1. Labor is so distorted that it had lost its way
from its original lost way.
2. Good Cop

...fools the world, while the Bad Cop screws the natives out of their land.
3. Israel clearly rejects Labor. It doesn't belong in govt.
Chaim ,   Israel   (11.04.10)
Barak and Labor are living in a time warp. The days when Labor was a big, important party are long over. It lost it's support base by adopting the ludicrous and dangerous policies of appeasement. Today, Labor would be lucky to win 7 seats in an election. Clearly Israel rejects Labor. It doesn't belong in the government.
4. The Israeli Left is Dead
blash ,   Jerusalem   (11.04.10)
Avodah won 45 seats in 1965. Today, it's not even in the top 3 parties in power. Between Likud, Kadima, and Yisrael Beitenu, 58% of the Knesset firmly supports free-market economics. Kibbutzes have been dying off, the few remaining are mostly privatized co-ops. Israel built its first toll-highway, Highway 6. The only real remaining face of Socialism in Israel is the religious parties looking for free lunches for kollel students and is under severe attack by the rest of the country. The Israel Land Administration, which has owned some 93% of all the land in Israel since its inception, is being forced to start to sell off its land to the people who live on it and privatize. The Left can only continue in Israel through two ways - Bituach Leumi and a stubborn belief in the peace process. Both will unravel themselves in due time as they become unsustainable.
5. Lot's its way? Maybe not, but it sure has lost its voters
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (11.04.10)
Of course Labor has lost its way. Barak speaks of the "peace camp". Sorry, Ehud, but that's not what Labor is all about. It's supposed to be a social democratic movement. It switch to worship the golden calf of Oslo, and left social democracy for somebody else to pick up. Sadly, nobody has.
6. Only Barak has lost his way.
Ben Avraham ,   Tel Aviv   (11.05.10)
7. Labor hasn't lost it's way
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (11.05.10)
It's been on a suicide kick for a long time.
