To the dismay of the Left, the public won’t go along for another ride with them, no matter how much hysteria they promote.
Over the past few days, two incidents occurred which together, tell us the story of the Israeli Left.
Monday night, Channel 10 revealed that the Labor Party has no regard for Israel’s national interests.
Channel 10 disclosed that ahead of the 2015 Knesset elections, Labor – and now Zionist Union – leader MK Yitzhak Herzog engaged in private negotiations with PLO chief and Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas. During the course of their meetings, Herzog signed a letter, which he sent to Abbas.
Among other things, in the letter Herzog pledged that a government under his leadership will withdraw from all of Judea and Samaria, partition Jerusalem, surrender Israel’s security control over the Jordan Valley, permit the immigration of Palestinian “refugees” into the post-withdrawal rump Jewish state, and place Israel’s counterterror operations under the control of a joint Israeli-Jordanian-Palestinian security committee.
Abbas for his part, agreed to a “symbolic” Israeli security presence in the Jordan Valley.
Whether Abbas agreed to Herzog’s offer is unclear.
