    Personaly I would suggest he stay as an advisor to Peretz for now, Peretz is well placed to hit the Likud hard, because he cannot be labeled and ashkenasi elitist and "Yafeh Nefesh"If Beilin were too prominent he would bring that "far left soft on the palestinian" type of persona. I like Beilin and I think his ideas are very constructive but I think Peretz should not detract in any way from his strong points at this time .He is a Moroccan Jew so there goes the nonsensical charge "ata ashkenazi ma ata yodeah bemet al ha aravim", he is from a development town so their goes the charge "ata ashkenazi ma ata yodeah al ha bayot" he is a real labor leader so their goes the charge "ata ashkenazi millionaire ma ata yodeah al ha am" Peterz is really what the Likud has falsley claimed to be. I can just see them squirming now the Likud 'big men of the people" will now have to argue with a real man of the People, not a politican who says he is but one who deals with the real issues of the people everyday.And best of all Peretz can really make the case how a solution with the Palestinians is linked organicaly to the real intrets of the country, not in theory but point by point.He is an excellent symbol of what is right with Israel and the Labor party I am sure many have it up to their eyeballs with being exploited by the religious and settlers, who miss the Israel that they knew, who want to feel they have "share in Jesse a portion in Jacob".G-d Bless and give strength and wisdom to Peretz, he might come on stronger than imagined he might shake it up real good.An Israeli Lula,someone I would be proud to say is Prime Minister of Israel. Go Peretz Go!!!
