Likud Cabinet members refusing to lobby for the Israeli prime minister’s disengagement plan may lose their jobs. Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom, Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and Education Minister Limor Livnat, all of whom reluctantly endorsed Ariel Sharon’s disengagement plan from the Palestinians, after it received President Bush’s backing earlier this month, have made clear that they will not campaign to persuade Likud members to vote for the plan in a May 2 party referendum.
