Well one never really got the impression that in the last few decades the Labour party advocated on behalf of the poor, disenfranchised or the more righteous sector of Israeli society. That's why one of my uncles always stated that there's not much difference between Likud and Labour. He says this every decade. Well you know what, any swing of the pendulum to the one extreme over the other, really irks a significant population over another, whether the religious, the business sector or the Histadrut. My interpretation of what went on is slightly different in perspective. What's dominates every sector in Israeli society is the continuing state of belligerence within the ME neighbourhood and that's the immediate threat although abstract to those struggling to make ends meet in their daily lives. But you can't blame them for giving up on peace where it's been outstanding for over six decades, and instead their concern is what Maslow's hierarchy of needs implies for survival. As currently, my sleeplessness and exhaustion distinctly implies that I have nothing furthermore to say about either peace or state of economics in Israel and must get some sleep!
