I understand what Caroline Glick is trying to do. Given the horrific choices available to Israeli voters today, she's trying to salvage some ray of hope out of a bad situation. And I'm in total sympathy. But ...
NETANYAHU IS a loyal representative of Likud's traditional ideology that Israel must fight, not appease its enemies. As such, he is the only political leader who based his campaign around showing the dangers of Kadima's expulsion and retreat policy.
Glick said something like this last week, and I let it pass. But no one can claim with a straight face that Bibi has been loyal to anything other than his own ambitions. Let's not forget that at almost every stage of Sharon's 'disengagement' juggernaut, Bibi backed down, gave in, shut up. His eleventh hour resignation notwithstanding, he didn't show much of a backbone. He never has.
So if Bibi has been a whipping boy for Olmert in this campaign, he has no one to blame but himself.
