Ehud Barak as a "Little Israel" supporter? I think that says it all. If anything was designed to ensure that right of centre voters abroad will clamour for the vote, this is it! The world has moved on and passed him by - you know, that interconnected viral internet globe, that place where everybody knows everything instantly. What on earth is he holding on to? Its that hoary old argument about how you can't criticise us unless you wear the uniform and pay the taxes. I don't recall the anti-Vietnam war protestors ever getting that kind of argument from pro-war advocates. If this is the last gasp of the once proud Israel Labour Party, its an unfitting end.
