The hope is that the election of Peretz will lead not only to a legitimate peace with the Palestinians, but also a return to the more egalitarian impulses of an earlier Israeli society. Perhaps their will now be an Israeli leader who can wage war not only against terrorism but also the privatizers amd rapacious capitalism that has been spawned in Israel over the past twenty years. The trickle down economic policies of Israel have only served to pauperize large numbers of people and enrich a few. All of the most negative attributes of american capitalism have been blindly emulated by Israel and hopefully Peretz will reverse this trend.
