  The Likud Party
The Likud (Union) was formed by the joining together of Free Center, Laam and Gahal in preparation for the 1973 elections, the Likud has become one of Israel’s major conservative parties.
Likud was last in power from 1996 until 1999 when Netanyahu lost to Ehud Barak.
Likud’s platform includes a peace treaty based on "peace for peace," maintaining the status quo in religion/state issues and reforms in public health, education and welfare.

  Likud
At the present Likud is the leading party in the government of Ariel Sharon.
The uniting factor for Likud was the idea that the territories occupied by Israel in the Six-Day War of 1967; Sinai, Gaza Strip, West Bank, and Golan Heights should be included into the state of Israel.
The extended Likud bloc, which counted 40 seats before the elections, were reduced to 32 seats, which in total represented the worst ever result for the party.

It also seems that political considerations, rather than "the introduction of new priorities for encouraging economic growth in the Negev," were responsible for the Likud failing to cancel the Negev Law, despite the huge cost to the state budget of some NIS 1 billion per year.
The cost of the law was reduced, but, fearing a backlash from Negev residents, the Likud did not dare to cancel the law or even to freeze it, as it had done with other costly laws.
On the subject of yeshiva students being drafted, the Likud has changed its position depending on whether it is in government or in the opposition.

 Likud Votes for Armageddon
On mother’s day, the Likud party overwhelmingly rejected the idea of a Palestinian state in complete defiance of the position advanced by President Bush who sees the establishment of a Palestinian State as the only solution to resolving the Middle East conflict.
The Likud vote not only rejects the only path to comprehensive peace in the Middle East but also makes a mockery of American positions on the subject and undermines American interests in the region and its war on terrorism.
While Hamas and Likud may use different means, the former preferring suicide bombers, and the later preferring strategic bombers (F-16s), tanks and barricades, it seems that they mirror each other in their intransigence and anti-peace ideologies.

 Ariga: Likud unity? Wednesday, November 16, 2005
The Likud faction meeting was devoted to discussing when to hold elections and it was no accident that Netanyahu pressed for elections in May, and not the March dates that are being bandied about in the Knesset by among others, Amir Peretz.
Netanyahu argued that May would be a better date for elections, 'to give Peretz more time to make mistakes,' but some in the Likud suggested privately that Netanyahu might be jockeying for the later date in the belief that his chances at beating Sharon in an internal race might yet improve.
Kristal said that the Likud would remain united around Peretz until after the elections and then the all out war in the Likud would resume.
