousting anyone one who failed not just to support the Settler movement but to carry out its instructions to the letter. Hence Dan Meridor, Mickey Eitan and Benny Begin (whose only crime after years of impeccable service, was to broker a compromise with the residents of the illegal settlement of Migron – where any form of "territorial compromise" is a cardinal sin in the eyes of the ideologues), were effectively pushed off the Likud list. Those looking for the traditional hawkish, conservative but pragmatic voices of the Likud on the current list will have a hard time finding them".
