Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday called on Kadima chair Tzipi Livni to join his government, like former prime minister Menahem Begin did before the Six Day War. "The State of Israel stands before huge challenges," he said at the weekly cabinet meeting. "I really hope that Kadima will respond to my offer, and join the government. I hope they will do what Menahem Begin did in his time." Begin and his Gahal party joined a national unity government under then-prime minister Levi Eshkol at the outbreak of the 1967 war, after sitting in the opposition since the founding of the state in 1948.
