Katz warns Likud member Shlomi Oz to leave party

Likud leadership candidate Yisrael Katz sent a letter to Likud member Shlomi Oz, an affiliate of Omri Sharon, on Tuesday morning threatening to push him and his people out of the party. Katz said in the letter that he had information that while belonging to the Likud, Oz was also working with people from Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Kadima party, Army Radio reported. "Your actions are illegitimate and hurt the Likud's chances in elections," Katz wrote to Oz. Oz responded, "I got to the Likud before Katz, and I will remain in it after him."
