“15 Kadima MKs Oppose Golan Withdrawal,” No Unequivocal Opposition

Commentary;

One surmises a lot of hot air being blown in the Kadima party. Is there even one Kadima MK willing to bolt the party over the proposition of a Golan Withdrawal? They seem as equally lame a bunch as Shas and their opening position of leaving the government over Jerusalem talks. And we all know what happened to that pledge — as worthless as spent toiletpaper.

There is no backbone, no character and not an ounce of moral intergrity to be found amongst any of the Kadima MKs, nor can any be found amongst roughly 118 of 120 Knesset members.

If there were any menschlicheit amongst this entire motley crew, they would loathe return to these conditions which Hillel Fendel revisits below;

Syria controlled the Golan for 19 years, beginning in 1948, and used it to systematically shell and attack the Jewish towns towns below. 140 Israelis were killed in these attacks, many more were injured, and heavy property damage was also inflicted.

Bottomline; whether one is talking about the Golan, or about Hevron, or about Jerusalem or Gush Katif or Yehuda and Shomron — All integral components of Divinely-ordained Land of Israel, or whether one is talking about the wellbeing of the former Gush Katif residents, or about Jonathan Pollard, the captive Chayalim, the MIAs or aiding, supporting and rescuing Israel’s Arab collaborators who have furnished Israel with invaluable, priceless information but who Israel’s protexia-class now abandons — we’re talking about issues of loyalty and Jewish principle. And we’re talking about turning Israel’s protexia-class governance upside-down, inside-out and casting them out! MB

15 Kadima MKs Oppose Olmert’s Golan Withdrawal Stance, by Hillel Fendel (Israel National News)

Excerpts;

The majority of the Knesset faction of Kadima – Israel’s largest party and political home of the Prime Minister and most of the more influential Cabinet ministers – opposes a giveaway of the Golan Heights.

The results of an internal party poll to this effect were published on the Kadima party website. The site emphasizes that the results are “fluid,” as they are dependent on the precise nature of an agreement that might be signed with Syria.

Prime Minister Olmert has not denied reports of last week that he transmitted a message to Syria stating he would be willing to give up the entire Golan in exchange for peace with the North Korean ally.

“Do You Favor Significant Withdrawal?”
The party’s 29 MKs were asked whether they would support a “significant withdrawal” from the Golan Heights. This term was defined as either the uprooting of all or most of the 33 Jewish towns there, or their transfer to Syrian sovereignty with a measure of Israeli autonomy.

Fifteen of the 29 MKs said they are totally against a “significant withdrawal.” These included ten members of the Knesset Golan lobby – Ruchama Avraham Belila, Eli Aflalo, Tzachi HaNegbi, Yoel Hasson, David Tal, Marina Solodkin, Ze’ev Elkin, Ronit Tirosh, Michael Nudelman, and Shai Hermesh – as well as Yaakov Edry, Sha’ul Mofaz, Avraham Hirschson, Ze’ev Boim, and Otniel Shneller. This number includes four Cabinet ministers (Mofaz, Boim, Edry and Belila).

Transportation Minister Mofaz told reporters in Washington on Monday that surrendering the Golan to the Iranian ally would mean giving Iran control of the high ground overlooking much of northern Israel. The former Defense Minister, who met with U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, is visiting Washington as part of the American-Israeli strategic dialogue that takes place every six months.

The position of two Kadima MKs – Minister Gideon Ezra and Amira Dotan – is not clear. Ezra has gone on record as saying that there is no point in talking with Syria at present.

Twelve Kadima MKs say they favor a “significant withdrawal” from the Golan in exchange for peace with the country the US terms a “terrorism sponsor.” They are Olmert, Ministers Livni, Dichter, Sheetrit, Ramon, and Bar-On, and Shlomo Mula, Dalia Itzik, Menachem Ben-Sasson, Yitzchak Ben-Yisrael, Yochanan Plesner, and Majli Whbee.
