Kadima won but it's a very right-wing Knesset, no?
There are 32 far-right seats (NRP-NU + Yisrael Beitenu + Likud), plus 19 ultra-orthos (UTJ + Shas). That's 51 seats! And these are all parties, which, in theory, opposed the disengagement.

My dosser sources tell me that United Torah Judaism wouldn't rule out a coalition with Kadima.
