    I have said it numerous time over the past years (in these talk-backs) that for the center-left (that is center+left) all the disparate parties have to unite to represent the entire population of that sector. This means also all the Arab parties. For that to happen, all sectors must have proportional representation, meaning, the palestinian Arabs must have close to a 20-30% representation in meaningful position that will assure the representative (MK) key positions in the government if and when they win any election in the foreseeable future. Such a party needs to organize now and serve as a credible opposition party to capture the hearts and minds of the electorate, develop long-range policies that are acceptable to the majority of the citizens, develop a course of action and adhere to it. Above all- the personality involved have to leave their petty agendas and egos behind and adopt a a plan that put the best interest of the states and the people above all else. In other words- that party has to present a paradigmatic shift from the business as usual. Else, there is no end to the misery in sight. Perhaps a best way to start is to name the new party the Israeli social- democratic party (Hamiflaga hasozial-democratit hayisraelit).

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
