PM Faces Likud Revolt
JERUSALEM [MENL] -- Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, blamed for Israel's
defeat in the war against Hamas, faces a revolt within his ruling Likud
Leading members of the Likud, concerned over polls that oppose the
unilateral withdrawal, have begun to distance themselves from Netanyahu as
the conflict in the Gaza Strip turns into a war of attrition. The members
have stressed that they would no longer support Netanyahu's position to
establish a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
