    Apparently the Israeli public's repudiation of Labor and Meretz anti-national pro-Palestinian posturing is not getting through to the folks at Ha'aretz. Every rocket from Gaza that falls on Israel makes anti-national positions like Ha'aretz' more irrelevant. Do the people at Ha'aretz think the public will forget what you wrote and said when this is over? There was a time when Labor was a colossus standing astride Israeli politics and was led by giants. The reason Labor is no longer the largest party, no longer the second largest party, no longer the third largest party, no longer even the fourth largest party is because of unthinking and irrational nonsense like this article. Just how much humiliation do you at Haaretz plan on heaping on yourselves. The problem with Labor is that the giants of its past have been replaced by the pygmies of its present.
