Noam Sheizaf, the wonderful Israel blogger at Promised Land, issues a challenge to whatever still exists of the useful Left in the Jewish state (what, two or three people these days?) and tells in the US Forward that it’s time to ship up or face even greater irrelevance:
The future of the Israeli left does not lie in the few seats it could win back from Kadima, but rather with the people who are waiting on the other side of the demographic wall. If the left is truly committed to protecting Israeli democracy, it can’t go on with its near-exclusively Jewish parties and arguments based on demography, because they all lead in the opposite direction. If the right is using the two-state solution for its goal of Jewish superiority within the Green Line, the left should offer an alternative model of true partnership with Israel’s Arab minority.
