    Haaretz yesterday reported that the leftist block in Israel would gain 57 votes in the elections. But if you look at what Haaretz calls leftst, then you will see Ehud Barak and his Ha'atzmaut inclluded in the left for 100%. IS Barak a leftist? In the period he has been minister of Defense has he done anything remotely close to somehting leftist? Todays report shows again that 'leftist' Barak is just as bad as his 'rightist' compatriates. And why put Kadima (a child of Ariel Sharon, more hardliner you cannot find) in the list of 'the left'? Anyone check the rightists on that list? No, the left, the people who really believe compromise with Palestine is necessary and possible, are already a small minority in the Knesset.
