 Menachem Begin - Printer-friendly - MSN Encarta
Begin played a key role in establishing the Gahal faction (a merger of Herut and the more progressive Liberal Party) in 1965, which helped legitimize his hard-line views among Israel’s middle class.
Begin and his Gahal colleagues opposed the government’s acceptance of a proposal from the United States that implied Israel’s willingness to consider withdrawing from some of the territory gained in the Six-Day War, and Begin resigned from the government in August 1970.
In 1973 Gahal joined with several smaller right-wing parties to form the Likud (Unity) opposition bloc, and Begin became its leader.

In 1965, Herut and the Liberal Party united to form the Gahal party under Begin’s leadership, but was once again unsuccessful in increasing its share of parliament seats in the election held that year.
In 1966, during Gahal’s party convention, he was challenged by the young Ehud Olmert who called for his resignation.
At the outbreak of the Six Day War in June 1967, Gahal joined a "national unity" government under Prime Minister Levi Eshkol of the Labour Party, resulting in Begin serving in the Cabinet for the first time, as a Minister Without Portfolio.

 The Antithesis
This enabled Gahal, and subsequently Likud, to be seen by the general Israeli public as credible opposition parties capable of running the government when the time came.
The Gahal list was unable to capture the combined votes of the Herut and Liberal parties for two reasons: first, the union caused the departure of progressive liberals who went on to form the Independent Liberal Party; second, the amazing success of the Six-Day War helped Labor immensely in the 1969 elections.
The inclusion of Gahal, immediately after the war, in the national unity government, did not pay immediate dividends in spite of the clever tactic employed by Begin, taking the position of minister without portfolio.

The word congregation in Psalms 22:22 is from gahal and is translated church in Hebrews 2:12 from ekklesia.
It is true the word gahal is used in places where reference is not to an assembly of people, but the whole Israelite nation.
It has, therefore, been mistakenly argued that since ekklesia is used as the equivalent of gahal in some places that it must have the same latitude of meaning.

 The Review - Analysing Arik
In 1972, persuading Menahem Begin of the Gahal party(Gush Herut and Liberalim), that Gahal needed to broaden its appeal in Israeli society by reaching out to former Labor Party members and others, he put together the Likud Party by attracting Rafi (a breakaway party from Labor), and other small parties.
Sharon’s broadening of Gahal into Likud was one of the reasons why Likud was to come to power in the 1977 Israeli elections.
The other major reason for Likud’s victory in 1977 was, of course, the lingering memories of Israel’s near defeat in the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
