The Last Mohicans Of Israel’S Left

“I don’t know what Israel would be like without political change.” Mr. melav Michaeli’s warning echoed the end of the world in a video conference with foreign journalists, who were interested in the surprise of the new historical left leader. A week ago, he defeated the conservative party, which founded the Jewish state in 1948, with 77% of the vote. Its purpose is to save the labor party from forgetting. So far, all the polls have positioned the labor party as an extraparliamentary member of the legislature on March 23, that is, a quarter of the Israeli extraparliamentary members in less than two years.

“Since the assassination of [Labour] Isaac Rabin and the first victory of [conservative] Benjamin Netanyahu a quarter of a century ago, we have experienced an unstoppable decline of democracy.” Michaeli, 54, has worked in the press for 25 years, sat on the knees of Parliament for nearly 10 years and made reluctant remarks in the house of Representatives. “We need to change and seize this opportunity to rebuild a centre left government.”

His overwhelming victory in the primaries – despite the group’s agency’s attempts to suspend the primaries and being forced to take legal action – reversed the poll. Labor has another five members in the 120 seat house of representatives to choose from and join Netanyahu’s replacement coalition, which has been in power in Israel since 2009.

“Welcome to the worst position in Israeli politics,” said anshel Pfeffer, a columnist for the progressive daily Haaretz, where Michaeli works, saluting Sona on the Haaretz page. “You’ve been the tenth leader of the party in the last 20 years,” his predecessor reminded him, “and that doesn’t include those who are in power again.” Awoda, the long-standing successor to the army that has ruled Israel for 30 years since 1948, has been abusing.

Driven by Rabin, the left won the vote in 1992, with 34% of the vote. Twenty years ago, Prime Minister Barak was defeated at the beginning of the second intifada (2000-2005), shattering hopes of an agreement between Oslo and the Palestinian people.

Labor’s small partner in the center right government has been diluted in the center left opposition and has lost its concrete weight. After working with Tzipi Livni, the centrist, to reappear in the 2015 election with 19% of the vote, that proportion fell to 5% in the April 2019 legislative election. Before Michael won, he did not exceed the minimum threshold of 3.25% in opinion polls.

“I call on labour ministers to leave the Netanyahu government or the party immediately.” This is the first order of the new leader. He was referring to Amir Peretz, a former chief of staff and a veteran trade union member, and Itzik shmuli, a former leader of the angry youth movement in Tel Aviv in 2011, who took office after the prime minister was indicted for corruption and who remained firmly opposed.

His second decision was to hold a primary open to all voters and supporters to determine the order of candidates on the electoral list. He also broke the silence in the party and proposed a two-state solution. “In Israel, most people want separation and peace with the Palestinian people, but there is no political will among their leaders,” he told foreign media.

The sudden appearance of the experimentalist, who is determined to revive the old left from the ashes, makes the Labor Party dream of having its own group in Parliament. In principle, agreements with other forces, such as the list established by the progressive mayor of Tel Aviv, Ron huldai, since 1998, or with the peace Left Party, Meretz, will not be considered.

In three legislative sessions, retired generals – defense minister Benny Gantz or current foreign minister Gabi Ashkenazi – reflected the electoral choice of the centre left, and now experienced journalists are ready to stand up against Netanyahu. In addition to Michael, former TV presenter Nitzan Horowitz and centrist and opposition leader Yair Lapid also took part in the election, with the goal of pooling a broader choice of power.

Born in petaji tikwa, an elite Zionist family in the central Israeli urban agglomeration, The newly elected leader of the Labour Party has been welcomed through her programs on galgalatz public radio and multiple television channels, and she has expanded her public image to promote the protection of women victims of gender based violence and lgtbiq collective.

“The only thing I can say is that I don’t know what it means for a man to play a leading role in a political party,” she replied in a video conference when asked about the importance of electing a woman to lead the labor party. In 2013, before she became a member of Parliament for the first time, she said goodbye to readers of the Ha’aretz in an article: “political parties need to engage in ideological debates, make ideological decisions, and act on them.”

As the archetype of a secular caste, Ashkenazi (a Jew of Central European descent), a progressive benovant who settled in Tel Aviv, will have to fight hard to persuade Israel to stay away from the edge – basically conservative, Safari and the Eastern Jews, For those who can’t speak fluent English, I believe they will vote for change.

In the wake of the unprecedented unemployment caused by the epidemic, the restoration of the Labour Party’s social agenda may be its biggest obstacle. “The public health structure established by the labor party more than 70 years ago is one of the foundations for the successful vaccination of covid-19 at present,” he explained with seductive conviction in a recent conversation with the international media. Micheli is already part of the last hope to topple Netanyahu, Israel’s longest ruling ruler.
