‘My Country has Deserted Me!’

(p.888) 29 ‘My Country has Deserted Me!’
Moshe Sharett

Sharett's resignation from government reflected a deep political malaise in Israeli politics in general, and in Mapai in particular, that would gradually become clear even to some contemporary politicians. It affected the political situation in the country in the long as well as the short run. The resignation itself certainly did nothing to stop this malaise from spreading; if anything it only accelerated the political problems that Israel would face both internally and among the nations. In fact, it was not long before Sharett learned about the extent of the unrest in his party.
