Israel's Labor Party Is Laboring in Vain

Labor’s decision not to form a moderate socially-oriented government with Likud, Hatnuah and the ultra-Orthodox parties is a martyr’s move. The decision not to take part in the post-election power game is the decree of self-immolators with principles.

Once there was a Labor Party. On September 21, 2011, the Labor Party came back to life. Shelly Yacimovich’s victory in the primary held that day turned the party of the past into a party of the future.
