The primary of the Kadima party is about to take place this Wednesday. The two front-runners are the Minister of Foreign Affairs Ms. Tzipi Livni, and the Minister of Transportation, Mr. Shaul Mofaz. The person who will be elected by the Kadima party members is very likely to replace Ehud Olmert as Israel’s next Prime Minister.
Shaul Mofaz boasts his experience as the IDF’s General Chief of Staff, but not many people know that Tzipi Livni has had her own share of “rough” experience. It’s been revealed in the news in the past few weeks that Livni served in the Mossad while in her 20’s, and that she was stationed in Paris for a period of time. Obviously there’s no mention of what she was doing there, and she cannot brag about that chapter in her life, but it leaves one wondering how much we don’t actually know of this woman. As an avid news reader, I still have no clue where she stands on many of the issues, and what she plans to do in case she enters the PM office.
