Sharon government going even further right
Ariel Sharon’s minority government survived a series of no-confidence votes in the knesset last night, only to be confronted by a fresh challenge that left the hardline administration looking highly unstable.
It clung to office only because a minority party opposed to a Palestinian state abstained from voting while it seeks a pledge from Israel’s prime minister to take his administration further to the right. <further?>
And just to make sure there’s no possibility of a peaceful Middle East –
Sharon says Iran should be next target after Iraqi War ends.
