Analysis: Likud, the anti-ISIS party

The Islamic State has captured land totaling more than 20 times the size of Israel using a strategy of scaring people into surrender with public decapitations.

The Likud has stayed in power using the opposite strategy: It keeps its head, no matter what it does to the rest of its body.

There have been Likud heads who acted out of their own self-interest and against the party’s ideology, and the Likud has kept them in power and supported their decisions.
