Founded in 1977
Shlomtzion (a contraction of the words "Shalom" and "Tzion"—"peace" and "Zion"—that forms the name of a queen in ancient Israel) was founded by Ariel Sharon before the 1977 elections, after he had left Likud, and negotiations with various parties had failed.
In ideological terms, Shlomtzion was on the right of the political spectrum. It staunchly opposed withdrawal from the territories, supported the settlement enterprise, and claimed that "Jordan is Palestine." Shortly after the 1977 elections, in which it received two seats, Shlomtzion merged with the Likud, which was about to form its first government. At that point Shlomtzion ceased to exist as an independent entity.
