Kadima Lawmakers Blast Coalition Deal

Kadima lawmakers explicitly expressed their discontent following a surprise deal that introduced the party into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition on Friday, with a split in the one-time opposition faction seeming likelier than ever.

The party officials spoke at a Tel Aviv conference organized by left-wing NGO Peace Now.

Kadima MK Shlomo Molla said that if his party “doesn’t condition its being part of the coalition in advancing the peace process, then we have nothing to do there.”

“If that doesn’t happen we need to admit that we’re the Likud’s useless baggage. I can certainly say that I personally won’t be there,” he said, adding: “There are bad winds blowing through Israeli society – there’s a lot of racism, discrimination of minorities, wronging refugees.”

Molla said it was the “spirit of the radical right which joins this entire atmosphere, offering to confront the Palestinians, to avoid peace, and to make [Palestinians] disappear from the public eye. Netanyahu is both running away and covering up.”
