I am really surprized, that the Labor elected such person, as Amir Peretz: he is unfit to be a Histadruth leader, not just PM of Israel. And the Labor preferred this man, who was suspected for corruption, to Shimon Peres, a serious politician with unpeccable reputation. Amir Peretz is indeed a new Barak, but worse modification. I am even more surprized, that the polls show Amir Peretz would win more votes, than Shimon Peres. I don't understand how the left wing voters can be caught into the same trap once again, after Barak's failure. And what I really cannot understand is how such serious journalist as Akiva Eldar (even though I do not agree with him on most of issues) can write with such sympathy about Amir Peretz.
