Kadima - one step forwards, two backwards. The disengagement provided the Hamas with its successful campaign slogan:" Ten years of negotiation, five years of Intifada." Never mind that daily rockets now land in the Negev and Ashkelon and Ashdod and Sderot.So the head of the party and its moving force is now incapacitated? Replace him! Never mind that Ehud Olmert was the worst Mayor Jerusalem ever had. A man who turned the city into a filthy, poor backwater full of ugly high-rises.He is a man who stands for nothing and has accomplished even less.Never mind that the Party has collected such Israeli political leftist luminaries as Dalia Itzik, Haim Ramon, Ruhama Avraham, and Omri Sharon. Never mind that Tzachi Hanegbi now sits with them, and that Avi Dichter, a former head of intelligence, who said: "The numbers speak for themselves.It is clear that disengagement has increased terror" is number five on their list!Kadima is in the middle all right. In the middle of no where.
