Mordecai Nissan: Kadima's treachery must be punished at the polls
"The Kadima Party is by far the most corrupt of all the parties running in the elections... There has never been as extreme an example of the crushing of democratic norms and governmental correctness as in the case of Kadima, via the actions of Ariel Sharon and his partners in that political crime... I am not referring to a particular action by a given Knesset Member. Rather, with Kadima, a blanket treachery occurred against the voters of the Likud via the mass desertion of those they elected, and with a total distortion of the national desire and the conventional rules guiding the relationship between citizens and their elected representatives.Absolutely correct. They must be sent a clear message that we do not approve of the gross violations of law and democracy that they've committed in past months. Which is exactly why it is strongly advised to go and vote to make sure that the Kadima "party" is sent home.
"... Kadima, a party that did not run in the elections of 2003, has been occupying the government chairs for many months, without having ever been elected. in 2003, the voters overwhelmingly chose the Likud Party, out of a clear ideological solidarity with it. But these votes were later transferred, unjustly, to the Kadima Party. How is possible that this public rape occurred without a protest from the media or from the political arena?
"...Those who abandoned the Likud, such as Ehud Olmert, Tzippy Livny, Meir Sheetrit, Avraham Hirshson, Ze'ev Boim, Roni Bar-On, Ruhama Avraham and others, abused those who sent them with a disgraceful act, with total conceit and with no shame. This is a breach of the unwritten charter between voter and representative... The members of Kadima veered from the customary Likud policy, which supported the settlement enterprise and not withdrawing for nothing in return.
"...On March 28, the citizens of Israel will be able to settle accounts with the people of Kadima. This issue must stand at the center of the electoral campaign, in which the voter is asked to express his opinion on what this band of strong-armed politicians did to our cultural fabric and the political establishment. These vote-stealers, norm-destroyers and public liars deserve nothing less than total political exile."

And, here's something good said by a Labor party member, of all people - that Kadima is panicking, for good reason:
(IsraelNN.com) MK Ofir Pines-Paz (Labor-Meimad) told a Labor Party campaign meeting Sunday night in Beit Shemesh that the Kadima Party has become hysterical due to its sudden falling in the polls.Yes, they are panicking and embarrassed alright. Because by now, as they probably realize, the polls just aren't reliable, and it's apparent that Kadima just won't get the results they wish they would. But to make sure that they don't, that's why it's strongly advised to go to vote, to make sure that Kadima's members get the punishment they deserve.
"Have you noticed that Kadima is in hysteria? That they are panicking? That they are losing their heads? They have good reason to," Pines-Paz said, to a loud response from the crowd: "They are afraid!"
"I am embarrassed for Shimon Peres, who decided to attack the Labor Party. Shimon, I am embarrassed for you," Pines-Paz said, referring to the former Labor chairman who quit the party after losing to Amir Peretz despite polls predicting an opposite outcome.
