Exit Barak, enter Israel’s progressive politics – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

all signs point to a place for Labor in the Israeli political arena if it reorganizes around a path and a leader, and leads the struggle from the Knesset against the right-wing government headed by Benjamin Netanyahu and his partners, Avigdor Lieberman, Eli Yishai and Ehud Barak.

The weakness of Kadima, which has avoided an ideological debate with Netanyahu, and which houses some members in support of Lieberman’s racist bills, gives a big opportunity to a small, unified and determined opposition group.

This is a chance for Labor to rebuild and articulate a unique voice whose absence is felt in the current Knesset. The split frees Labor from the struggle between Barak’s opponents and supporters, which dominated its agenda in the past two years.
