The Likud and Toppling the Olmert Government

Before pondering the title of this short article, please read those sections of Israel’s Penal Law defining acts that constitute treason:

  1. the category of acts which “impair the sovereignty” of the State of Israel—section 97(a);

  2. the category of acts which “impair the integrity” of the State of Israel— section 97(b);

  3. the category of acts under section 99 which give assistance to an “enemy” in war against Israel, which the Law specifically states includes a terrorist organization;

  4. the category of acts in section 100 which evince an intention or resolve to commit one of the acts prohibited by sections 97 and 99.

Now, with the above Penal Law in mind, please inform me how joining the Likud Party—a party that surrendered some 40 percent of Judea and Samaria to Israel’s enemy, the PLO-Palestinian Authority, a party, therefore, that has prima facie committed treason—how, I ask, can joining the Likud bring down the Olmert Government and prevent Israel’s demise before that Government surrenders more Jewish territory to the enemy?
