    The article did already enough to blame Barak, particularly on the personal level. And that is indeed true and damning. There was no need for you to contribute more. The way I see it, the Labor was destroyed by the Histadrut (a union that cares only for itself), and Peretz plus a few other nobodies. The respected old guard did not foster any worthy successors. Barak was and still is the only real personality there. Besides his military prowess, he is also the ONLY very important barrier countering Likud's shenanigans against Israel's legal system, I don't want to explain why... Time and again, Likud's maneuvers were stopped by Barak. Right now, as Likud intends to destroy the office of the Attorney General, he again, defends the legal system. That alone is more important than anything! Otherwise, I am also flabbergasted at his pettiness... not to speak that with his telescope in his apartment he can look right into my bedroom, that's how close I am to him...
