Likud Primary Shows Dramatic Rightward Shift in Israel’s Ruling Party

 After a primary that was marred by technical problems over the weekend, Israel’s ruling Likud Party has issued unofficial results showing a surprisingly extreme shift in sentiments, with three current cabinet ministers find themselves on the outside looking in.
The three ministers, Benny Begin, Dan Meridor and Michael Eitan, are all long-standing MPs perceived as the more moderate wing of the party. At number 20 on the list Begin might conceivably be re-elected, but the others are almost certainly out, especially now that Likud is running a combined list with the even farther right Yisrael Beiteinu.
