Nobody is more vindictive than political partners who have come to the end of their joint road. When Moshe Sharett and David Ben–Gurion parted, they embarked upon separate roads that would ultimately harm them both. Although Sharett was to be the first casualty in this vicious battle, Ben–Gurion would also be grievously affected by the consequences of this major confrontation. Both politicians tried to mend fences before the final rift, but it was too late. The developments that contributed to Sharett's resignation from the government while he was still in his prime as an established political leader and a noted diplomat had been going on for too long. Since Sharett did not wish to abandon the government during an acute political or military crisis, he was contemplating resigning during the relative political and military lull in early 1956.
