Tomorrow Israel heads to the polls in what I consider to be the most dangerous, consequential moment in modern Israel's history. It is beyond me how the Israeli voter can be apathetic. Maybe they are just war weary to the bone. Too bad - snap out of it. Here's how I see it.

PERETZ: Let's dismiss Peretz out of hand. He is a union boss, nothing more. The last thing Israel needs now is a socialist leftard.
OLMERT: I think Olmert is a weak sister. Yes, he will defend Israel but he lacks visionand great leadership qualities. His family's far left activities ought to raise a red flag.
His son Shaul, who lives in New York reportedly signed a petition belonging to the pacifist organization Yesh Gvul, and his other son, Ariel, who lives in Paris and did not serve in the IDF.
Likud officials have also openly attacked Olmert's wife Aliza for her left-leaning views and his daughter Dana, who is active in the Machsom Watch organization that monitors soldiers' treatment of Palestinians at IDF checkpoints in the West Bank.
"Olmert's sons and one of his daughters refused to serve in the IDF, and his sons live overseas and do not see their future in Israel," the ad said. "If Olmert's children who live abroad knew of his withdrawal plan, they would not return to Israel at all." More here.
Kadima without Sharon.....? I don't think so. And Olmert's No. 2, Shimon Peres? Need I say more?
NETANYAHU: Netanyahu is my pick. You need someone hard - made of steel for what's coming and Likud has Natan Sharansky and Edelstein. Yes, he is the lesser of three evils but there you have it. NETANYAHU HAS MY ENDORSEMENT.
