Re: Likud elections, I think it matters not a whit how many ultra-hawks got to the top of the Likud list. Sharon won the primary - decisively. Mofaz is not a particularly popular figure and the other names mentioned - like Sharon's son Omri - have no popular following at all. Why shouldn't people with their own constituencies - like Livna, HaNegbi and Landau -have done well? The one good bit of news is how poorly Moshe Feiglin did. The more I learn about his group, the more alarming it seems. His relationship to Likud is comparable to David Duke's relationship to the GOP. Thankfully, it looks like he's still utterly marginal.
