We must move forward, not backward, upward, not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom

Does Ariel Sharon's new Kadima party take its name from this line from the original version of David Broza's optimistic song "Yihyeh Tov"?

V'az hu amar "Kadima, rak teitz'u meihashetachim"

I hope so!


  1. i love that song, its awsome!!

    i join in your hope, maybe they will make Broza there icon like the donkey, elephant, and yes, David Broza.

  2. isnt the frase "Kadima" from what the israelie army is famous for, "Kadima Achari!" A commander always leads his troop into a battle nomatter what the circomestances. the Israelie army is known fo this. the message convaid by this is, we care so much about this mission and feel that it must be caried out so i (the commander) will lead you in, i will go first becuase the mission need to be done. i orginally thought this was a stupid tacktic and why have you commander killed when petty oficers can, but then i realized that the message is more important that legistics. The naming of this party is very iteresting. the name brings about a sence of strenght and most inportandly leadership. this name says, yes i feel it is important so importand i am willing to take the intiatave, which in this case they have. this knew political party's name covays strenght and connects with most israelie citizens on a posive note.


  3. Everytime I hear the name of Sharon's party, I feel like it should followed by "Chalutzim."
