Natan Sharansky is one of the founders of the One Jerusalem activist website, and this helps the webmasters to get to know more in depth what goes on in the Likud. Thus, they were also able to confirm
that any news reports implying that the party might join a Kadima-led government are far from true. No, they are not, and even Sharansky himself is against it. On the other hand, Silvan Shalom, it seems, may have wanted to join a government with Ehud Olmert. If he does, then I think the best answer I have to that is - Silvan, enough already. You caused enough damage on your part by not fulfilling your own post and seeing that campaign trips were made to places like Ashkelon, which was your assignment. As Makor Rishon
reported last week, that was one of the reasons why the Likud was damaged - because Silvan Shalom did not work on the campaign steps he was supposed to, and thus caused the party damage.
And I think it's time for him to retire from politics.
