  • Poll Shows Kadima isn't Dead Yet

    A Panels Politics poll conducted for the Knesset Channel predicts that Kadima – until recently the Knesset's largest party with 28 seats – will receive 3 seats in the next Knesset. Most other polls predict that Kadima, which was created by Ariel Sharon following the Gaza Disengagement, will completely disappear from the Knesset. Otzma Leyisrael, headed by MKs Aryeh Eldad and Michael Ben Ari, also receives three seats in this poll. The poll is largely consistent with most other polls in showing that Likud / Yisrael Beytenu will receive 35 seats, whereas Labor would receive 17 seats. Bayit Yehudi would...

    Shaul Mofaz, Kadima chaiman responded to remarks made by Bennett to Channel 2 during an interview in which he said, "If I would receive an order to remove a Jew from his house and expel him, me personally, my conscience would not allow it. I would ask the commander for an exemption." Mofaz reacted, saying, "There is no place in Israel, not in the regular army and not in the reserve army, to disobey orders. One's political views should not affect his ability to perform a task. An evil spirit calling for disobedience in exchange for a handful of votes...

    Chairman Shaul Mofaz of the Kadima party said, Sunday evening, that it was possible to reach a peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority.

  • Unity Coalition Crumbles, Mofaz Shuns Netanyahu

    Kadima party chairman Shaul Mofaz angrily rejected a planned meeting to meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Tuesday after the Prime Minister dissolved a panel, led by Kadima, for a new draft law. Prime Minister Netanyahu disbanded the committee, headed by Kadima Knesset Member Yochanan Plesner, without Cabinet approval, a move that could be a political ploy to put Mofaz in a corner and force him to quit the national unity coalition that is only several weeks old. The committee was working on legislation to replace the “Tal Law,” which focuses on the enlistment of hareidi religious youth, with an...

    The United States is worried that Shaul Mofaz and his Kadima party’s joining a unity government with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu could result in an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities at any given moment, according to a report on Channel 10 News on Thursday. U.S. government officials told Channel 10 News that they believe a Likud-Kadima joing government could make a decision about an Israeli attack on Iran at any moment and perhaps even before the U.S. presidential elections in November. .....

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and opposition chairman MK Shaul Mofaz (Kadima) reached a surprise agreement early Tuesday morning to form a national unity government. The move came as the Knesset was preparing to disperse for early elections, which were expected to be scheduled for September 4. Under the agreement, Kadima will join Netanyahu's government and commit to supporting its policies through the end of its term in late 2013. Mofaz is expected to be appointed deputy prime minister, as well as minister without portfolio.

    Opposition leader Shaul Mofaz (Kadima) told the The New York Times that he would "respond to 100% of the territorial demands of the Palestinians" if elected Prime Minister. “I intend to replace Netanyahu,” Mr. Mofaz, 63, said. “I will not join his government.” Mofaz said that he believed Israel should keep the main settlement blocs, but that he would give the Palestinian Authority as much land from sovereign Israeli ground as he kept from Judea and Samaria. He added that he believes it is possible to reach an agreement on the borders and security within one year. When asked about...

    But Livni is seen as far more of a “dove” - someone who is prepared to compromise the nation’s strategic assets and historical rights - than Meir was, a fact that left Palestinian leaders breathing a sigh of relief after the news confirmed her slim victory over Mofaz. Livni has indicated that she will continue down Olmert’s path to peace, which sees Israel surrendering nearly all of Judea and Samaria for a Palestinian Arab state in order to fend off a perceived demographic threat.

    The announcement by Israeli Prime Minister Olmert that he would not contest the leadership in his Kadima Party’s internal elections next month and would resign as soon as a new Prime Minister is in office was widely expected. But it still set off a political tumult in Israel, partly because the realistic range of options for his successor is so wide. Olmert may indeed step down as soon as mid-October but he could also end up staying in office until spring of 2009. The transition is a gradual process. First come the internal elections within the Kadima Party. The two...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Iran is heading toward a major breakthrough in its nuclear program, an Israeli official said on Friday, as the White House warned Iran could face new sanctions if it ignores an international freeze offer. "As soon as 2010 (Iran) will have the option to reach (uranium production) at military levels," Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Shaul Mofaz told an audience in Washington, adding that this would be an "unacceptable" development. Oil prices rose $4 in early Friday trade after the warning by Mofaz stirred concerns of a possible attack on the OPEC nation that would disrupt supplies. There...

    While Olmert did promise to step down following the Kadima primary, that move was conditioned on the winner of the internal election successfully forming a new majority government. It is widely believed that both of the Kadima leadership frontrunners, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz, will have great difficulty accomplishing that task. Should the winner of the primary fail to form a new majority government, Olmert will by default remain prime minister of the current government until new national elections can be held, probably in March or April of next year. Olmert made no commitment to refrain...

    THE most important primary for our 2008 election may be yet to come - the Kadima Party primary in Israel in mid or late September. It pits liberal-leaning Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni against hardliner and former Army Chief of Staff Shaul Mofaz. (Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is expected to sit out the contest and concentrate on staying out of jail.)

    JERUSALEM -- An Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear sites looks "unavoidable" given the apparent failure of sanctions to deny Tehran technology with bomb-making potential, one of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's deputies said on Friday. "If Iran continues with its programme for developing nuclear weapons, we will attack it. The sanctions are ineffective," Transport Minister Shaul Mofaz told the mass-circulation Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper. "Attacking Iran, in order to stop its nuclear plans, will be unavoidable," said the former army chief who has also been defence minister...

    The Eros B spy satellite, which was launched into space last week by Israel to monitor Iranian nuclear facilities and activities, has reportedly settled into orbit and has begun sending high-resolution images back to earth. According to Israel’s Yedioth Ahranot newspaper, the Eros B satellite is fully operational and has begun sending images to earth from the different parts of the world, focusing particularly on Iran. An Israeli intelligence official who wanted to remain anonymous told that the development of the satellite was “timely,” referring to Iran’s nuclear program...

    Mofaz defends raid to capture minister's assassins Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz said that no responsible government would allow assassins of a government minister to go free. He said it should have been clear to the Palestinian Authority that the killers of Rahavam Zeevi would not evade the long arm of Israel. The Jericho jail was summer camp and not a real prison, Mofaz told Kol Israel. He denied any connection between the raid in Jericho and the upcoming elections nor, he said, was there coordination with the British or Americans regarding planning when their monitors were leaving the prison site....

    JERUSALEM - Israel's defense minister warned Tuesday the incoming Hamas prime minister would be assassinated if the Islamic militant group resumes attacks, but the acting Israeli premier also pledged a drastic cut in spending on Jewish settlements in the West Bank. Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and others in his front-running Kadima Party delivered these messages just three weeks before the Israeli election. The centrist Kadima is trying to court both hardline and dovish voters, and has been sliding in the polls. Party officials have been more forthcoming recently about their post-election agenda, apparently in hopes of stemming the erosion...

According to the Israeli daily Haaretz, a government led by the Kadima party will attempt to implement another unilateral disengagement or withdrawal from areas in Judea and Samaria within a year after the March elections. Mofaz believes that the election of Hamas to the leadership of the Palestinian Authority will only...
