What Left is he talking about? Israel has become as the US is. There is no "Left." Once upon a time, there was an Israeli "left." It built the country. But no more. Labor has become Likud Lite. There is no impetus in the society for advancing the common good. Without that there is no "left" just a bunch of leftist whiners. The problem with having no left is that the Right becomes so dominant that what would normally be the "Center" ends up being thought of as "Left." This leads to discrediting the center, and driving the Right, further Right. Israel at least has opposition parties, and thus the chance evading total domination by the extreme right. Here in the US we don't even have an 'opposition' party, not even a whiner party, just a party of whimpering wimps.
