ABSTRACT
This article discusses the meaning of Shimon Peres's resignation from Israel's Labor Party. At the age of 82 it would usually mean retirement, but for Peres it means he's throwing his fortunes with Ariel Sharon who also resigned from the Likud Party. Both Peres and Sharon hope to divorce themselves from their parties' hardliners and forge a peace accord with Palestine. Analysts are not sure that Peres's support will help Sharon in the upcoming election.
