Israel: Ariel Sharon leave the Likud

So, Ariel Sharon decided to leave the Likud and form a new political party. How does this sound in the Israeli blogsphere? Well, Lisa participated in the BBC radio programme about the same. Andrew Schamess call it “The Little Bang“. Joseph Alexander Norland writes: “To the people of Israel and to the Likud party: Congratulations!“, while Lo Niskach ve'Lo Nislach writes: “Sharon's Objective: Dictatorship!“. Imshin is excited to see who joins Sharon from the Likud and even more interesting to see who joins him from Labor, and David wishes Sharon a good luck, however hopes that he deals with this mess first. On the other hand, Batya wonders why is Sharon starting another party?
