The Knesset: many parties, one mind

Intransigence, expansionism, racism and warmongering now seem to be the consensus across Israeli politics.
Ehud Barak's move to join Binyamin Netanyahu's coalition and rub shoulders around the cabinet table with arch racist Avigdor Lieberman should not have surprised anybody, but was still met with shocked lamentations from the ranks of the decomposing remnants of the Zionist left. The fact that Tzipi Livni, leader of the opportunistic "central" Kadima party, demonstrated more courage and integrity (for which the long knives in her party have already been drawn against her), is hardly a breathtaking bombshell either for anybody who has been following the careers of the power-obsessed general and the goody-two-shoes girl scout.
