Llike Ha’aretz, Gil Hoffman of

Llike Ha’aretz, Gil Hoffman of the Jerusalem Post sees Amram Mitzna, the Israeli Labor Party’s new leader, as a sure loser in the upcoming election. He also sees Mitzna’s selection as condemning Labor to the sidelines for the foreseeable future, instead of participating in a unity government as Labor has since Ariel Sharon’s election. Mizna proposes unilaterally pulling Israeli troops out of the Gaza Strip and was the only Labor candidate who said he would negotiate with Arafat. He defeated his two main Labor Party rivals with a little over 50 percent of the vote.
