[There is a much shorter piece excerpted from Gidi Weitz's long interview: Meretz chairman: Barak is the most dangerous person in Israel. Oron: "Barak has caused harm to the Israeli left by making it appear there is no Palestinian partner for peace...."]
A companion piece was published in Ha'Aretz by Boaz Gaon and Jonathan Gurfinkel. Also long and thoughtful, it needs to be read after you read the Oron interview. It may be the call to action that is so needed. Please take time to read both of these pieces.--Lilly
Ehud Barak is dangerous, Ehud Olmert was wronged, Marwan Barghouti should be freed, and there is hope that the Israeli left can get its act together. After 23 years in the Knesset, Haim Oron of Meretz is retiring to his kibbutz, leaving behind the smallest-ever number of MKs from the party he helped lead for so long.
