Divorce Scuttles Shotgun Likud/Kadima Wedding

by Stephen Lendman

Shotgun weddings often produce quick and/or ugly divorces. This one was no exception. When announced, public outrage greeted it. 

So-called unity sounded more like surrender. Secret talks arranged it. Israel's faux democracy sustained another blow. What Likud's Benjamin Netanyahu and Kadima's Shaul Mofaz agreed to came asunder. More on why below.

On May 9, Knesset members voted 71 - 23 for a new unity government. Mofaz became deputy prime minister. Netanyahu stayed head of government.

Mofaz served previously as IDF Chief of General Staff. He also held various ministerial posts. 

As former IDF head and defense minister, he's indictable for crimes of war and against humanity. He murdered thousands of Palestinians. He participated in two wars against Lebanon. 

Netanyahu has his own cross to bear. He's a world class thug. Like Mofaz, he's guilty of high crimes against peace. He's an embarrassment to democratic government. He's surrounded by equally hardline types. He and Mofaz made an inglorious pact.
