MK Danny Danon (Likud) on Tuesday morning compared the Kadima party to Titanic, "a sinking ship whose members are abandoning it," upon receiving the news that Kadima MK Avi Dichter announced overnight that he would leave the Knesset and join the cabinet.

At the request of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Dichter will replace outgoing Home Front Defense Minister Matan Vilna'i, who will leave next week for Beijing to be Israel's next ambassador to China.

"The total disintegration of Kadima, which is approaching a storm ... will not cross the threshold in the coming Knesset elections, and will disappear from the political scene once and for all," said Danon.
