Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom (l) and former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made last ditch campaign efforts as polls opened around the nation for the Likud party primaries. As the polls narrowed the gap between frontrunner Netanyahu and Shalom, the two spent voting day making overtures toward each other rather than the usual barbs they had enchanged in recent days. “Cooperation with Silvan Shalom will be resumed tonight, not tomorrow morning. We will work together and lead the Likud to accomplishments,” Netanyahu said. Shalom said he wanted Netanyahu commit to staying in the Likud even if he loses the elections. “I hope to bring about a revolution in Likud. Today is an important day and people should show responsibility and take part in this political revolution,” Shalom said.
