The dismissal of Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon on Tuesday night had an immediate dampening effect on the right wingís criticism of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the offensive in the Gaza Strip.
Danon was fired after publicly opposing the cabinetís decision to accept a cease-fire with Hamas.

It’s not easy, Starry.
Cabinet ministers in Israel have their own popular constituencies. In the USA, they are mostly just presidential loyalists.
Netanyahu is signaling his move even farther left, and not just on Gaza.
It’s more like these WHINERS are GRANDSTANDING at the expense of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu while he’s trying to take care of the security and safety of Israelis and their homeland. These whiners don’t deserve to represent anyone with that type of behavior when Hamas is firing rockets all over Israel.
Danon is Chairman of World Likud and a leader of the conservative “Tea Party” branch of the Likud, Netanyahu’s party. To his credit, Netanyahu uas not abandoned the Likud the way that Sharon did when he started Kadima to sell the Jews of Gaza down the river and start the process of Hamas dominance there.
We don’t cheer when GOPe purges the Republican party here and we should not celebrate when Netanyahu marginalizes passionate lovers of Israel from the right like Danon and Bennett — especially when Netanyahu cozies up with Tzipi Livni and other leftists who used to affiliate with the Likud.
Danon mever was a whiner and that kind of unsupported charActer assassination is a sly attempt to delegitimize conservatives. For Star Traveler to say this is comparable to John McCain’s former campaign advisors slamming Sarah Palin.
Shame on Danon for being a Class A JERK.
Danon is likely to become head of Likud and probably Prime Minister. He also opposed Sharon’s surrender. It was Sharon’s surrender that leads directly to the current situation.
A jerk like Danon can’t come close to filling Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s shoes. And I doubt that Class A Jerks like that could ever come close to Netanyahu in being the longest serving Prime Minister in Israeli history!
Writing in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS doesn’t make an argument any more COMPELLING.
I will see your Ha’aretz and raise you an Arutz Sheva for a conservative view of the situation. Danon is not a whiner and it is dishonest to characterize him that way, all the more so by writing it in capital letters.
Good news! Bibi can move to the US and run for the Senate, probably from Pennsylvania. Heck, he’s a lot more American than our current president. Run Bibi, run!
It’s a style ... sorry if you don’t like it ...
I suppose next you’re going to comment on what clothes I should wear ... LOL ...
You got that right ... :-) ...
Well ... I wouldn’t want that DOG yapping and biting at my heels if I were a Prime Minister!
Indon’t care what clothes you wear, or if you wear any at all.
Incare that you use capital letters, LOL’s and smiley faces as part of your toolbox to single out conservatives for ridicule or opprobium, to mischaracterize liberal positions as conservative ones, and to try and place certain positions outside of the realm of civilized discussion.
I object to your efforts to fundamentally transform Free Republic. Wear what you want.
I guess that means you don’t want to be my friend! I’m heartbroken ... NOT! ... :-) ...
So was Saddam in Iraq. Is that your point? LOL!!
I don’t think you will have too many friends here as more FReepers learn about the positions you espouse and how you falsely misrepresent them.
In a free society in which one has to go through fiercely competitive elections ... that’s saying a whole lot more than Saddam and his murderous thugs, ruling by force and violence.
But with the kind of mental deficiency you’re exhibiting here with this “example” and comparison you provide, I don’t expect you’ll have the least clue as to what that means ... :-) ...
Everyone has had over ten years of seeing my support for Israel to show their non-support of Israel and complain about mine.
As far as friends ... I don’t collect electronic friends but deal in real life people, thank you.
