NPR's Mike Shuster in Jerusalem reports a car bomb exploded in Jerusalem today, injuring one person, just two days after rightwing leader Ariel Sharon won a sweeping victory in Israel's election for Prime Minister. Sharon is now consulting with the Labor Party of his defeated rival, Ehud Barak, in a bid to form a national unity government. Sharon might have to moderate some of his right-wing views to ensure Labor's participation. That has some of Israel's West Bank settlers uncertain about what approach Sharon will take to their presence in the occupied territories.
