Benjamin Netanyahu has resigned as Israeli finance minister, in protest over the Gaza pullout. It's well known that Bibi is interested in Sharon's job, so it's interesting how he timed this: late enough in the timeline so as to have little actual effect upon the pullout which he is supposedly protesting, but near enough to Israeli election season so that his brave act of conscience will still be in Israeli voters' minds when they go to the polls.
