Kadima & Ariel Sharon: Guilt by Association... Part Two
Let us put aside for a moment the fact that the only two things that Ariel Sharon's new party, Kadima (Onward), will move forward with are the continued expulsion of Jews from their homes / destruction of the Jewish communities in Judea & Samaria and continued corruption. (For more on that, see Part 1).
What should be of great concern to the Israeli / Jewish public is that while the media keeps labeling Kadima as a centrist party, and those who oppose Sharon as "Hardliners", Sharon is planning on building both his party and any future ruling coalitions with those who are against the very idea of Israel existing as a Jewish State.
1) Exhibit A - The Arabs of Israel (Courtesy of the Jerusalem Post):
A member of Israel's Islamist Movement considers joining Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's new political party... Sami Issa, Head of Kafr Kassem Local Council, is one of many Arab Israeli leaders who were approached by members of Sharon's new party to join its ranks...
The report by investigative reporter Mohammed Watad revealed that Sharon was trying to draft Arab leaders from all over Israel to join his party in order to gain the support of the general Arab population in Israel.
The southern faction of the Islamist Movement of Israel works to achieve unity among Arabs to have a greater voice and influence in Israeli politics. Its leaders call on uniting all Arab parties to be a single force to counter the influence of the Jewish and Zionist parties.
Issa is not likely to do that without a promise of something more than just a seat on Kadima. Sharon's associates have told the press that Sharon would give a ministry to an Arab.
2) Exhibit B - Meretz - Yahad (Courtesy of Ha'aretz):
Meretz-Yahad Chair Yossi Beilin announced at his party's convention Sunday that Meretz would consider joining forces with Ariel Sharon's party Kadima if he forms the next government.
And what does the political party Meretz - Yahad stand for? (Courtesy of Meretz USA):
(Meretz) supports a genuine peace between the State of Israel and its neighbors (including the Palestinian people) based on a negotiated land-for-peace solution. Meretz USA supports full civil and human rights for Israeli citizens, regardless of ethnicity, race, religion, gender, national origin, or sexual orientation... Meretz USA supports the principle of separation of religion and state and believes that religion should be a matter of personal conscience.
Kadima and Ariel Sharon have found a home with the Arabs of Israel who seek to "peacefully & democratically" turn Israel into Palestine, and with their Jewish counterparts of Meretz - Yahad who will do all in their power, in the name of pluralism, democracy and social justice to assist them in destroying the Jewish State.
And, last but not least... How could Sharon resist pairing up with Israel's biggest loser and the man personally reposnible for the thousands of Jewish lives that have been lost and destroyed since the start of the "Peace Process"...
3) Exhibit C - Two words: Shimon Peres(Courtesy of the Jerusalem Post):
Sharon spoke to Peres more than once on Sunday and he offered him to return to his cabinet post of vice premier with additional responsibility over negotiations with the Palestinians and the peace process.
Maybe Ariel Sharon, heading his new party Kadima, together with Shimon "Oslo Accords" Peres, will once again revert to becoming the father of the settlement movement in Israel - just this time it will be to help in building the Arab State of Palestine on the ruins of what was once the Jewish State of Israel, and once that is done, Sharon and Peres will ride off into the sunset, having finally created a New Middle East.
