As Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu continued his efforts to keep the Kadima party in his coalition on Wednesday, it became apparent that Kadima continues to speak in multiple voices on the question of whether to stay or go.

Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz convened the Kadima faction at the Knesset, briefing the MKs about his decision to give Netanyahu an ultimatum on accepting the recommendations of the Keshev Committee on equalizing the burden of IDF service. He then enabled MKs to speak their mind on the matter.

While some MKs like Avi Dichter and Othniel Schneller were dead set against leaving the coalition, others like Shlomo Molla and Majallie Whbee said the party made a mistake by joining in the first place and should leave as soon as possible.
