Likud Seeks Sharon’s Return

Likud leader Menachem Beigin, who is trying to bring Reserve Gen. Ariel Sharon back into the opposition group. paid a visit to Sharon’s farm today. But neither man would divulge what was said.

Sharon, who was the founder of Likud, reportedly does not want to return to its leadership until the various parties and factions in Likud unite as one party. Beigin’s effort today was seen as a reflection of a fear within Likud that Sharon might join Prof. Yigael Yadin, the archaeologist and former Chief of Staff, in forming a new party.
