Bizzaro Universe?- Let's read these two paragraphs of the BBC's coverage of the Likud primary and wonder what has happened to Israeli politics as of late
Latest opinion polls of party members give Mr Sharon - who is portraying himself as a national father figure and the voice of moderation on the key Palestinian issue - a commanding lead of over 20%. Mr Netanyahu, who says he will never agree to the creation of a Palestinian state while militant attacks are being made against Israelis, has accused pollsters of exaggerating the gap between them.
Ariel Sharon as a moderate on the PLO? No self-respecting journalist could have written that without adding a "Yeah, suuure" a year ago. Not good for Yasser and the boys.
