    we've known the Labour political stance since Camp David 2000 and his advocating of the 1967 borders with territorial exchanges for a peaceful resolution with the Palestinians. The fact that he's a Mizrahi is quite unique and could be advantageous as the MAJORITY of Mizrahim are right-leaning supporters, who've not been typically compromising in their outlook towards making the concessions for peace with the Palestinians. Here's an example, I have a Moroccan-Israeli aunt who is married to my Iraqi-Israeli uncle, both highly educated, etc. She's always voted Likud, except when she voted for Amir Peretz when he ran years ago. It's an additional asset to speak Arabic and to have respectful sentiments towards the Arab cultures. re: Daphni Leef, it helped that Arab Spring was her backdrop for mobilization of Israeli public and that her parents come from the high socioeconomic background because who are those within our societies who can afford to be video editors yet study media communications?
