JNS.org – Kadima party leader and former Israeli defense minister Shaul Mofaz announced on Tuesday that he is retiring from politics and will not run in March’s Knesset elections.

“Public service for me is a way of life and a great privilege. In the future, in any role I’ll have and in any path I’ll take, I’ll walk for Israel,” Mofaz said in a statement on Tuesday.

“I’ll be frank, I’m not an outstanding politician. Politics is not something I aspire to excel in. Israel’s glorious legacy has been blessed with worthy military leaders, and I prefer to be one of them,” said Mofaz.
