What left is left? there is no left in Israel today - only a right wing, who now have to adopt left wing policies because they know they can't continue to oppose peace forever, even though they want to. The right, bolstered by the religious right have won so convincingly that there is no opposition - and now the right will essentially have to become the left and allow the scales to be re-aligned so that the ultra-right are the new slightly right of center. We are up a creek, no question.
