Gideon's Blog

In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

For some reason, I think I have something to say to you. You think you have something to say to me? Email me at: gideonsblogger -at- yahoo -dot- com

Sharon fires Shas ministers reports JPost, over their opposition to the budget. This could mean elections are coming, soon. Without Shas, Sharon is dependent on Labor for a Knesset majority. Everyone assumes that if elections were held soon, Likud would get a significantly larger bloc than it has now - at Shas's and Labor's expense. Sharon presumably wants to control the timing of the election, and wouldn't make himself vulnerable unless he were planning to call new elections anyhow. But we'll see.
