Popular Likud MK Leaves Israelis Hanging, Then Just Leaves

Outgoing Communications and Social Affairs Minister Moshe Kahlon parted ways with politics awkwardly, and he’ll be left with a stain that won’t fade for a while. Conclusion: If you’re leaving, leave.

To Moshe Kahlon's credit, we can say this: At least he decided quickly. The outgoing communications and social affairs minister spared us an endless saga of suffering, misgivings, deliberations and consultations a la Ehud Olmert or Tzipi Livni. He dropped the issue of running his own list for Knesset as quickly as he took it up. It took only three days - three days of euphoria, of wild dreams, of virtual highs.
