Tzachi Hanegbi of Kadima, a former minister, announced several days ago that he plans to return to his first political home Likud. In an event Thursday night, he started to gather disgruntled Kadima members in an attempt to bring as many party members as possible back to Likud with him.
Hanegbi addressed those at the event and explained his disapproval for current Kadima head MK Shaul Mofaz, and his disagreement with Mofazs decision to leave the coalition.
Mofazs hasty exit from the coalition just weeks after joining upset many of his own MKs. He made the decision to leave without consulting with many senior party members, among them Hanegbi.
Hanegbis impending departure from the party and his encouragement to others to join him, have infuriated Kadima activists. The Kadima supporters website Yallah Kadima blasted Hanegbi this week.
Describing Hanegbi, the site said, He had the aura of a future leader Others saw him as a threat, a deceptive politician and nothing more, someone willing to dirty his hands with political tricks who had no real message. It turns out the latter were correct.
For Hanegbi, power is the goal, not a means, the site continued. His plan to leave Kadima reflects nothing but fear for his seat in Knesset, the writer accused, an attempt to leave a party that is doing badly in the polls for one that is doing better in the polls.
