The decision to form a unity government that includes Kadima is a betrayal to Likud party voters, MK Danny Danon (Likud) charged late Monday night following the announcement of the deal struck between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and opposition leader Shaul Mofaz.

"Likud's values have been violated," he charged. "And so has the public that voted for Likud and got Kadima and [Defense Minister Ehud] Barak."

Danon complained that the move will embolden the defense minister "for the next year and a half."

"[The agreement] will damage the settlement movement, cause injury to Likud's values and to the Israeli public that elected Likud to lead Israel," he said.
